MERRY CHRISTMAS!! It's Christmas Day and the 4th 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: 3-way lunges

Exercise #3: 3-way lunges

Now, I know what you might be thinking - "It's Christmas morning! Do I really need to exercise today?" My answer for you is- YES! It is Christmas morning and all the more reason to start your day with an awesome workout to get you energized for a long-day of celebrating with your family (and to make up for the feasting all day)! Trust me, this quick full-body workout will be over before you know it and you might even be able to convince some of your loved ones to join you during this week's Holiday Hustle Series Full-body Pyramid Workout #4!

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 Jumping Jacks
  2. 80-second Wall Sit
  3. 60 3-way Lunges (10 each way, 30 each leg)
  4. 40 Plank Rockers (20 each side)
  5. 20 Reverse Burpees
  6. 10 Spiderman Push-ups (5 each side)

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