Fitness gains and festive fun needn’t be mutually exclusive. Balance out pigs in blankets and boozy chocs with some body-weight moves you can do anywhere. Even in your old box room
Four sessions to do anywhere – parents’ box room included
There’s nothing like the festive season to put a big dent in your meticulously planned fitness routine. A diary as stuffed as a Christmas turkey (page 45 for more on that) isn’t exactly conducive to working out. Added to that, chances are you’ll spend some of the holiday season miles away from your usual studio, group class or gym floor. The solution? Quick body-weight workouts that allow you to get a lot done in a short burst of time – because, let’s face it, a December where you spend every day in the gym does not happy memories make. So, we tapped PT Nick Tumminello to create a packable workout plan that will streamline your sweat sessions. First, you’ll get eight moves for strengthening the body’s main muscle groups sans equipment – carefully designed to be doable even in the tightest of spaces. Then you’ll find four simple ways to mix and match them to create the perfect workout, any time, anywhere. Trust us, those mince pies will taste even sweeter afterwards.
