The Twelve Days of Christmas Workout

On the first day of Christmas my trainer gave to me…

Are you singing the song in your head yet? Good, because that’s exactly how this workout works!

Do the First Day exercise (1 Star Jump).  Do the Second Day, AND First Day exercises (2 Side Lunges, 1 Star Jump).  Do the Third Day, Second Day and First Day exercises (3 Walk Out Planks, 2 Side Lunges, 1 Star Jump)…etc. Getting the hang of it?  Do the Twelfth Day round twice!

Put on your favorite Christmas music, diffuse some Christmas Spirit, rub on a few drops of en-r-gee, and add a drop of peppermint to your water!  Get ready to sweat! (Remember to take breaks when needed throughout the workout.)
