You always feel like a rockstar after a sweat sesh, but committing to your usual HIIT class when you’ve got white elephant gifts to find and peppermint lattes to drink is a tall order.

We have just the thing to save your holiday schedule: two new episodes of Sweat Series, our quickie videos with Athleta featuring workouts short in length but big on impact.

Starring Akin’s Army trainer Bree Branker and In The Flow yogi Melissa Wood (and their IRL sweat sisters), the buzzy episodes are basically a master class in the power of snappy-but-effective routines and female friendship.

First up is Branker and her killer five-minute arms and abs method (serious time-crunch hack alert). Because even though it should, shopping doesn’t actually count as a workout.

Watch the video now (and keep it bookmarked for your busiest days this holiday season).
