Holiday Survival: Make More of Your Workouts

Extra calories can sneak into our day without us realizing it, especially during the holiday season, but the good news is we can sneak in additional exercise, too. I know that working out might drop a few notches on your priority list this time of year, so make more of your regular routine when you do make it to the gym.

Add a couple of extra sprints into your interval workouts, and extend the time you usually spend doing your favorite form of cardio by five or 10 minutes so you have enough recovery time between sprints. Pushing yourself harder than usual will challenge your fitness and help you burn more calories.

You may find yourself going into post-holiday workouts with a whole new attitude from pushing yourself through those sweaty December sprints. Not only will you survive the holidays more successfully, but the slight change in intensity might just give you a head start on your New Year's fitness resolutions.

i've been trying to figure out how i can get a few extra workouts in there - for me - i go to the gym during lunch every day and every morning i have it set in my head that i'm going to get up early to go work out but with the cold and rainy weather - it's just not in me to do it. i think that i will be adding some type of 'sprint' to my workout though since you guys always say that it's a tried and true way to lose those extra lbs/inches.
