The 'Son of a Nutcracker' Workout

 

So it’s Christmas this Monday and if you’re anything like us your Christmas Eve is going to be a marathon of Christmas films, mince pies and mulled wine
(yes we know how to party this festive season).

So we’ve picked out favourite Christmas film and made it into a work out….drum roll please… we’ve chosen Elf (purely because he says ‘Cotton-headed ninny-muggins’ I mean that’s reason enough right?)

So, if you’re watching Elf here’s a little something you can do:

Whenever you hear “Buddy” or “Elf” 
Hold a plank for 40 seconds

Each time Buddy eats something naughty
(you'll be doing a ton of these in the Spaghetti breakfast scene!) 

Do 30 Lunges

Each time the Naughty or Nice List is mentioned
Do 20 burpee’s

Each time Buddy screams “SANTA!”
(extra brownie points if you also scream Santa)

Do 20 Jump Squats

Whenever Buddy sings
Do 30 Mountain Climbers

When Buddy breaks something
Do 10 Push-ups

When you hear the words “Christmas spirit”
(the end of the film is gonna be tough for this one!)

Do 30 crunches

And remember don’t cheat! Otherwise you’ll end up on the naughty list
(Oops that’s 20 Burpee’s! We are mean aren’t we)

Enjoy! And have an awesome Christmas folks!
