12 Day’s Of “Yippee ki yay” Christmas Workout

Xmas is almost here and the food is joyful, as is a little indulgence over the festive season. 

Don’t deprive yourself this year, but don’t slip into a sedentary slump on the sofa and undo all your training you have worked so hard for.

Whether you are at home, on a work trip, or at the gym, this 12 days of “Yippee ki yay” Christmas workout is designed to be done anywhere, with zero equipment necessary. 

They are all functional bodyweight exercises, but if you want to crank up the effort a notch, grab some dumbbells or kettlebells (or jingle bells) and incorporate them into your workout. 

This 12 days of “Yippee ki yay” Christmas workout is a playful way of injecting more movement into December, burning off your festive food.


Lets do this!

The 12 days of “Yippee ki yay” Christmas workout!

  • 12 Military jumps
  • 11 In and out squats
  • 10 Lunges (10 reps per leg)
  • 9 Prisoner squat & single knee tucks (both legs equal as 1)
  • 8 Tyson beast push ups
  • 7 Russian twist (both sides equals as 1)
  • 6 Bear crawl 6 steps forward and back (do this 6 times)
  • 5 Burpees with double knee tuck
