WE ALL KNOW this time of year can be challenging from a health and fitness point of view.

We will all be visiting family and friends, and may have a few too many mince pies over this festive period!

So we’ve decided to design a 12 Days of Christmas calendar with a difference.

We’ve put together easy to follow workouts to do over the next 12 days. The best way to do these is to do a good dynamic warm-up.

Once ready to start, your aim is to do as many rounds of the exercises in 20 minutes. All exercises can be done for 8-12 reps.

We know you don’t have much time during this festive period so this workout should help control weight gain without spending hours in the gym.

Here is today’s workout:

  • Curl to Press 1/2 Kneeling
  • Hip Thrust 1 leg
  • Pillar Bridge w/Abduction
  • Leg Lowering w/Band activation
  • Tate Press

The challenge will resume on Sunday, 27 December.
