Christmas Around The Corner
This is a 12 days of Christmas workout. The workout is designed the same pattern as the 12 days of Christmas song. On the first round of the workout you will only perform exercise 1 for 1 reps. In the second round through the workout you will perform exercise 2 (2reps) and exercise 1 (1rep). In the 3rd round you will perform exercise 3 (3reps), exercise 2 (2reps), and exercise 1 (1rep). This pattern will continue through the workout. Every round through the workout you will add the next exercise on the list (similar to the 12 days of Christmas song). The exercise number is also the number of reps you will perform of that exercise (i.e. exercise 8 is performed as 8 reps). If an exercise has a right and left, perform the indicated reps on each side.
