10 Minute Thanksgiving Day Workouts

By November 28, 2013

Follow me on:

I normally try to avoid all caps but, today is an exception because I must shout just how thankful I am for all of my smart, fit, loyal readers out there who make my job so incredible. So: THANK YOU FOR BEING AWESOME, DEAR READERS.

Let's move on to the nitty gritty. Every year, I post my ideas for Thanksgiving Day Workouts and my husband laughs and laughs, I suppose because it amuses him to think that anyone is really going to workout on this particular holiday. However, my husband doesn't know that my readers, like me, are often more likely to workout on Thanksgiving for one reason: 1. We are crazy.

Either way, I always like to put together a list of workouts ideas and this year, I'm picking some of my favorite 10-minute workouts. What I like is that you can do one of them or you could do all of them, depending on how much time/energy you have and your equipment situation. Happy Exercising:

I want to thank you for your column, it because of your column at the age of 50 I decided to get my life back thru exercise. I have been working with a personal trainer now for 2 months and have just joined a gym for the first time. I had not worked out due to a tumor on my brain that was non-cancerous, however for 18 months I was not allowed to work out and became A CLASS A COUCH POTATO.

Thank you for helping me to see the light again.

Hi Paige,

Love your column. Tell the hubby there are many Turkey Trotters out there. I did my first this year and in freezing cold weather…so yeah I guess we are crazy in a good way!

Happy Holidays!
