Even the toughest athletes can fall victim to the time-consuming demands of the holiday season – parties, family reunions, and travel – but that does not mean your body has to suffer. Instead of doing six hard workouts a week, you should allow yourself a season's play by reducing it to four. If you implement a program that focuses heavily on complex movements, you'll make up for the lost days, and that's what this month is all about: building muscle when time permits, without missing the things that really matter ,
HOW IT WORKS
You will be training four days a week, but your two toughest and longest workouts will take place on the days you can install them. Your hardest workout should take place when you are rested and ready and have the most free time on your busy vacation schedule. The faster and easier routines will easily fit into a busy day. You can play cardio on your days off, or just take a break when time is short. To further customize the program, we have included alternative exercises that you can choose from, depending on how you feel. Get ready to win with Santa's sleigh.
