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.

The Workout

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.

  • Side elbow plank with a twist: 10 reps on each side
  • Side lunge to curtsy squat: 12 reps on each side
  • Basic push-up: 12 reps
  • Reverse lunge with a knee drive: 12 reps on each side
  • Mountain climber: 15 reps
