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!
Supplies needed: mats, dumbells.
|#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|

Awesome workout! Thanks for sharing. My boot campers were not very happy when they realized what the work out actually was all about, the 12 days of Christmas, but they endured very well. One more of these on the 12th before we break for the holidays. Merry Christmas to you!
Really tough! Didn’t think I could workout to christmas music but I loved every minute of it!!!
