Burn calories and have fun with this Christmas workout! Have you ever exercised with a Christmas tree or a present before? 🎄 Now is your chance. Grab a Christmas tree, a present, or an ornament and enjoy the full body workout.
You can do these exercises not only on holidays but also every day.
Full body workout is great for weight loss because many muscles work during the training. So you can burn more calories at the same time.
But, consult your physician before starting any exercises to find out if you have any contraindications to exercise. Exercise according to your condition.
You can do this full body workout with a Christmas tree and a present or with just bodyweight. If you want a more intense weight loss workout, then replace the Christmas tree with regular weights.
How to do full body workout and burn calories in a sitting position?
If you want to exercise during the holidays, but you don’t want to get up from your chair, that’s not a problem. You can exercise on the chair!
Start walking in place while sitting on your chair.
You can use Christmas decorations for your full body workout.
Continue the march on the chair and move the ornament to the front and back and to the side.
Also, you can exercise your legs on the chair by flexing and bending your knees.
Straighten your knees forward alternately with one leg and the other leg.
Add movement of the arms and carry the Christmas tree decoration in front of you. Then activate the abdominal muscles by leaning back.
You need to sit in the middle of the chair to do that. 🙂
After that, you can train the lateral thigh muscles in this full body workout. Move one of your legs to one side, return to the beginning position and move the other leg to the side and take it back.
To diversify the exercise, you can add an arm movement with the Christmas tree decoration.
Practice the same way the other way round. Then perform a wider range of movement.
What are other exercises for the belly?
Touch your knee with the opposite elbow.
These are great abdominal exercises. The oblique muscles of the abdomen are working as you bring the elbow closer to the knee.
The other side works the same way.
During the exercise of full body workout, you can increase the range of motion. Thanks to it the abdominal muscles work even more intensively.
Well, there is no holiday without gifts.
Thus, a gift in this training can also be great training equipment. 😉
If you want to give yourself an amazing gift of feeling great and looking good, then join my “Beautiful Woman” program. It will help you have more energy and get the body you are happy with.
Depending on the weight of the gift, this exercise is easy or difficult.
Move the gift with your legs to the sides.
Exercises with a present allow you to activate the lower abdominal muscles. So it’s also great belly exercise.
If it’s difficult to exercise with the ornament between the feet, you can put it between the knees to have the easier exercise.
How to burn calories with Christmas chain exercises?
Let’s go back to the Christmas tree decorations.
The chain is another great ornament that you can use for exercise and the full body workout.
Move the chain up and down and add the movement of the straightened leg in the knee.
Then move the chain to one side and then to the other.
Do the same exercise for the other side.
What are great exercises in the full body workout with a present for your legs?
How about the present?
Well, if you decide to get up from the chair and diversify the full body workout…
Now we’re going to work on the thigh muscles. Put the gift on the foot and lift the leg sideways up.
The present works well here. You need to be careful not to let it fall off your leg.
Make leg movements to the side and then backward.
Remember to contract your belly muscles to not lean your back and stabilize your spine.
Only activate the thigh muscles here. The torso should be straight.
What are other funny exercises in the full body workout?
Next, you can do a balance exercise.
Lift the left leg and the right arm sideways up.
The gift works very well here because it helps to keep balance. Change the arm and leg and do the same exercise.
After that, change the movement of the arm and the leg. Move your leg inside and the gift outside. This time the leg and the arm work on the same side of the body.
These are good exercises not only for your legs but also for your belly as well. The lower abdominal muscles also work here.
Do the exercises on the other side in the same way.
What are other leg exercises in the full body workout?
Next, stand on one leg and do a circular motion of the raised leg. It can be challenging to keep balance. So focusing your mind on the exercise will help here. Thus, the brain is also working during this full body workout 😉. Not only the muscles.
If you want to do more intense exercises, you can do a squat. But, remember to bend your knees to the right angle to protect your joints.
Next, lift the left leg back and the right hand forward. Do the same exercise for the other side.
Raise one leg forward and one arm backward.
Take a big step back.
And bend your knees to the right angles.
This is the end of Christmas training. Remember to stretch the muscles at the end of your training.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
