Planning to wow this New Year's Eve? Don't skip your workouts this week. We've got a seven-day plan that incorporates short workouts that pack a punch in the calorie-burning department. Even if you're busy, you can fit these workouts in — and burn over 2,000 calories in the process. All calculations are based on a 130-pound woman unless otherwise noted.
Monday: Start out your week with half an hour of energizing cardio. Jogging at five mph will burn 216 calories in 30 minutes.
Tuesday: If you're celebrating Christmas, you may be pressed for time today. Instead of skipping your workout, take a break with one of our 10-minute total-body workouts (try this 10-minute no-equipment full-body workout) and burn 72 calories.
Wednesday: Go for another 30-minute jog at five mph and burn another 216 calories.
Thursday: Time to strength train. Strengthening and toning your muscles will help you look your best. Thirty minutes of strength training will burn 216 calories and work your entire body. Here are three 10-minute workouts to try:
- Jeanette Jenkins's belly-fat-blasting workout
- Tony Horton's P90X workout
