12 Days of Christmas WOD

Hello!  I can’t believe Christmas is here and gone already…too fast, too fast people.  I am going to do a Christmas re-cap over the next few days but first I wanted to tell you about the workout I did on Christmas Eve.

I stumbled upon it on Tina’s (from Carrots n Cake) Instagram.  Since I was going to the gym that morning and needed a WOD to do I jumped on it!  I googled 12 Days of Christmas WOD and a bunch of Crossfit gym’s websites came up.  I picked the one that I thought would be best for me.

This is how it went:

  • 1 Clean (30 Pounds)
  • 2 Hand Stand Pushups (modified this to 2 shoulder presses)
  • 3 Front Squats (30 Pounds)
  • 4 Sumo Deadlift High Pull (30 Pounds)
  • 5 Pull Ups
  • 6 Box Jumps
  • 7 Burpees
  • 8 Push Ups
  • 9 Wall Balls (10 Pounds)
  • 10 Kettle Bell Swings (15 Pounds)
  • 11 Deadlifts (30 Pounds)
  • 12 Thrusters

The concept of the workout worked just like the 12 Days of Christmas song.  Do exercise 1, then exercise 1 and 2, then 1 and 2 and 3, and so on.  It was a really tough one but so fun and so worth it!  I’m telling you, one of the best motivators I have found is knowing you are going to be enjoying yourself (and cheating).  It gives me the motivation knowing I am earning my meals!  I finished in just under 30 minutes!
