The 15 Minute Thanksgiving Day Workout

For many of you, Thanksgiving is a day of over-indulging yourself with wonderful foods and sitting around with family while watching parades and football games on television. Though a full-on workout may not be in the cards for you this Thanksgiving, 15 minutes is all you need to feel revitalized. The workout is simple, and it is even short enough to do during halftime so you don’t have to miss any of the football game.

Run, Jog or Walk for 1 mile – 12 minutes

At a 5 mph pace, which is a pretty easy to moderate jogging pace for most people, you will be done with your 1 mile jog in just 12 minutes.  If you don’t want to run or jog, the most important thing is that you just get out and move around. So, grab the entire family and go for a walk. If you walk at a brisk pace, about 4 mph, you can get the mile done in 15 minutes. Or, just casually stroll along and enjoy the fall scenery.

After your walk, get in a couple of quick exercises.

Pushups and Crunches – 3 minutes

Pushups and crunches will work your abs, shoulders and triceps. Do as many pushups as you can and then immediately flip over and do as many crunches as you can. Go back and forth for 3 minutes and you will have completed your 15 minute Thanksgiving Day workout.

Feel free to do more, and run a bit further or add some extra exercises. We just wanted to offer a realistic suggestion to keep you moving and feeling great this Thanksgiving.

Happy Turkey Day!
