Get a Head Start on Your 2019 Fitness Goals With This 20-Minute Strengthening Workout
There's nothing wrong with taking time to yourself and skipping a workout or two. If you would describe your holiday season as "doing the most" and are ready to get back into a fitness routine, ease your way into it with this simple strengthening workout.
This total-body workout takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, and it can be done anywhere — great for avoiding the gym mayhem. Do it solo or grab a friend to join you.
Don't forget to warm up before starting the workout. You'll perform this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll take little to no rest in between each exercise. Once you've completed all five exercises, take 90 seconds of rest and then repeat it for a total of five rounds.
