Let’s try something different this year. I am presenting you and your loved ones a fun 12 Days of Christmas themed workout.
Begin by completing the first exercise one time. Next, complete two repetitions of the second exercise followed by the first exercise again. Continue by completing the three repetitions of the third exercise, two repetitions of the second exercise, and a single repetition of the first.
With each new round, you’ll add one exercise and then work your way back down to the first.
So, that means the final round will look like: 12 times than 11 times, then 10, then 9, etc., until you work your way backward to the first exercise.
Try not to rest, just pause take a breath and continue on. Good luck!!!
- 30-second elbow plank
- Mountain climbers
- Reverse lunges
- Twisting crunches
- Jump squats
- Hand-release pushups
- High knees
- Tricep dips
- Reverse crunches
I know this is going to look pretty simple in the beginning, but once you start working your way up and down that ladder it gets quite intense.
Remember to use proper form, and always modify exercises you are unable to complete safely. They all may be bodyweight exercises, but we always need to take fitness levels into consideration.
To stay motivated, use the song and try to sing along as you complete the workout.
Nothing says Merry Christmas like a fun Christmas workout!
