During the holiday season when you’re getting pulled in a million different directions, it’s hard to keep your health and fitness a priority. With work, holiday parties, family gatherings and gift buying, having any moment to yourself or time to exercise can be difficult.However, exercise is perfect for reducing holiday stress and for keeping off those unwanted pounds. Anytime you do exercise, it needs to be efficient, intense and fun. This allows you to bake Christmas cookies and eat them, too. Guilt free cookies, who would have thought?

You get the picture. I struggle with some of the very same things you do. But I make up for this by1. 80/20 rule. 80% good. 20% not so good.2. Training with intensity and using my whole body.3.
As we get on in years we start to lose the ability to do things quickly (power) . We lose power faster(up to 50%) than we lose our strength. But fear not.
