12 Days of Fitmas



Start in the push up position but bend your elbows and rest your weight on your forearms. Form a straight line from your head to your feet. Keep your abs tight. Hold the position for 30 seconds

Wall Sit

Stand with your back against a wall. Slide your feet forward and your back down until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Hold for 30 seconds. If 30 seconds is too hard, do what is comfortable for you. Likewise, if it is too easy, then go longer. 

Jumping Jacks

Mountain Climbers


Lie on the ground and place your hand on the ground a little wider than shoulder width apart. Keep your body in a straight line as you push up. Bring your body back down until your arm forms a 90 degree angle. Repeat. Common mistakes are arching your back or letting it sag and letting your forehead touch while your butt stays in the air. 
Too hard? Keep your knees on the ground.


Bicycle Crunches


Lay on the ground with your arms extended behind your head. Keep your legs straight and lift them up while raising your upper body off of the floor. Reach for your toes with your hands. Squeeze your abdominal muscles as you reach for you toes. Slowly lower yourself back down to the floor and repeat.

Reverse Crunches

Side Planks

Lie on your side. Bend your supporting arm and keep the elbow below your shoulder. Your feet should be stacked. Lift your hips off the ground and hold for 10 seconds. Relax for 10 seconds then repeat.

Repeat 10 times each side.


Russian Twists

Sit with your knees bent and your feet flat. Your arms can either be raised and straight out in front of you or cupped together in front of you. Rotate your upper body to the right then left while your feet are raised off the floor. A single repetition means rotating to each side once. If this is too difficult for you, leave your feet on the ground. 

Repeat 12 times.
