Christmas of Days 12

12 Days of Christmas is a popular workout routine this time of year.  So that is what we did.  Except we spun it around and did it backwards.  Why, you ask?  More reps!  So…

  • 1 minute warning, no FNGs, disclaimer, quick prayer

Take a step back to enlarge the circle and warmup with…

  • 12x SSHs IC
  • 12x TTTs IC
  • 12x SumoSquats IC

Go grab a block and meet up under the only light shining on campus this morning.  YHC explained Christmas of Days 12 but didn’t reveal why we worked our way from 12 to 1 (instead of 1 to 12).  That came later at the COT.  We turned on some tunes by ZZ Top – our 3 wise men for today.

  • Christmas of Days 12
    • Day 12 we did… 12
    • Day 11 we did… 12, 11
    • Day 1 we did… 12,  11, … , 1

using these exercises…

Day Exercise   Christmas of Days 12   12 Days of Christmas
12 Block OHPs   144   12
11 Block Squats   121   22
10 Block Swings   100   30
9 Feet In Block BBSUs   81   36
8 Up ‘n Over Block Merkins   64   40
7 Toilet Seat Squats   49   42
6 Block Lunges   36   42
5 Block Jump Burpees   25   40
4 Elf on the Shelf   16   36
3 Incline Diamond Merkins   9   30
2 Minutes of 6″   4   22
1 Lap around PL   1   12
           
  total reps >>>   650   364

So you see working backwards is quite a few more reps.   YHC can be tricky that way.
