Thanksgiving Morning Workout

Updated: November 22, 2017


We have put together a Thanksgiving morning workout to prepare for the massive amount of food that you will inevitably intake on Thanksgiving day. It is designed for small spaces, lack of time, and lack of equipment. Take 10-20 minutes in the morning while you are waiting for the big meal and give this workout a try.

6 Thanksgiving Food Facts


But FIRST, we want to share some Thanksgiving food facts that we found interesting. They might even motivate you to get a little sweaty before chowing down!

#1 – The average person consumes 4,500 calories on Thanksgiving Day.

#2 – The amount of fat consumed on Thanksgiving day is equal to 3 sticks of butter!

#3 – The traditional Thanksgiving food with the most calories is PECAN PIE!

The Thanksgiving Morning Workout


IMPORTANT – Make sure you modify this to your own fitness level. Take enough rest between the rounds, and take rest at any point when it is needed. Bring down the number of reps to a manageable number if you cannot complete the suggested amount. 10 to 20 minutes should be the goal completion time!
