12 Days of Christmas Workout

Posted by:

Holidays can provide fun themes for workout styles, and we took full advantage of the holiday season at bootcamp last week!

The inspiration for last week’s bootcamp workout came from the song “12 Days of Christmas.” A special thanks to my friend Scott Colby, The Abs Expert, for posting his own great “12 Days” workout here and giving me the idea for the format!

When you do the workout, it follows the same format as the song: each time you go through a “round,” the workout becomes longer.  By the end, you’re doing all 12 exercises back to back.  This is a timed workout, so the key is to perform as much of the workout as possible before time is up.  Keep form good, always do full range of motion, rest when you want to, and perform a full-body warm-up and cool-down at the beginning and end of the workout. The goal is to get to the end before 15 minutes are up!
