You thought Christmas was about lazy mornings with Bailey’s in your coffee and feasts that start at 4pm and go until 8pm? That’s one option. Orrrrr you could challenge your family to finish this in one hour and then you sit with your paper crowns and cheers to the fact that you just did 12 minutes of planking and 40 burpees. Take that, 2015!


The idea for this workout is that it’s the same pattern The Twelve Days of Christmas song. You will start with a one minute plank. And then it’s two shuttle runs and a one minute plank. Then it’s 3 push ups, two shuttle runs and a one minute plank. You get the idea. The only equipment you’ll need is a resistance band or pair of weights, some sweet tunes to keep you going and your badass burpeeing self.

If there’s anything listed you don’t understand, leave a comment and I’ll clarify. Happy planking! 🙂
