6 Minute Christmas Baking BURN!

Sometimes there are not enough hours in the day to get a workout in and especially at this busy time of year it can be difficult to burn off as many calories as you take in. Here is a quick routine that you can do in your living room on those days where the gym didn't quite make the schedule:

Complete 3 Rounds of the following 5 exercises at 20 seconds each:

1)High Knees-
Running on the spot work to bring your knees up as high as possible.
2)Burpees- Start standing and bring your hands down to the floor, kick both feet out behind you and then quickly back in. From that crouched position bring your hands up over-head and jump as high as you can. Repeat.
3)Split jump- Start with your left foot forward and right foot behind you, bend both knees so that your back right knee almost touches the floor- spring up and switch your legs as you land so that the right foot comes to the front and the left goes behind. Repeat.
4)Push-ups- Ensure you come down far enough so that your arms bend to a 90' angle. Complete as many as you can either on your toes or on your knees.
5)Jack-knife sit-ups- Lay down on the floor with your legs straight and your arms behind your head. Bring shoulders and arms off the ground and at the same time lift your legs in the air so that you can touch your feet. Repeat.
