LA PETITE BLOG APPROVED TIPS ON STAYING FIT DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON
Start slowly—but make it count. Don't overdo it your workouts, aim to keep your heart rate between 65 and 85 percent of your maximum beats-per-minute—that's a clever way to maximize your workout without killing yourself.
Progress quickly —Vary your speed and intensity every few minutes while doing cardio. It will help you see results within a couple of weeks.
Keep it up— It may seem counter intuitive, but soreness doesn't mean stop. Working out will increase blood flow to the sore areas, which will help flush the build-up of lactic acid and other toxins from the muscle tissue, the result is a higher tolerance to fatigue and muscle soreness, as well as faster recovery.
