CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - We're now well into January and all of the treats of the holidays should be a distant memory.
Unfortunately many of us ate enough that those holiday pounds don't seem to want to disappear.
Personal trainers Geoff and Holly Graue with H & G Personal Training visited WBTV News Saturday Morning with some workout advice, and a sample training schedule that might help you get back to where you want to be.
Their sample training schedule is below:
1. The best and most efficient types of workouts are short and intense. Don't look at fitting in a training session as something you have to allocate 60-90 minutes for. Set aside 20 minutes for a training session.
2. Be creative and don't think you need a gym or any type of equipment to make this work. An open space, backyard, playground, or basement will work just fine.
3. This doesn't have to be an everyday thing. Find three 20-minute time frames a week, and you'll find yourself coasting through the holidays without having to drop the extra 15 you picked up come January.
Sample Holiday Training Schedule
Keep your workouts to 20 minutes, three times a week, by planning your exercises for each of the following five categories, and time each section. Keeping pressure on yourself to hustle the whole time will keep these workouts short and they'll also be more beneficial in terms of increasing your metabolic rate.
