        The past two years we have done a 25 day workout program leading up to Christmas (Fitmas I and II). This past Christmas, I pushed out that workout plan privately.

        Since I know some of you are at home, social distancing in response to the COVID19 pandemic, I’m posting up Fitmas II for anyone interested.

        Bear in mind, this isn’t a fitness program per se, but rather a broad range of workouts (some are simply tests). Doing the full 25 days WILL likely get you in better shape, at the very least, it’ll highlight relative strengths and weaknesses. You can then make an informed decision on where you need the most work.

        Apologies for any formatting issues, I was copy and pasting via mobile.

        If you’re thinking “what the hell is he talking about?” With some of the workouts below, just ask for clarification.

            I am sooo glad we picked up a new treadmill a few weeks ago. When your tethered to a phone taking orders, you can get short runs in sometimes between calls.

            Kettlebells- nice to carry around the house a couple times a day (Farmer’s carry I believe they are called). Shoulder shrugs, curls, overhead twirls. Go to kneeling keep back straight hold your flavor of kettle bell like a 35 goblet fashion in your hands in the center of your body and keeping your back straight lean back as far as you can. Variation- lean back as far as you can raise KB and paint a picture in big circle.

            You can do the leanbacks without KB also.

            This sort of thing is helping me burn off a lot of stress.

            And get an Airsim rifle from Max asap- then you can practice manipulations and shoot BBs in the backyard while on quarantine if you can’t go to the range. :good:

                This is on my purchase list, but honestly given the townhouse community I live at in Fairfax county, I’ll have SWAT rolling in on me if I were to walk into my backyard with an “evil-looking black rifle”, let alone put out some paint with it. :wacko:

                  Thank you for posting this JohnnyMac!
                  As a courier for a major delivery company I have not had (or taken) the time to do the Fitmas workout plan, as this occurs during our busiest time of year. Usually during that “peak” time I get in 8-10 miles humping packages in varied terrains and conditions, so I’ve never felt pushed to add more workout time.

                  Even now, as Austin and the surrounding counties will most likely go under shelter in place regulations, my job will still be busy delivering. I suspect that I will have time to work in the plan though.

                  Thank you again!

                      I am working up to 500 two arm kettlebell swings a day for four weeks. I am currently at 200 for my next workout. I’m working up to it…started at 100 and add 20 per day, working out three times a week due to stiffness. I have already noticed a difference in movement performance.
