Christmas is almost here and it’s hard to find time to work out every day. It seems like you barely have a second to breathe in between the decorating, gift shopping, gift wrapping, holiday cooking and writing Christmas cards, let alone find time to get in a full workout! Have no fear; this full-body workout takes less than 10 minutes every day! It gradually builds upon itself every day, so that you add a new move as Christmas approaches. By day 12, you’ll be a pro at this circuit! Check it out below.

Day 1: Plank for a full minute. Seems easy enough, right? Wrong! This might be the longest minute of your entire day. Here’s how to do a forearm plank.

Day 2: Do a two-minute wall sit.
