Work Up to 2014 Fitness Challenge

‘Twas one week before Christmas and all over the place were candies and cookies and treats by the case. “They’re so hard to resist,” I said to myself, “I must pump up my workouts before becoming a chubby ol’ elf.”

Sound familiar? Well, never fear, I have just the thing to burn some extra calories so that you start 2014 off right!

Here’s the challenge: Each day, between now and January 1st, add the following moves to your current routine (or if you don’t have a routine, use this one to jump start your fitness goals). It’s a take on “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Do exercise #1 on Day 1 (tomorrow…or today if you can’t wait to get started), and then exercise #1 and #2 on day two and then exercise #1, #2 and #3 on day three…you get the point. So by New Year’s Day, you will celebrate the beginning of 2014 by doing all 14 exercises (approximately 15 with minimal rest). 


Day #1. 100 Jumping Jacks
Day #2. 12 Push Ups
Day #3. 3 Burpees
Day #4. 14 Tricep Dips
Day #5. 15 Jump Squats
Day #6. 60 lunges (30 each side)
Day #7. 70 second plank
Day #8. 80 hip ups (40 each leg)
Day #9. 90 seconds of bicycle crunches
Day #10. 100 second wall sit
Day #12.  12 Plank Switches (12 each side)
Day #13. 13 Squats
Day #14. 14 Burpees
