‘Tis the season of family gatherings, office parties and out-of-town guests. Add those to the requisite baking, shopping and decorating and it’s no wonder it’s difficult to make time for everything. Women at Green Mountain often tell us they have a lot of anxiety around making self care a priority during the holidays. First, we want to remind everyone to cut yourselves some slack – only Santa Claus can do it all in a day!
It’s a great time of year to keep in mind a mantra that LynnAnn Covell, our senior fitness specialist, always tells us: something is better than nothing. If you can’t make it to the gym on time — take a short walk instead. If the thought of finishing a strength training routine overwhelms you — try fitting something in at the office. You don’t even have to leave your desk!
In today’s fitness video, LynnAnn demonstrates several easy upper body moves for the biceps, triceps, shoulders and abs using just a desk or table. These are perfect for squeezing in during a conference call or a 5-minute break and you can still make it to your next event on time.
