Peter Batai talks to us about a workout routine you can do anywhere
Here is an efficient, high-intensity workout routine you can do anywhere (even at your in-laws’ house). Just a quick rundown on one workout – you can focus on one area – legs, arms, belly fat, abs:
We all indulge a little bit more than we should during big holidays such as Christmas. It is completely normal and let's be honest, unless you are a getting ready for a competition, there’s nothing wrong with being a bit social and enjoying life.
You can help yourself though to keep your metabolism running and not to pile on too much extra weight. As long as you are doing some form of exercise at least you will burn part of the excess calories you are taking.
You do not even have to go to the gym.
Here is a very short full body basic workout routine, which will keep you feeling less bloated, more healthy and also give you a nice feeling of satisfaction that at least some of the consumed food was put to good use!
The workout should not take longer than 15 to 20 minutes.
I would recommend doing the full routine 3 or 4 times depending or your abilities.
- 25 -50 wide stand (feet looking outwards) squats
- 25 -50 sit-ups
- 15 to 30 press-ups
- 15 -25 dips on a chair or if you are more advanced between two chairs whilst legs are parallel to the floor
- 15-20 biceps curls with a plastic shopping bag filled with minced pies and wine ...
At the end of this routine allow yourself just enough time to recover. As soon as you are not gasping for air and your pulse is normal, do it again. Do not rest between exercises.
At the very end, you might finish it with eating/drinking all the wine and mince pies at once from your "biceps bag"… and ruin everything.
