2/6: Strength Training

It included:

Angel wings {squats} x 20 

MistleTOE touches & reach for the stars (deadlift reaches) x 20 

Raindeer Row x 20 

Nutcracker into Candy Cane xt 20 

Santa’s Sleigh (I had socks…I did not have paper plates) x 20 

Deck the halls (lunges) x 50 

You’re suppose to do the circuit 3x …I did it 1x.

 But after being reminded of the power of Donkey Kicks I added:

Donkey Kicks 2 x 25 per side

Side leg raises 2 x 25 per side

Why hello glutes, nice to know that you exist.
