Tis the Season for Holiday Parties, endless hours of present shopping and wrapping, families being together and lots and lots of cookies and treats. It’s not hard to pack on those pounds this time of year. With all of this fun and excitement we run out of time to go to the gym and get a good workout in. Some gyms aren’t even open during the Holidays. With limited time and resources how can you get in a proper fat-burning workout in? I’ve developed an at home, simple workout that only takes 30-minutes. All you need is an empty space and a jump rope. This circuit is easy enough to do first thing in the morning before all the festivities begin!

This circuit is easy enough to do first thing in the morning before all the festivities begin!

If you’re unsure what certain workouts are then here’s a breakdown.

  • Jumping Jacks are pretty easy, just jump up and down opening your arms and legs like a star then jump again pulling your arms and legs in.
  • Jump Rope is simple, spin the jump rope in a circle above your head to under your feet, jumping over the rope.
  • Tuck Jumps are when you bend down and jump up tucking your knees to your chest and landing back on your feet.
  • High Knees is when you jog in place but raise each knee up while jogging.
  • Squats are awesome, standing with your feet firmly spread slightly apart you dip your hips down and then back up.
  • Mountain Climbers which is when you get on your hands and knees, pull your feet back so your legs are diagonal knees in the air and you climb. Kick your knee up like your climbing the stairs alternating each leg.
  • Push-ups, which are very simple, get in the same stance as the mountain climber but instead of using your legs, you are using your arms. Bending your arms up and down raise your head and body upwards then back down.
