12 WODs of Christmas

It’s that time of year again! Perpetua’s 12 WODs of Xmas runs Monday 8th-Friday 19th December.

Whats involved?

If you accept the challenge, you will do 12 back to back Benchmark WOD’s.  We invite you to attend class every day from the 8th-19th December. This challenge is open to absolutely everyone, all you need to do is turn up to a class, make sure you give your name to the coach, we will write your name on the board and keep a log of the 12 days.  Don’t worry if life gets in the way, just complete as many workouts as you can. 

Tips to those taking on this challenge for the first time:

-Get enough sleep! This is your ‘rest’ time, of which you need as much as possible, so aim for 8 hours at least!

-Fuel and recover well. Without good recovery you will be sore by day 6 so make sure your eating enough and repairing those muscles. Maybe considering upping your food intake, not hard at Christmas but sadly we don’t mean the choccies! Think about perhaps taking on more good proteins, fats and carbs, you’ll need all the energy you can get!

-Mobilise! You want to be as supple leopard as possible and not squatting like your granny by the end of 12 days, so keep moving. Think about adding some extra mobility into your morning and evening routine.

-Have fun! This really is an enjoyable 12 days, even on Day 8 when your thinking will this ever end and wondering why on earth you’d agreed to do this, its all for fun.  You’ll proudly be able to say at the end of the 12 days you tried your hardest and were able to push and dedicate yourself to the challenge….

The WOD on Day 12 is a very special one, the 12 wods of Christmas WOD! Christmas jumpers encouraged.

Hitting 12 benchmark WODs in a row is a very tough challenge.  No need to RX every WOD.  This is not meant to break people! Take it easier some days.  Remember to enjoy it, laugh and have fun.  Get ripped in time for that Turkey dinner 😉

Workouts to be released this eve…
