My Dad and I hit up the local gym this morning to get a workout in before the Turkey Day tomorrow! I wanted to do a circuit style workout that would use my whole body, keep my heart rate up, and burn those calories long after my workout was done. We both started with a 25 minute warm-up/cardio session on the elliptical. I did intervals (minutes of higher speed, then minutes of higher resistance) to keep my heart rate pumping. Then the fun began as I led my Dad in this full body circuit..enjoy pre, on, or post Thanksgiving day!
Thanksgiving Full Body Circuit
Perform each Circuit 3x before moving onto the next
- Push-ups x10
- Squat with dumbbell hammer curls x15
- Overhead shoulder press x12
- Overhead tricep extensions x12
- Alternating front and side dumbbell raises x16
- Tricep dips x10
- Oblique twists with dumbbell x10/side
Finish with a plank hold for good abdominal measure…see how long you can hold it…
Be sure to stretch after too!
This workout should leave you sweating and ready to enjoy a yummy Thanksgiving feast… thank your body after for all its hard work. 🙂
