Let’s make this the year that you don’t sabotage your nutrition and exercise program. With a little planning, you can still celebrate and feel good doing it. Fitting some easy and effective movement into the week is the key to keeping off the pounds, boosting energy, ensuring a stress-free holiday season.
It’s as simple as 7 and 7:
Over the next 7 days, you’ll focus on 7 compound moves. Each exercise hits multiple muscle groups so that you can boost that metabolism while toning the legs, glutes, abs, shoulders and arms, all in a short period of time. Talk about getting more bang for your buck
The holidays shouldn’t be about deprivation or stressing that you’re blowing your diet. This time of the year should be filled with joy and relaxation. So use this straightforward routine as a simple, stress-free way to stay on track while you’re enjoying your family, friends and, yes, food, too.

7 in 7 Program
- After a good warm-up, work through each exercise, 12 reps on both sides.
- Complete 1-3 minutes of the cardio alternating high knees.
- Repeat the cycle, doing each exercise again, 12 times on both sides.
- Enjoy the holiday week!
This is all well and good, but do you have any exercises modified for people with knee problems? I had a TKR and am not allowed to kneel, bend is not what it used to be, and any adaptations would be most welcome.
