This year I took up a challenge suggested by a fan and it is the 12 Days of Christmas Record Challenge. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do 12 days of records in a row because of my busy schedule, but I put my mind to it and somehow pulled it off! However, I didn’t it start 12 days before Christmas and end on Christmas. I started the Count Down on December 9th and ended on December 20th. Here I have my 12 days in a row of endurance strength exercises for Christmas!!
Take a look! Do you have a favorite challenge?
DAY 1 (December 9, 2012) Most Consecutive Triple Egg on Spoon in Mouth Bosu Knee Tucks With Egg on Spoon In Mouth Perfect Pull-Ups
I created this new challenge after breaking the consecutive knee tuck record for the 6th time this year at Recordsetter. I needed to try something more challenging after doing 513 consecutive knee tucks on December 6th. In this challenge, I add the Bosu and 3 eggs to balance and I only do 16 knee tucks. A far cry from my 513, but this is MUCH MORE challenging. Then, I keep going…See full scoop here:
Day 2 (December 10, 2012) Most Consecutive Bar Runner Exercise
I did this challenge for the first time this month. This challenge was created by a NY fitness trainer. I found this to be very aerobic and definitely gives the muscles a good burn!!
Day 3 (December 11, 2012) Most Reps in 10-Minute Extreme Pushup and Deep Squat Variety Act
This is yet another first time challenge where I combined many advanced level types of squats and then pushups together and went continuous for 10 minutes for most reps. Each exercise was 1 minute in length. My results 297 total reps. Too many wild exercises in this bout to describe, watching is best!
Day 4 (December 12, 2012) Most Reps in 1hr of Consecutive Reptile-Pushups
This is one challenge I have building my endurance for all year. I set several short duration speed records at Recordsetter earlier in the year and this was the final year end review of my fitness in a challenge that is 3-5 times tougher than standard pushups. 1 Reptile + 1 Pushup = 1 Rep See why this challenge is so much tougher than a normal pushup here:
Day 5 (December 13, 2012) Longest Swiss Ball Leg Lift Cadence Test
Just a day after completing the grueling reptile-pushups that shred the abs, I jump into one of the toughest types of cadence tests isolating the abdominals and improve my time by 9 minutes!
DAY 6 (December 14, 2012) Most Reps in Weighted Double L Challenge
This challenge was created to take the entire core to a maximum burn in a very short period of time with the first exercise and then continue with the second exercise, while still on fire!! The goal is to push thru the pain for maximum reps! I bet you will be surprised at the 2 exercises that really put the abs on fire! One clue – the first one is an exercise in gymnastics…Find out more here:
DAY 7 (December 15, 2012) Most Alternating Squat Thrusts in One Minute
World Wecord Wabbit returns today to take back her record. I set this record as the wabbit for Halloween and it became one of the Top 15 Most Popular Recordsetter World Records for 2012. Now, I return with a new record 372 alternating thurst in a minute and I am joined with a BIG friend…Find Out:
DAY 8 (December 16, 2012) Most Consecutive Shoulder Level Perfect Pull-Ups
This is a new “twist” to pull-up challlenge. Take a look!
DAY 9 (December 17, 2012) Fastest 84ft Combo Crab Walk
During, my trainees “Holiday Record Week” we turned a ballroom into a speed course for crab walking!! I went after the overall record for the 84ft crab walk with a time of 12.43 seconds, while my trainees “Hammer Head” took the master’s world record in a time of 20.59 seconds!
DAY 10 (December 18, 2012) Highest Score in Triple Exercise with Triple Eggsercise Challenge
This is a very challenging muscular endurance test where one can’t do it unless they are able to do 20 consecutive strict pull-ups, 20 consecutive bar dips where arms break parallel, and then 20 consecutive decline pushups and repeat for 17 minutes. Then, go into the Sumo Squat Eggsercise. Hopefully, I peaked your interest, so go ahead and have a peak:
DAY 11 (December 19, 2012) Longest Distance with Egg-On-Spoon-In-Mouth Hanging Arm Walk
This is a new type of extreme arm walk where you need to keep an egg balanced on spoon. Once it falls, the walk is over! Hang in there and check it out:
DAY 12 (December 20, 2012) Most Consecutive Egg-ON-Spoon-In-Mouth Pullups in One Minute
I wanted to end my challenge in an eggstatic style with an eggcellent effort during this Christmas Count Down and re-set the Recordsetter record with 16!
There you have my 12 Days of Records!!
Now, take a glimpse at my “2012 Holiday Record Week”. I held this event on December 17th and 2 of my trainees set Recordsetter World Records.
