I’m sure that many of you feel tight on time this week. For those who celebrate, it’s the week before Christmas. My brain is definitely focused on trying to finish up my last-minute shopping, planning what I need to bake and cook or next week, and wrapping gifts.

Unfortunately, it’s common to let fitness take a back seat during this time of year. I urge you not to get into the “I’ll just start in January” mindset even though that might be the easy thing to do. Don’t be one of those people who puts things off until the New Year. It’s not the best use of your time! Take advantage of TODAY. You’ll be that much closer to your goals, and you’ll be less likely to suffer burnout/injury that many New Year’s fitness resolutions come with.

The other day I didn’t have much time to squeeze in a strength workout, so I put together this quick little 30 minute blast. I hope that if you are tight on time this week you’ll give it a whirl. Thirty minutes isn’t much (just skip watching one television show?), and it sure beats zero minutes!

5x3 Holiday Time Saver Workout

I used heavier weight for this workout and really felt the burn. My shoulders were very sore yesterday from this. Hope you love it!

How are you squeezing fitness into the busy season?
