Do not be chased by Day 12 of the New Year's Challenge – it's not as easy as it looks! Today's body weight training looks like two movements, but in fact you combine four movements that you have already made before. You start with a bucket squat, but instead of squatting over and over again, put your hands on the floor every time you squat down, jump back into a plank, and make a rainbow board. The second move crawls forward, depending on how much space you allow. Then walk back to return to the starting point. It's an uncomplicated bodyweight workout, but it's really impressive.
After learning the new motion patterns, try to smooth your transitions as much as possible. How fast can you safely change from a busy to a plank? If you find that you can perform your lunges much faster than your bear crawls, you slow down the lunges so that the speed of both exercises is more even. As we mentioned on Day 5 you always have the option of performing reverse lunges if the lunges on your knees do not feel good (19459010).
This training was performed exclusively for the SELF up to Alyssa Exposito . Before you start, remember that warming up is an integral part of your workout. You can choose from one of these warm-up exercises in the list we provided, or spend about five minutes doing your own. Tomorrow is a cardio training, so make today's strength training really important!

- Return your hips and bend your knees to squat so that your knees can bend at least 90 degrees.
- At the lowest point Place the weight on the ground and then place both hands directly under your shoulders on the floor so that you are in a low squat with your hands on the floor.

- Lower on right forearm then lower left arm to enter a forearm plank.
- Slowly lower your right hip to the right, with the core drawn in, so that it approaches the floor. Return to the center, then lower your left hip to the left so that it knocks on the floor.
- When you're done, return to a high plank position and walk or hop with your hands toward your hands to return to a low squat. Get up to complete the move.

- Crawl further forward, depending on space. If you can not crawl forward, get up and turn to the way you came.
