The Workout To Burn Off Your Christmas Dinner

2 MIN READ • 6th February 2023

The festive season is the time to indulge but if you're keen to torch the calories that come with it, here's the exercises you need...

Christmas can be notoriously hard on our waistlines. In fact, the average Brit consumes a whopping 5000-7000 calories on the 25th December alone – yikes!
With this in mind, an excellent way to help offset the damage of overindulging is high-intensity training or HIIT. If you’re looking for a solution to the energy you’ve stored away, this workout from Protein World is a good way to get back on track with your training and kick start the New Year.
