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.

Tighten your stomach muscles, then slowly raise buttocks off floor. “Push” knees away as you lift, & knees back as you lower.


Bridging + Alt. straight leg:

Tighten your stomach muscles and raise buttocks off floor. While elevated, straighten Right knee and return to starting position . Repeat the same motion to the Left, that’s one repetition. Try this without lowering hips between sets for added difficulty.

Bridge + Alt. Leg Raise

Side Plank:

Lie on your side with your forearm on the floor under your shoulder to hold you up, and your feet stacked. Tighten your core (abdominals + glutes) and press your forearm against the floor to raise your hips until your body is straight from ankles to shoulder. Hold 10-15 seconds.


Single – Leg Drop

Step #1: Lie on your back with legs extended straight up.


Step #2 :
Keeping legs straight, lower your left leg until your foot is 2 to 3 inches off the floor. Return to starting position & repeat with
your right leg. That’s one rep.



In a pushup position, but with your elbows bent and your weight resting on your forearms. Your body should form a straight line. Now brace your abs as if someone were about to punch your stomach. Hold for 30 seconds.
