T.H.A.N.K.S.G.I.V.I.N.G Werkkkkkout! 11/24/15

Whoa. Working my back and booty like whoa. (haha, well- I’ll be honest it’s pretty full body)

Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving workout for you all and wanted to test it out first before having you guys try it!

First off, I just want to say thank you.

Thank you for being a great friend.

Thank you for reading my blogs.

Thank you for just being the fabulous person that YOU are.

I am so grateful for you.

Now go and get your workout on so you can go drink ALL the red wine. (Well, at least that is what I am going to do…)

For your Thanksgiving workout, I have put together a great full body workout with a little optional finisher at the end! I also realized that many of you may not be able to get to a gym, so I put together an alternate workout that is just body weight…

When I tested it out, I did all 26 reps of each exercise, one after the other and also did the negative chinups toward the end of the workout-  I was already kinda tired at that point so I would suggest you try it at the beginning..if you WANT. Or just do the ninety second plank-up to you loves!

I also suggest probably going 13 reps of each exercise and then just doing two rounds of it…Do whatever floats your boat. 26 reps was pretty brutal 🙂 Remember to get in some dynamic stretching and foam rolling before your workout and foam roll after the workout as well.

Without further adieu, here is your workout.


*Complete 26 reps of each exercise, or complete 13 reps of each exercise and do 2 rounds)

T-bar rows (oooo these feel so good!)

H-amstring curls

A-lternating KB or DB press (I used 15 lbs each hand)

N-egative chinups (I did about 10 body weight, then remainder 16 with my purple band-phew, holy hard!) OR Ninety second plank

K-neeling cable crunch

S-eated hammer curls ( I used 15 lbs each hand)

G-lute bridges ( I propped my feet up on a bench to get some extra OOMPF!)


V-bar pull downs (this is like a regular lat pull down, however you use the close grip handles instead)

I-ncline pushups

N-inety second plank

G-oblet squat (gobble gobble!!)     GOBLET SQUAT (1)

Once you finish..

Optional 11-26-15 finisher!

11 rounds, 15 seconds of SPRINT work, 26 seconds rest in between each round

I chose to row..I got on the erg marchine, completed 11 rounds of 15 seconds of fast work and rested for 26 seconds in between each. Feels so good to finish like that! (Other options..treadmill sprints, jumping jacks, med ball slam, battle rope!!!, bike)
