DO YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE TRAINING OVER THE HOLIDAY PERIOD?

End of year celebrations are hardly conducive to training. Time flies by, there's a succession of large meals and a lot of time spent with family members so it's difficult to find an appropriate time to fit in a workout. If you want to continue your training sessions, the best way is to squeeze in an express workout during off-peak hours: the best slot is still early in the morning when everyone is asleep and recovering from the festivities. Choose a short session, either at the gym or at home, to keep up the momentum.

 

Finding time

If you want to continue your training sessions, the best way of doing so is to squeeze in an express workout during off-peak hours: the best slot is still early in the morning when everyone is asleep and recovering from the festivities.

 

In the gym

If you can, go back to your gym to train. 30 minutes of exercise is enough to ensure you don't get out of the habit. Choose a light workout which doesn't tire you out - jogging or strengthening exercises, using your body weight - so you can start each day full of vim and vigour.

 

At home

And if you can't manage to slip away? Well, there's no point giving up; your beloved gym will still be there after the holiday period. In the meantime: train at home! A short, intensive session will do the job. Choose effective fitness accessories, such as: skipping rope or dumbbells. Step out into your garden for some fresh air: a few short paces, sprints or plyometrics will get you back on your feet. Take advantage of this opportunity to improve your cardio system and explosive muscle speed.

 

Vary your sessions

The Christmas period is a good opportunity to review the content of your exercise sessions and work on other aspects that we tend to ignore: flexibility or neglected muscle groups. Try out circuit training and assess the benefits for your stamina.

 

Treat yourself to a break

Why stop? Quite simply because your body needs it! This rest period will give your body time to repair its various systems: your muscles, joints and nervous systems. It's the ideal time to have a break if you've been working hard. Take advantage of this period to make time for yourself and relieve the stress accumulated over the year. Make time for some relaxation, which is essential for the body, and review events from the past year. Re-evaluate your objectives, based on your training results. Plan your training sessions and devise your new program for 2015! You'll approach the new year with renewed vigour and more energy.
