We know you're busy too, so we asked Harley to create a holiday time-saver workout for FitSugar readers. His 30-minute workout gets your heart rate up and works your legs and abs — two areas I always want to tone. To check out his workout keep reading.
Harley says, "Do all this workout without taking any rests . . . Look at it as very 5-Factor with (1) Cardio Warmup (2) Lunges (3) Deadlifts (4) Double Crunch (5) Cardio cool down. 5 Phases!!!"
