Christmas is less than one week away, so there’s no better time for a sweet holiday themed workout! I used to do a similar activity with the kiddos when I taught nutrition & fitness in the schools, but this version is ramped up for all us grown-ups. It’s a high intensity workout that should challenge you, and it can be done anywhere – no equipment or weights needed.
Do the workout just like you’d sing the song…
“On the first day of Christmas, my trainer gave to me – 1 plank for 20 seconds”
“On the second day of Christmas, my trainer gave to me – 2 burpees, and 1 plank ‘til exhaustion”
“On the third day of Christmas, my trainer gave to me – 3 push-ups, 2 burpees, and 1 plank ‘til exhaustion”
And so on!
Pretty awesome, right?! Enjoy my holiday themed workout, and feel free to let me know what you thought of it.
