Free Fitness Friday: Holiday Hustle Series - Full-body Pyramid Workout #3

Fitness, WorkoutkellypuryearComment

It's the third week of December and the third week of the Holiday Hustle Series for full-body workouts that you can perform anytime and anywhere during the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season!

 Exercise #3: 60-second Plank

Exercise #3: 60-second Plank

I cannot believe that Christmas is only 1 week away! If you are like me and will be traveling to visit family for Christmas, then I have a strong feeling you will need this workout more than usual since you may not have much "down-time" or a gym to use during your Holiday travels.

In order to perform this workout, you will need at least 10 minutes, an open space to move and jump around, and a yoga mat (if you have one). Your goal is to complete 100 reps of the first exercise, then 80 reps of the second, then 60... until you work your way down to 10 reps of the 6th exercise... then you rest for 1-2 minutes and repeat the pyramid starting at 100 reps of the first exercise, then 80 reps, and so on until you reach 10 reps of the 6th exercise to complete round 2. Try to complete 1-3 rounds (with the given amount of time you have) for a calorie-blasting full-body workout that will have you feeling great and energized for the Holidays!

Here's the work out!

Round 1:

  1. 100 lateral hops (50 each side)
  2. 80 reverse "Renegades" (40 each side)
  3. 60-second plant
  4. 40 squat and side shuffle (20 each side)
  5. 20 Dolphin push-ups
  6. 10 "Buckaroos"

** Rest 1-2 minutes, then repeat (starting back at 100 "running man")

Now doesn't that look like fun!? What are you waiting for? Get hustling my friends! Have a wonderful workout and safe travels in the week ahead. Happy Holidays!!
