12 Days of Christmas Song Workout
A Holiday WOD Inspired by the Song
Have you been indulging a little too much when it comes to the sugar cookies and egg nog? Perhaps you have been enjoying the holiday cheer a little too much? The holidays are time to see friends and enjoy great friends and to be be merry, but sometimes your workout routine suffers during the holidays. Here is a surefire way to kickstart your healthy habits again and to perhaps even feel less like a bowl full of jelly over the holidays.
This is a 12 Days of Christmas Song Workout! Here is how it works:
You start with day 1, and sing it like the song. On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…. and then you do One twenty second plank hold..
Next would be : On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me. Two pull-ups, and One twenty second plank hold. This holiday song workout is a ladder of exercises and you keep on adding one more exercise to the mix until you get to 12 days, and then you work your way all the way back to day one. I think you will find that this metabolic conditioning type workout will be a hit with the CrossFit type crowds at the gym, due to it’s high rep nature. Feel free to mix up the types of workouts depending on what you have for equipment. Remember than when doing this 12 days of Christmas workout, you will do the number of reps that correspond to the day. For example in this workout you will do 7 push-ups, 6 tuck jumps, 5 Russian kettlebell swings.. and on and on until you get all the way to day 12 and back down to one like the song.
I tried this today with some others, and the combos worked out well.
