In order to keep your weight loss or fitness goals on track…
It’s important for you to maintain two critical things:
Even though keeping your nutrition on point is very important…
You still need to exercise to burn off those extra calories you may be eating—or overeating.
So…to keep your nutrition on point, make sure you’re including the following;
Lean protein sources
Easily digestible carbs (fruits and vegetables)
Starchy carbohydrates (oats, potatoes, etc.)
If you can keep your nutrition on point, then this simple workout could do wonders for you. Don’t worry…no gym is required (but you may need some small dumbbells or even resistance bands).
Here’s what you need to do:
For the next 12 days, perform one exercise each day, until you’re able to do all 12 exercises. If you’re new to exercise, start with one set and 15 repetitions.
For those who are more familiar, or who have some exercise knowledge and you’ve been working out for some time, feel free to do more.
Here are the exercises:
3. Band/DB rows
5. Side Plank
6. Hip thrusts
7. Dead Bug
8. Step Ups
9. Triceps Dips
10. Single Leg Deadlifts
Remember, if you’re new to exercise, be sure to start with the first exercise on the list, and then add each the next exercise the following day, and repeat until you’ve done all 12 exercises.
This will help you build strength and endurance, and allow you to burn extra calories as you build more lean muscle mass.
Start off with one set with 15 repetitions (more sets if you’re more experienced), and challenge yourself for the next 12 days to add one exercise each day.
There is no reason why you need to let the holiday season interfere with your fitness, health, or weight loss goals. Making smarter decisions when it comes to nutrition, and maintaining an exercise program, will go a long way to reaching your goals—and preventing the usual holiday weight gain. I hope you enjoy this simple workout plan!
