It’s a time of giv­ing. But a sack­ful of presents, a tin of Qual­ity Street and watch­ing Die Hard for the third time in as many days might be tak­ing away from your hard-earned ex­er­cise achieve­ments. Let’s face it: the town you re­turn to at Christ­mas might not have the fit­ness fa­cil­i­ties you’re used to. And even if you’re spend­ing the fes­tive sea­son on home turf, the cold, the dark and lim­ited open­ing times can over­power good in­ten­tions. ‘Max­imis­ing train­ing ef­fi­ciency dur­ing this pe­riod is cru­cial be­cause ex­er­cise fre­quency is lower than nor­mal,’ says Andy Vin­cent, elite trainer at Lon­don’s Third Space. ‘Main­te­nance is an ac­cept­able goal be­cause of the ex­tra calo­ries you’re likely to eat.’ Got it? Do each of these 30-min work­outs once a week. Do three cir­cuits per ses­sion for each, rest­ing for 2 mins in be­tween. Fo­cus on the tar­geted area to max­imise ef­fects. Ready? Go ho ho!
