Staying fit during the holiday season is such a big riddle with a myriad of events from reunions to parties and get together. Then there’s the unending traffic and the last minute shopping for Christmas Gifts. So where do you squeeze in the fitness lifestyle you’ve grown to love and lived by the past 11 months. #Neverstop working out, it may not be the same volume or the same distance but make it matter. I myself have been down to 2-3 per week from the usual 6 workouts a week but I try not to miss my long run and at least go for one or two decent short ones on weekdays. Getting back into shape is difficult after those zero workout weeks. Your timing is off. Your muscle memory is out of sync and your endurance takes a dive. Consistency is really important in maintaining the proper rhythm and conditioning for the rigors of a sporty lifestyle. What can you do to stay in shape even as you give more time to the season of giving? The hard-working yurbuds ambassadors share some effective tips.
Coach Ani de Leon-Brown: Run 1 hour or bike 1.5hrs early in the morning to start the day right. At the party buffet pick a little bit of your favorite food items so you at least get to taste them and there’s no need to pile on a whole lot of food cause your cravings are satisfied already.
Coach Andy Leuterio: Set a minimum number of workouts for the week. If you can’t maintain your normal daily frequency, at least stick with a handful of sessions. Just don’t let an entire week go by without a single workout or you’ll have a hard time getting back on track. For triathletes, go for time saving double- or triple-workouts so you maintain muscle memory. Keep the intensity fairly high so you burn more calories and work more muscle fibers. As for food, I’d recommend loading more greens and proteins so you feel more full instead of piling your plate with carbs.
Elite triathlete Nikko Huelgas: Book yourself for a race around January. Or in my case, always think about your first race of the year when you wake up. Try to make sure that it can be your best race in the year. You might as well start now. It’s getting closer! Besides, food tastes more delicious and guilt-free after a hard workout!
“Kuya Kim” Atienza: It’s okay to eat all the Christmas stuff, but eat in moderation. Allow yourself to gain just 5 pounds so it’s less painful coming back to train for the coming race season.
Effective time management and smart eating habits will let you stay in good shape even when the party season goes into high gear! And with yurbuds to keep you company during workouts you’ll be sure to #neverstop having a blast!
Have fun during the Christmas Season.
