Whether you are hosting a Thanksgiving gathering or traveling to one, getting to the gym isn’t always doable. However, you can still squeeze in a sweat from the comfort of your home or hotel room before you head off to celebrate with loved ones. (And what better way to work up your Thanksgiving appetite than with a killer workout?!)
To help you get in a full-body, fat blasting workout, I’ve put together the Fit Fast Turkey Burn that you can do anywhere, anytime…and in just 25 minutes! Ready to work? Let’s do it!
After warming up on the treadmill or running in place for five minutes, perform each exercise for 30 seconds. Perform 4 rounds with no rest between exercises, and minimize rest between sets.
With feet together, jump side to side.
Get in the plank position. Bring one leg forward under your chest while the other leg is extended and then switch. Continue alternating your legs to your chest. Go as fast as you can while keeping your body and abs tight.
Weighted Wide Squats
With feet wider than shoulder-width apart, hold one heavy dumbbell or kettlebell, squat all the way down and press up without locking knees. Make sure to keep your chest up and don’t let your knees come over your toes.
Horse Stance Punches
Get in a horse stance, keep abs in tight, and punch hard! Get angry and make sure to breathe with every punch.
Hold behind your knees if you need more stability, but make sure to engage your abdominals.
Extend your arms straight behind your ears and pulse up. Keep your chin up and contract your upper abdominals.
