I made this very festive workout video almost 3 years ago when I discovered that a very common holiday activity actually burns calories. According to calorielab.com, one hour or “light” present wrapping can burn approximately 40 calories. Not a ton, but what if you combined it with one of the most effective compound bodyweight exercises, the squat?
The interval workout featured in the video below combines several minutes of body weight squats with several minutes of present wrapping. This workout will allow you to simultaneously finish your necessary wrapping and provide you with the ever important holiday season workout. If you’re as busy as I am during this holiday season, this may be just want St. Nick ordered.
Don’t forget to warmup and modify the workout to match your fitness level. Connect with us on social media and share pics/videos of you performing this or any weekend workout (Facebook, Instagram or Twitter). HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
