5 Best Holiday Workouts: It’s Crunch Time


Push Ups

Many people dread push-ups or think they cannot do them, but you will surprise yourself and strengthen your abs, gluteals, biceps, and triceps in the process! If you are new to doing push-ups, you can start from your knees in a modified position, or if you are comfortable with push-ups, you can start in the high plank position, keeping your hands shoulder width apart, with a straight body, and on the balls of your feet.

Keeping your back straight and body in line, and in a controlled motion, lower your body to 4-6”” off the ground, and push back to the top position. If you cannot go that low at first, that’s OK but do as many in the optimal position as you can.
