12 Days Challenge – Day 5


OK kids, you had a nice recovery day yesterday. Now it’s time to get back to work. It’s only 10 minutes of work plus a warm-up. I know you can do it.

Warm-up with 5-10 minutes of light cardio (e.g. – jogging, walking, stair climbing, cycling at low resistance and speed).



Do 10 rounds of 30 seconds of sprinting followed by 30 seconds of rest. Use your cardio activity of choice for your sprints.

Cooldown by walking for 2-3 minutes.

    How do I win my brownie points once I’ve completed the task? And since I’m joining late, do I get credit for previous workouts? Not that I’m competitive or anything…..

      LOL! Too funny, Beth!

      You can send an email to me and/or you may post to the blog. You’ll start receiving the daily emails tomorrow, and you may reply with “done” or put the workout/activity you did in the body of the email. Let me know what your workouts/activities were from Monday through Wednesday so you can get credit. You’ll also get credit for last night’s kettlebell class.

    Hi, i just signed up for the challenge because even though I’ve been doing bootcamp regularly, i have missed a few classes due to my obcene work schedule right before the winter break. Also, once the winter break starts on December 21st, I will be away and not able to attend fitness classes, so I wanted something to motivate me to work out on my own. I am saving the workouts you posted for those days when I am away.

    So far, since December 9th I have completed the following workouts:

    Did boot camp on Monday, December 9th 6 AM
    Did Ballet class on Wednesday, Dec 11th from 5:30-6:45 PM.
    Did boot camp on Friday, December 13, 6 AM.
    Did Boot camp on Saturday, December 14 at 8:30 AM.
