The Top Workout Tips To Regain Your Form & Stay Safe
Each and every year, the holidays bring people together to share drinks, food, memories, stories, and experiences. While this year might be a bit different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s certainly one thing that will most likely remain a constant staple for families all around the world – food! We all know the foods of the holiday season – they’re carby, starchy, sweet, and savory – and they taste great too! But most importantly, they certainly make it a little easier to put on a few extra pounds.
Although the holiday season only lasts for about two full months, holiday weight gain is still an impossible phenomenon to avoid for so many of us – after all, we just can’t help ourselves! So, if you’re worried about a little holiday weight gain, here are some workout tips to help you regain your form after the fun and festivities are all over – all while staying safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Avoid The Gym & Go For A Run Instead
It might be in your best interest to avoid going to the gym after the holidays this year. Remember, gym memberships always increase in the run up to New Years with so many people looking to make their New Year’s resolution come true. Instead, avoid the crowds and the indoor workout spaces and go for an outdoor run instead.
If you’re worried about the cold weather, get yourself some cold weather running gear to keep you warm and lightweight all at the same time. And of course, don’t forget a good pair of running shoes with good grip and traction to prevent slips and falls.
Now Is A Great Time To Set Up Your Home Gym
Whether it be a simple stationary cycling bike, or one of the most advanced Peloton models you can find in stock, now is a great time to set up your home gym. Pick any room in the house to do it – your basement, your garage, or that spare bedroom. Get yourself some free-form weights too, so that you can do a little cardio and a little weight training all at the same time. This will help to ensure that you can stay fit, warm, and safe by working out right in the comfort of your own home.
If cardio or weight lifting isn’t for you, then you can easily practice bodyweight and movement exercises at home. For instance, Yoga and Pilates are wonderful activities to do right from the comfort of your living room. Find a Yoga video that you like, or subscribe to your favorite YouTube Pilates channel. From there, you can practice your movements, your mindfulness, and your wellness from home.
