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!
How did you earn your Christmas dinners?
