So, let’s dive into this workout inspired by the classic song “The 12 Days of Christmas.”

The Power of Regular Exercise

Before we jump into the workout details, let’s remind ourselves of the incredible benefits of regular exercise. Exercise has the power to:

  • Relieve stress
  • Enhance immunity
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Lower the risk of chronic diseases

Now, let’s see how you can harness these benefits in a short amount of time with the “12 Days of Fitmas Workout.”

The Format

This workout follows the format of the beloved holiday song “The 12 Days of Christmas.” It’s not only effective but also a novelty that makes it perfect for involving friends or family. Here’s how it works:

  • In each round, you add a new exercise, and you perform that exercise for the number of reps corresponding to the day in the song.
  • For instance, in round 1, you’ll do 1 jumping jack. In round 2, it’s 2 burpees plus 1 jumping jack. Round 3 consists of 3 push-ups, 2 burpees, and 1 jumping jack, and so on.
  • The final round, round 12, is the grand finale. You’ll perform the entire sequence, starting from day 12 and working your way back to day 1.

This workout is not only a great physical challenge but also a mental one. You’ll feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment when you complete it.

The 12 Days of Fitness Workout

Before diving into the workout, be sure to warm up with 5-10 minutes of light cardio (such as walking in place or using a treadmill) and some gentle stretches (leg swings, arm circles, etc.). Here’s the exercise sequence:
