Easy Workout Tips For The Holidays

Dec 13, 2010

The Rachel Kendall would like you to have a healthy holiday season so see below for some workout tips from celebrity trainer Seven Boggs.

 Get your workout in while you shop! 

 (CBS) Everybody’s extra busy this time of year.. Between shopping, cooking, and working, you’ve probably forgotten completely about — exercising.

But on “The Early Show,”celebrity trainer Seven Boggs, of Bally Total Fitness, demonstrated how to sneak in a workout without missing a beat.

Shopping bag and purse shoulder and back workout

You can actually workout while carrying your bags. The important thing is to not use your shoulders to carry them — use your hands. To get a shoulder and back workout, distribute the weight evenly between both hands. To get a shoulder workout, hold your shopping bags to your sides with your arms fully extended as you walk. The further the bags are from your body, the more your shoulder muscles engage.

To work out your biceps, carry your bags with your arms bent at a 90 degree angle. You can extend your arms to your thighs then bend again, doing reps. Or you can just walk with your distributed bags with your arms constantly bent at a ninety degree angle.

Kitchen workout

Refrigerator squats: You can do a RISING squat if you stack your refrigerator from the bottom shelf up. It’s a rising squat, as you stack each shelf. You can get a whole body workout using a large can. Squeeze the can between your thighs, then lift the can over your head.

Stair Leg workout

It’s important to take two steps at a time, as well as to use a heel-toe action, so you engage the entire foot and hamstring to maximize your burn.

Standing in lines at the mall!

Squeeze your glutes while rolling on the balls of your feet.

Walking in mall

The key: speed-walking!
