Treat yourself to health and well-being for 12 days.
On Christmas Day I worked on my Bo-Dy! Cheesy, but hey, it had to rhyme. Every year you make a conscious effort to give everyone you know at least one special gift. And every year you most likely never get it yourself something. This is the perfect time to throw yourself (or rather your health) off balance! The best gift you can give yourself won’t cost you a penny! While this 12 Days of Fitness: Total Body Workout Challenge should be considered a gift, it is actually 12 separate gifts to celebrate and energize you during the last days of the holiday madness!
12 Days of Fitness: The Total Body Workout Challenge
The holiday season brings perspective, allows us to spend time with loved ones, share love through giving and enjoy meals we have dreamed of all year round. It’s usually about everyone but you because the subject is there. So take some healthy time to yourself along with the hunt for the perfect gifts, long work days and long lines.
This holiday workout challenge is a fun mix of daily workouts to keep your spirits high and avoid feeling drained from the sometimes stressful holiday season. This is the time of year to pamper yourself and eat whatever you want. If you stick to an exercise routine, you can give in to those food cravings without carrying a few extra weights!
The perfect combination of full body exercises
Below is the 12 day full body workout challenge. It is not realistic that every day is a full body workout, so the workouts are a bit spread out and varied. This gives each muscle group some rest before being blasted with another workout.
Most workouts target multiple muscle groups, but there are some single body routines as well. This is just another way to give your muscles more rest so you can continue to face the challenge of full body exercise.
All training sessions last less than 30 minutes. This gives you plenty of time to still be part of the holiday season madness without spending hours exercising. All routines are HIIT too. This gives you quick work, minimal rest, and tremendous results.
For this challenge, you will need a yoga mat, a range of light to heavy weights (5 to 20 pounds), a chair, and an interval timer.
