12 Days of Christmas CrossFit Style

Can’t believe this is now my 2nd 12 Days of Christmas workout. Last year I could barely move and breathe at the same time! Let’s see what I can do today and then we can take a look back at last year —

Suggested Warm Up
Kettlebell Warm-up series
3 rounds
5 right arm single arm overhead lunges
5 right arm single arm kneeling press
5 right arm kneeling windmills
5 left arm single arm overhead lunges
5 left arm single arm kneeling press
5 left arm kneeling windmills

Skill and Build Up
Kipping Pull-up Progression
10 beat swing stops
2 beat swings + 1 kip
2 beat swings + 1 kipping pull-up
2 beat swings + 1 kipping pull-up + 2 beat swings (2-1-2 drill)
link kipping pull-ups

Ok – we did an extremely quick warm-up
spiderman lunges
Turkish get-ups (I can’t really get up – so mine are just Turkish sit-ups)


With an empty barbell
5 deadlifts
4 hang power cleans
3 front squats
2 push jerks
1 thruster


“12 Days of Christmas”(V3)
Workout (45:00) for time
1 handstand hold, 0:10 (plank hold)
2 turkish get-ups (24kg/16kg) (Turkish sit-ups)
3 thruster (75lbs/55lbs) (55lbs)
4 push jerks (75lbs/55lbs) (55lbs)
5 front squats (75lbs/55lbs) (55lbs)
6 hang power cleans (75lbs/55lbs) (55lbs)
7 deadlifts (75lbs/55lbs) (55lbs)
8 pull-ups (hard ring rows)
9 burpees (these are definitely a killer and what totally slows me down!)
10 cal row
11 kettlebell swings (10lb db)
12 box jump overs (24″/20″) (never made it here….)
(like the song, complete each exercise in ascending order then work back down to 1, adding one exercise per round – total of 364 reps.)

Great workout! Last year, I had no clue how do do anything – I could barely move and breathe. This year, I made it almost all the way through day 11. Time ended when I was completing my 4 push jerks.
I probably could have finished the whole workout if I wouldn’t have used so much weight for 3,4,5,6, & 7 – I used 55lbs! I felt pretty good that I did all that I did and had that much weight on the bar!!!

Amazing what a year does… Next year’s goal is to complete the 12 Days of Christmas workout!

Merry Christmas everyone!
