A Holly Jolly Workout
This workout contains several purposeful sets dedicated toward power, strength, cardio, and core drills. With each set try to be purposeful and deliberate with each rep to focus on the task at hand (i.e. in the power set, try to move explosively with each rep). Perform 5 rounds through each little circuit for the indicated reps. You will perform all the power drills as one circuit, then move onto all the strength drills as one circuit, then all the cardio drills as a circuit, and so on.
