Hello and happy Thanksgiving week! It’s my favorite holiday of the year!
In preparation for the upcoming feast, I have a great workout to share with you that’s high in intensity and sure to make some room for the turkey and pie! 🙂
In addition to testing this workout myself, I also put several clients through it. And it’s a good one that targets full-body strength while keeping your heart rate up! You have the option to perform the workout once or twice through. Just to give you an idea…it should take somewhere between 20-30 minutes to do two rounds. No form demo video this time since I’m not introducing any movements that y’all haven’t seen before.
Onto the weekly workout recap…
This was a pretty tame week of workouts for me. As I mentioned earlier in the week, I found that my body needed a lot of TLC after the Thunder Road Half Marathon. I ended up taking two full days off from working out after the race and it was just what the doctor ordered. I didn’t make my way back to the road to run until Thursday and my body felt pretty creaky. I did an easy three miles. I ran again Saturday and things were feeling more back to normal. I took another rest day today because I needed it after a marathon weekend of teaching hot yoga.

5 rounds of back squats and bench press (75/65)
15 minute AMRAP:

I think I finished 7 rounds. My butt was sore for two days.
