Post-Thanksgiving Power Circuit Workout
If you overindulged this Thanksgiving, don’t feel bad. But with the turkey and pie behind us, it’s time to get back on track. This power circuit workout is designed to get your heart rate up to maximize calorie and fat burn. So let’s get to it.
For this workout you are going to rotate through four exercises for six minutes straight. It gets tough, but just make sure you keep moving. Take a three-minute break after your first circuit, then repeat for another six minutes. And if you want to really push yourself, do the circuit a third time.
Don’t forget to also do your warmup and cool down!
Post-Thanksgiving Power Circuit:
- 12 V Sit Ups – laying on the mat on your back, do a sit up while also pulling your knees in towards your chest. When you lay back down, keep your shoulders and legs lifted off the ground to work your abs more.
- 12 Spider Planks – in a high plank position, bring your knee out to the side and up to your elbow. Alternate legs each time. Spider planks are great for targeting your obliques.
- 12 Squat with Front Kick – You know what to do. Do a regular booty-burning squat and kick your leg forward as you stand up. Alternate your kicking leg each time.
- 12 Ski Mogul Jumps – Stand with your feet together. Bend your knees slightly and lean your back forward while swinging your elbows straight back (like you are a downhill skier). Swing your arms forward and jump up, landing in the same bending position on the other side. You can jump over your mat or a towel or anything else that helps.
