Christmas Day workout

My traditional Christmas Day workout this year was done to the theme of the Twelve Days of Christmas. It includes bodyweight exercises only as I do this in my nearest open space.

So we start with exercise 1for 1 rep, then do exercise 2 for 2 reps and exercise 1 for 1 rep, then 3 for 3, 2 for 2, 1 for 1 and so on – like the song! These are the exercises I chose:

  1. Squat
  2. Pistols
  3. Tricep press up
  4. Jumping lunges
  5. V-sit ups
  6. Press ups
  7. Jumping squats
  8. Supermans
  9. Divebombers
  10. Mountain climbers
  11. Burpees
  12. Tuck jumps

Merry Christmas everyone!

    For most of my adult life, working out on Christmas has been a big deal for me — and for years I took it to extremes. Not so much now; I’ve softened up at age 50.

    I like the bodyweight theme, and the 12s though. This year I ran a few hard sprints, and that was that. Sometimes it’s nice to have some down time. I would have not said that 5 years ago.

    Downtime is good! I had my downtime on boxing day but I had to keep up my christmas day tradition.
