Ice skating is more than just a favorite winter pastime -- The Doctors share how a skating-inspired workout can help you build muscle and work the cardiovascular system. 

If you don't skate or live somewhere without cold temperatures, Dr. Ian Smith says you can still benefit from a workout related to ice skating with a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) exercise routine.

This workout can be easily done in your home and does not require any machines or equipment. The routine mimics how a speed skater moves. While standing, bend your legs slightly and place one leg behind your other leg and the opposite arm moves forward across your chest, and repeat the motion (see Dr. Ian demonstrate the routine!).

He says to do the routine for 35 seconds and then rest for 35 seconds for a total of 7 minutes. Dr. Ian explains this type of exercise when done every other day will help to build muscle and also rev up the cardiovascular system.

Dr. Ian says if you can commit to a regular HIIT routine you're bound to see results.
