12 Days of Christmas – Swamp Fox Style

8 PAX emerged from the #Fartsack this morning in search of a way to #GetBetter. YHC is a huge Star Wars fan and loves a good trilogy so why not celebrate this Christmas Eve with the third installment of the 12 Days of Christmas workout. Once the proverbial whistle blew at 5:30 AM, the PAX got better as all embarked upon 45 minutes of suck that was designed to keep the PAX moving and help all #GetBetter with the sharpening of some iron.

Conditions – 54 degrees and cloudy (Perfect Burpee Weather)

12 Days of Christmas

1st day – 1 lap around the parking lot island

2nd day – 2 dozen Merkins

3rd day – 3 four count imperial walkers (IC)

4th day – 4 Jungle Boi Squats

5th day – 5 BURPEES PLEASE

6th day – 6 inches for 30 seconds

7th day – 7 four count Russian Twists (IC)

8th day – 8 jump squats

9th day – 9 LBCs (IC)

10th day – 10 stationary lunges (5 each leg, 10 total)

11th day – 11 Mountain Climbers (each leg, 22 total)

12th day – 12 Monkey Humpers (IC)

The workout follows the same patter as the song.  First day, just a lap. Second day, 2 dozen merkins and a lap.  Third day 3 imperial walkers, 2 dozen merkins, and a lap.  So, the counts start to build, especially the merkin/burpee exercises.

  • Honored to have Q at #SwampFox this AM.  #Hammer PAX will be glad to know that YHC got the order of exercises correct this morning, and #Thunder PAX will be glad to know that YHC kept the singing at a minimum. 
  • With Burpees and Merkins, PAX did a total of 304 Merkins.  Couple that with 1.3 miles of running, as well as some ab work, and we #PushedTheRock this AM. 
  • #LarryBirds were not in short supply this morning as Sheets, Cesspool, and Fountainhead did their thing.
