EMMET RUSHE: ARE YOU ABLE FOR THE 12 ROUNDS OF CHRISTMAS?

first_imgBY EMMET RUSHE:It is officially the season to be jolly.All the Grinches, Scrooges and Bah Humbuggers can suck it up, because Santa Clause is coming to town! Maybe I came on too strong there, but if you aren’t enjoying the holiday season, you need to come and relieve some stress at my Rushe Fitness group training classes. Booking for January is open and places are almost gone. You know how January is, so don’t wait until it’s too late.Drop me a message through the link below and we’ll get you started.Each year, to celebrate the festive season, I have a special workout that I do with my members.I have been doing this for the last 3 years and it hasn’t failed to disappoint yet.The workout is simple and effective, and by effective I basically mean that it is a bit horrible. As it is Christmas, the workout has a Christmassy theme.If you know the 12 days of Christmas, (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?), that is the inspiration for the workout.So take a minute and have a little sing song to yourself. Get that catchy tune into your head. Maybe get Sandra from the office to join in and help you. Can Sandra sing?Oh, well maybe not then.The best part of this workout is that you don’t need much space, or any equipment, but if you have access to some and want to make it harder, you can add some in. Want to give it a try?Here we go.The workout goes like the song does (12 days of Christmas)All you need is an exercise mat.30 seconds jogging on the spot2 More Burpees3 Squat Jumps – jumping (add weight if needed)4 lunges – lunging (each leg) (add weight if needed)5 prisoner squats (add weight if needed)6 reverse lunges – lunging (each leg) (add weight if needed)7 X-body Mountain Climbers – climbing (each leg)8 Plank to Press – pressing9 Push ups – pushing10 Total Body Extensions – extending11 Jumping Jacks – jumping12 Burpees – burpingHow you do the workout is exactly like the song. Do the 1st exercise;“On the first day of Christmas, Rushe Fitness gave to me: 30 seconds jogging on the spot”Then do the 2nd exercise, then the 1st exercise.“On the second day of Christmas, Rushe Fitness gave to me: 2 more burpees and 30 seconds jogging on the spot.”Then do the 3rd exercise, then the 2nd, then the 1st.“On the 3rd day of Christmas, Rushe Fitness gave to me: 3 Squat Jumps, 2 more burpees and 30 seconds jogging on the spot.”Then 4th, 3rd, 2nd, 1st and so on until you are going from 12 all the way down to 1.“On the 4th day of Christmas, Rushe Fitness gave to me: 4 Lunges lunging, 3 squat jumps jumping, 2 more burpees and 30 seconds jogging on the spot.”You continue to work your way through the workout exactly like the sequence of the song.It sounds easy on paper, trust me, it’s not.The exercises suggested are to allow minimal equipment to be used.If you are in a training facility and have access to a load of equipment, feel free to add in different exercises to make it harder or easier or to suit your style of training.You are only limited by your imagination.If you try it out, I’d love to hear how you get on with it. Send me a message on my Rushe Fitness page through the link below and let me know how you get on with it.Santa hats and Christmas jumpers are optional.#TrainSmartFor more information, contact me through the link below.https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rushe-Fitness/120518884715118?ref=hl * Emmet is the owner and operator of Rushe FitnessEMMET RUSHE: ARE YOU ABLE FOR THE 12 ROUNDS OF CHRISTMAS? was last modified: December 13th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:emmet rushesfitness columnlast_img read more
