Welcome to Day 2: Healthy for the Holidays!
Your Day 2 workout is a total-body strength-training session that uses one of my favorite pieces of portable, inexpensive gym equipment — a resistance band! If you’re traveling for the holidays, toss your band in your suitcase. This routine is tailor-made for a small space in your hotel or at home. If you don’t have a band, feel free to use dumbbells instead.
In our workout video below, we’ll focus on multimuscle moves that help keep your heart rate elevated to make the most of of this short but sweaty session. I’ll show you options throughout the workout so you can make it work for you and adjust to your current fitness level as needed.
Prefer to do your own routine? Schedule 15–20 minutes of your favorite total-body strength training, and check in with us in the comments below or on social media once you are done.
