I hope that you are having a great day. I can’t believe that Christmas will be here on Friday already. We have slightly different traditions here in the Czech Republic than what Freddy is used to in Canada. We don’t have Santa Claus, but we have Jezisek and he comes on the 24th of December right after dinner and leaves presents under the tree. As soon as Jezisek lets us know with a ring of a bell that the presents are there, we gather around the tree and open our presents. The traditional Christmas meal in Carp – which families tend to keep alive in their bath tubs for the whole day before the meal is prepared. I was very happy to switch to Turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing once I had my first Christmas meal in Canada Freddy’s traditions are right out of the American Christmas movies, and I have to admit that they appeal to me more than the ones that I grew up with. However, I still have some traditions here in Czech that I would like to share with you guys over the holidays
I hope that you guys are keeping up with the schedule! Enjoy the challenge!

Scissors with Jump Rope – 75 reps
If you didn’t get your Jump Rope yet, you can still do this exercise without it.
The Dip station is amazing equipment for this exercise, but you can also do knee raises off of a pull up bar. If you don’t have Dip Station or Pull Up bar, then do leg lifts on your exercise mat.
