Hello, hello! Turkey day is upon us and I know many of you are gearing up for a day of family, friends and food. I also know that many of you are like me and enjoy squeezing in a workout along with your holiday festivities.
I have pulled together some of my favorite bodyweight workouts that you can do with no equipment on Thanksgiving Day so that whether you’re at home, visiting family or traveling…you can get in a good sweat. I encourage you to recruit your family and friends to workout with you so everyone can have a healthy start to the day!
And let it be noted, if you’d rather skip working out on Thanksgiving and spend the day resting and focusing on togetherness and feasting…then that is perfect too. Remember, one day of being off of your normal routine doesn’t mean a thing when it comes to fitness and healthy eating…in fact…it’s healthy to be flexible that way! 🙂
Whatever you do, be sure to practice gratitude in whatever way that it feels best for you…whether that is your own quiet time of reflection, writing in a journal, doing a meditation or going around the table and sharing. <3
And now for those workouts…
THE RUNNING 500
The Running 500 is one from the archives…like circa 2014 (!!!)…but it’s a good one! Five rounds of 10 bodyweight exercises with a 400 meter run (0.25 miles) to kick off each round. You’ll end up with 500 reps and a little over a mile of running. Of course, you can increase the run distance if you want a little more.
COUPLES (OR PARTNER!) BURPEE WORKOUT
What better way to kick off Thanksgiving than burpees with a partner! 🙂 My Couples Burpee Workout features five different partner exercises along with a burpee challenge. Some friendly competition makes this workout extra fun!
TORCH THE TURKEY BODYWEIGHT WORKOUT
My Torch the Turkey Bodyweight Workout combines running with two circuits of bodyweight exercises for a total body burn!
30-MINUTE BOOTCAMP STYLE WORKOUT
My Bootcamp-Style Workout is a 30-minute workout where you do one minute of 10 different bootcamp-inspired movements. Rest for a minute or two and do it all again.
7-MINUTE AMRAPS WORKOUT
This HIIT-Style 7 Minutes AMRAP Workout is quick and intense!
Summer might be over but this 24-minute tabata workout will have you sweating like it’s 90 degrees out!
