So here we are, 2018. In this post-holiday winter time, it’s hard to know what to do with ourselves! It’s too cold outside, it’s too dull inside, and there’s SO much leftover brew from holiday swaps and gatherings that you’re afraid you’ll never get through it (oh, but you will).

Whether you’re sporting a keg or a 6-pack, now’s as good a time as any to start the habits you want to bring into this new year. We present a full-body workout that’s going to get your heart rate up, let you sweat out last night’s beers, and start your year off right. It’ll also help you get additional use out of those stockpiled packages of beer!

Show your body some love and after you sweat, cool down with a glass of The Love Wheat Beer for a re-up in carbs and electrolytes. Don’t forget to chase it down with some good ol’ H20!

The Workout

Decide on a number of repetitions for the following exercises and stick with it! Anywhere from 10-25 repetitions (repeating the whole circuit 3 times) will do it.

Be sure to consult your physician before beginning any exercise program.
