If you missed it last week - I posted about my "One and Only Thanksgiving Day Rule":
So, we've got to get our sweat on before we get stuffed on Thursday, yes? Well, here's a great way to get sweaty, and with some fun cheesy exercise names to boot! Get the whole family involved!
Turkey Tabatas - a "tabata" is a type of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) that utilizes a 20 second on, 10 second off timing rule. You repeat that 30 second interval 8 times with each exercise before moving on.
Rest 1 full minute between exercises.
Here are a few pictures to demo each move ~ Get Your Game On!
From standing, walk your hands out to a long plank with your hands in a triangle (pie). Tricep pushup, then walk your hands back towards your feet and stand.
This is a cardio/plyometric exercise. Pretend you are running through tires, while in place. Keep your knees wide and high!
Hopefully these are the only "burpees" you are doing today! No pushup is necessary at the bottom.
Start with weights held at a 90 degree angle. Squat and return to stand. Extend your arms out, palms up, like you are holding a serving tray. Return to 90 degrees at your side and squat again.
Start in a high plank. Lower one elbow to the ground, then the other to a low plank. Push up with the opposite arm, and then the other to return to high plank.
I thought I would sport last year's Turkey Trot Tee during these photos! This 20 minute workout burns about 300 calories! I won't compare that to a piece of pie.
What about you?
How do you plan to get active this year on Thanksgiving?
