The Twelve Days of Christmas is a workout that every bootcamp should do around this time of year. Thanks Jamie for this rendition!
Countdown To The Holidays
This is a great way to get into the holiday spirit.
It is based on the infamous song, “The 12 Days of Christmas”, where participants have various exercises performed as a build.
How to: Perform #1, then #2 & 1, then #3, 2, 1, then #4, 3, 2, 1, etc.
It seems easy as it begins but gets more and more challenging! Total time is approx. 30 minutes not including warm up and cool down!
|#1||One minute plank|
|#2||2 tuck jumps (jump up, knees to chest)|
|#3||3 side raises w/ heavy weights|
|#4||4 overhead presses w/ heavy weights|
|#6||6 Full situps with resistance|
|#7||7 Tricep push ups|
|#8||8 jump squats|
|#9||9 forearm plank jacks|
|#10||10 alternating jump lunges (both sides = 1)|
|#11||11 marine push ups|
|#12||12 power jacks|
