20 Minute Get-You-Through-The-Holidays Workout

Time is tight this month.  Fitness-wise, the key is to maintain.  Even ten to twenty minutes makes a difference, as long as you make all of the those minutes count.  Too wet and icy for a run?  All you need to do is dust off that treadmill/stationary bike/elliptical, and get moving.  I know, I know…You’re utterly bored with your treadmill/stationary bike/elliptical.  Don’t worry, this interval workout breaks it up a little and keeps things exciting.  You’ll be finished before you know it!

I’m going to use the stationary bike in this workout, but you use whatever you have at home.  At the bottom are photos of a couple of the moves.
