Whether you’re busy with the holidays or stuck at home in a blizzard, at-home workouts are a great options for staying fit. There are plenty of DVDs that clock in under twenty minutes for the busy season.
Denise Austin’s Shrink Belly Fat features three 15-minute core workouts. “Cardio Abs” is a standing ab series. There’s a light cardio element to the workout. A hand weight is required. In “Athletic Abs,” Austin utilizes moves like planks, crunches, and a toned-down Turkish Get Up to tone the middle. “Classic Abs” is a floor ab series of tried-and-true moves like the bicycle, the side plank starfish, and crunches.
Don’t feel like putting on shoes? Try 10 Minute Solution: Pilates For Beginners. Like all 10 Minute Solution videos, there are five ten-minute workouts. This one features Pilates for the core, lower body, upper body, total body, and stretch led by instructor Lara Hudson. The upper body workout is a particularly workout for the triceps, and the stretch workout is very relaxing.
See…you can fit in some fitness before the end of the world (or at least before your fabulous holiday party).
