Time to get F4F fit for the Holidays! We all know the song “Twelve Days of Christmas” and how catchy it is. We are going to use that song to kick your butt during the holidays and help keep you energized to battle the crowds during your shopping excursions. Time to battle stress, belly and body fat early before the New Year.
How does it work?
We reverse the song from 12 and work our way down all the way to 1. For example you will start with 12 reps of the first exercise (12 Santa Squat Kicks) “On the 12th day of Christmas my Trainer gave to me, 12 Santa Squat Kicks”.
Once 12 is complete, you start the song from the top at 12 reps again and then move on to exercise 11. Once you have finished 12 and 11, the song starts over at 12, 11 and then add exercise 10 and so on. After every new set, you must start the song over again. Doesn’t that sound fun?
To make this workout even more Challenging, try for the least amount of rest possible. When you’re done you will have completed 639 total reps and a very serious calorie and fat burning workout? No equipment is needed, it’s all about you.
