The Holiday Struggle
The holiday season is in full swing, and it’s getting harder and harder to get to the gym. How do you workout when Uncle Eddie demands 90% of your time? The best way to stay in the fitness routine is by transferring your gym expertise to an at-home workout. At KrankFIT Nashville, we’re here to keep you motivated both in our fitness center and at home. Here are some awesome exercises that you can do in the midst of your busy holiday schedule.
Hit Up A Class

There’s no better way to burn off a huge holiday feast than hitting one of our cycle or strength classes! Combine your love for cardio and power by coming to a 30/30 class – the most efficient hour of your day! Our Krank Instructors will teach you great moves to stay strong whether you’re in class or out of town for a few days in case you don’t want to slack on your workout routine.
Show Your Legs Some Love
You’re legs carry you everywhere, give them the respect they deserve. Sneak these legs move into your day to guarantee that your legs stay awesome, even in the middle of the holiday fiasco.
Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Stare straight ahead, and slowly squat down until your hips are below your knees. Then, slowly return to standing position. Repeat.
Lie on your back with your feet planted firmly on the mat. Raise your hips so that your hips, knees, and shoulders form an even line. Return to the starting position, and repeat.
Tone Up Your Arms
Tone your arms with these quick, equipment-free moves wherever you are.
Do the perfect pushup by planting your hands firmly on the mat about shoulder-width apart. Then, slowly lower your body until you’re almost touching the floor, and slowly return to starting position. Repeat.
Push-Up With Back Extension
Did you know that push-ups work your chest, shoulders, core, and triceps! Since it’s the triceps job to straighten your arms – this is one workout that really can benefit many different muscles all at once with this variation. Plank to the ground, do a back extension and then push to a plank. That way you’ll also get to work a few your back muscles too!
Reverse Arm Circles
Stand up straight with your arms extended at a 90-degree angle. Move your arms in a circular motion with your arms rolling backward.
Try these ab moves to keep a killer core!
Lie flat on your right side with legs together and slightly forward. Put your right arm on the mat and left hand behind your head. Crunch up in a V, getting up on your hip and butt. Keep your legs straight.
Side plank dips
Lie on one side with your legs extended, one foot stacked on top of the other. Lift yourself off the mat by placing your elbow on the mat directly below your shoulder. Then, dip your hips down and up.
