New York (PRWEB) January 08, 2013
O, joyful, happy holidays! The time of the year when we hang out with the family, spend time with our friends, share gifts, enjoy a festive, relaxing atmosphere... and eat tons of delicious, yet unhealthy food. So the question is, how to avoid gaining weight while still staying warm and cozy at home?
In order to help you burn down the calories, and have a happy and healthy festive season, Manhattan Orthopaedic Care physician, Dr. Armin Tehrany, who serves on the Board of Directors for the New York State Society of Orthopeadic Surgeons, prepared a simple infographic with five fantastic home exercises, suitable for both the younger and older people who spend more time at home during the holiday season.
These exercises will help you burn out that stubborn holiday fat, while still having tons of fun.
"Holidays always entail good times with friends and family, and of course, a lot of eating and drinking. On top of that, the cold weather outside makes it very hard to go walking, running or just simply going to the gym. To fight this laziness, we've come up with few simple tips that can help you stay fit during this joyful period. Keeping the body in motion is the easiest way to burn calories." - says Dr. Armin Tehrany, a certified physician who treats all types of orthopedic conditions.
Most important of all, you will have to find the motivation to set up a home workout regime.
Here are the 5 tips:
1. Take the stairs
Walk up and down the home stairs to warm-up for leg squats, push-ups, and leg raises.
2. Throw a dance party
Dancing is a great cardio exercise - it's fun, burns lots of calories, and keeps you fit. Don't be shy if you're not that great at it. Grab a few friends, play some music and improvise.
3. Try Martial Arts
If you still feel like dancing isn't quite your thing, try martial arts. Do some Kung fu, Taekwondo or Tai Chi.
4. Do some Yoga
Yoga can be a profound experience, both physically and spiritually.
5. Play Games
Get yourself a Nintendo WII or Microsoft Kinect - both have motion sensing sports games that are a perfect combination of fun and healthy!
