December is now in full swing, which means trees have been decorated, carols are being sung, children are sipping hot cocoa, and parents are doing their best to keep up with all the craziness. With all this hullabaloo in the air, is it possible to still get in a little exercise? This month we’re giving you a challenge that uses a classic holiday song to help you stay fit. We’ve also included a cheat sheet below that includes images of each exercise to get you started.
Twelve days before Christmas start by doing a 1 minute low plank. The next do the low plank and 2 burpees. By day three you’ll be doing 3 leg lifts, 2 burpees and a 1 minute low plank. Keep following the pattern through the 12th and final day of exercises, and you’ll be able to drink eggnog and eat fruitcake with less guilt. It’s also great to do as a family, so get the kids involved!
