12 days of Christmas Challenge!

Being the week before Christmas, here’s a Christmas themed workout drill for all of those of you who love a good challenge!

You can perform it in your own time, or get your trainer this week to run you through it and time you in your session.

If you’re feeling super competitive, post up your time and we can see who smashes the best one!

 

The workout operates like the 12 days of Christmas song. Start by just completing exercise 1 (1 rep) Then complete exercise 2 (2 reps) and then back to exercise1 (1 rep). Then exercise 3, exercise 2 and exercise 1, just like the order of the days in the song.
