Thanksgiving Week Workout Plan (5 Quick Equipment-Free Workouts)

The holidays are here. Thanksgiving is just a few days away and before we know it, Christmas will be here too.  But don’t let Thanksgiving derail your workout plan!

The kids are out of school this week (mostly), there’s shopping to be done, and fellowship with friends and family. Let’s face it, there’s just not much time to workout.  However, limited time doesn’t mean we should stop working out all together. Let’s revise those workouts and keep them quick, efficient, and simple.  Below are five Thanksgiving workouts you can do from home!



Five Workouts for Thanksgiving Week


Here’s five workouts you can do from home this week that will help you stay active, burn calories, and have fun!



For time:


Air squat

Push up

(So 10 squats and 10 push ups, 9 squats and 9 push ups, 8 and 8 etc. until 1 and 1)

Notes: It you want to make this a longer workout, double the reps. 20-18-16, etc. If you’re unable to do a push up from the ground, make it an incline push up from a bench, box, or wall.




12-minute AMRAP (Repeat the circuit as many times through as Possible in 12 minutes)

10 Lunges

30-second plank hold on elbows

10 Burpees

30-second plank hold on elbows

Notes: If you’re unable to do a lunge, sub air squats. Break up the plank hold as needed to accumulate 30 seconds.




For Time:

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10 (Again, 1 of each, 2 of each….10 of each)


Sit ups

Notes: This should be short, fast, and intense.




For time:

100 Lunges

75 air squats

50 push ups

25 burpees

Only 1 time through, but done in order!  So all 100 lunges before moving on to all 75 air squats.

Notes: If you’re unable to lunge, sub jumping jacks. Use a bench or box if unable to do a pushup from the ground.




For max reps



Push ups

Sit ups

Notes: 4 minutes total each exercise – 20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest for 8 rounds

8 rounds of air squats, then 8 rounds of push ups, then 8 rounds of sit ups. The total workout should be 12 minutes. Keep track of total reps.



Do you have someone to hold you Accountable?


These workouts are great and they absolutely work…If you do them!

There’s no shortage of free workouts out there.  In fact, there’s more free info available now than there has ever been in the past.  Yet, our country continues to get less and less healthy.  Why?

It’s not a lack of information we’re suffering from- it’s a lack of ACTION.  And action takes accountability.  If you want someone who is going to hold you accountable, make sure you stay safe, and guide you along the way, book a Discovery Call so we can sit down for a 20 minute conversation and see if we can help!
