Pressed for time? With Thanksgiving tomorrow & folks traveling I thought posting a fun quick “Turkey Burn” workout people could do from their homes or final destinations would be appropriate.

Performed as a circuit with 30 seconds rest between, these exercises should get your heart-rate up and muscles engaged. Waiting for the turkey cook? See how many circuits you can do in 5, 10, 15 minutes.
