Traveling or stuck at home at some point this holiday season? Don’t worry. Your fitness doesn’t have to fly off the tracks, because we got you covered.
Below are two versions of the popular “12 Days of Christmas” workout. One requires just your own body. The other assumes you have a kettlebell or a pair of dumbbells handy. In either case, both will work up quite a sweat to help keep you on your edge.
The workout goes like this:
Follow it like the song “12 Days of Christmas,” where you complete each exercise in ascending order as work your way back down the ladder during each round.
In other words, “On the 1st day of Christmas, TruFusion gave to me, one burpee; on the 2nd day of Christmas, TruFusion gave to me, 2 clapping push-ups, and 1 burpee; on the 3rd day of Christmas, TruFusion gave to me, 3 sit-ups, 2 narrow-grip push-ups, and 1 burpee; on the 4th day of Christmas, TruFusion gave to me, 4 squats, 3 sit-ups, 2 narrow-grip push-ups, and 1 burpee…and so on till you complete all the movements. So yes, you’ll do all 12 movements when you hit that last round of burpees.
- Narrow-grip or clapping push ups
- Sit-ups or V-ups
- Mountain climbers
- Split jumps
- Jumping jacks
- Russian twists or windshield wipers
- Jump squats
- Wide-grip push ups
