The 12 Days of Christmas Workout

by Danica on December 19, 2013

The fitness class that I attended on Sunday did a “12 Days of Christmas Workout” and I absolutely loved it.

I’m still sore from it.

And it’s Thursday!

Good stuff.

There are several “12 Days of Christmas” workouts on the internet, but I wanted to share this one – I modified it slightly from the class, just for simplistic/explanatory reasons, and I hope you feel the burn (in the best way possible) like I did!

12 Days of Christmas Workout

things to know about this workout:

  • for the weighted moves…add whatever amount is best for you!  I held two 10s, but it would’ve been tough with no added weight at all.
  • for the push-ups…I highly recommend dropping to the floor, raising your hands up just so they’re off the floor, then pushing up.  That sequence = 1 push-up.  This just ensures that you really press through – just make sure to keep your abs pulled in and your body straight!
  • for the shoulder push-ups…these are no joke.  HERE‘s a tutorial if you’re unsure of the form, just know that you don’t have to have those handles or turn you hands, as in the video.  This move is deceivingly tough!

This is a great routine for the season! And actually something I can see myself being disciplined to do. Thanks!
