15 minute full body holiday workouts for the 50+ - 4/6 - Interval Training

15 minute full body holiday workouts for the 50+
Exercise Program 4 of 6- Interval Training

With the holidays fast approaching life can start to feel busy as well as very social with holiday dinners and drinks.  A few Vintage Fitness personal training clients here in Toronto have asked me to create a series of 15 minute full body holiday workouts that they can do even on busy days.  This is the fourth of six workouts which will take you right until Christmas Day.

This week I use interval training, alternating between cardiovascular exercise which should get your heart rate up with strength training using your body weight as resistance. You will get a great workout in no time.
