'A Christmas Story' Workout!

2013-12-23 | By: Snap Fitness

30 years ago, one of the greatest holiday movies of all-time was released – A Christmas Story! The story of Ralphie’s quest to get his very own Red Ryder BB Gun has become a timeless holiday tradition for people all over the world. This season, in honor of the movie, we’re helping you fight off those holiday pounds while enjoying your favorite holiday film with our Christmas Story Workout!

Every time you see or hear one of the following things happen during the movie, do the corresponding exercise:

Every time Ralphie says he wants a Red Ryder BB Gun: 5 jumping jacks
*Pace yourself – he says it 28 times in the film

Every time someone tells Ralphie he’ll shoot his out: 5 push-ups

Someone says the word “Fra-gil-ey”: 10 burpees

Each time someone increases a dog-dare: 10 mountain climbers per dare

Ralphie’s dad curses in gibberish: 30 crunches

Ralphie wears the pink bunny suit: 60 second wall sit

Get the whole family involved this holiday season and share your results with us on Facebook or Twitter!
