Ooh, look at the date. 12/12/12. Alexandra Burke, surely the greatest philosopher of our age, gave us all something to think about when she posted on her Twitter today that this will be the last repeating date of our lifetime.
Anyway, on this very cold and rather frosty evening, I decided to pay homage to the visually-pleasing numerical date by designing a 12-themed home conditioning circuit. I have a few items of kit at home (shout out to Wolverson Fitness), including kettlebells, a Bulgarian bag (my new favourite), a weighted vest, a wall ball and a slam ball.
This is how it went down:
Set a timer for 12 minutes
Do 12 reps of the following 12 exercises (do you see what I did there?). Rest after each circuit.
Repeat as many times as possible until the 12 minutes is up.
1 KB swings (two handed)
2 KB swings (right hand)
3 KB swings (left hand)
4 Bulgarian bag spins (I think that’s what they’re called) left
5 Bulgarian bag spins right
6 Bulgarian bag cleans
7 goblet squat
8 squat jumps
9 KB cleans (right hand)
10 KB cleans (left hand)
12 press ups
Did you mark 12/12/12 by doing a 12-inspired workout? Tell me all about it thankyouplease!
Oh, and… only 12 sleeps til Christmas-Eve-eve!
