Keep Moving Over the Thanksgiving Weekend With This 4-Day Plan You Can Do Anywhere
Do not head into this feast-filled holiday without a plan to get yourself moving. Don't you always feel better after a sweat sesh? Here are four days' worth of workouts to burn calories, stimulate your digestion, and just plain feel better. All these workouts can be done at home, too!
Thursday: Rev Your Metabolism
You know that feeling: you sit down for your Thanksgiving meal, and you're not even hungry since you have been snacking on appetizers all day long. If you start your day with 45 minutes of cardio boxing, we're pretty sure you'll be hungry come dinner time. The combo of core work, cardio moves, and vigorous shadow boxing will rev your metabolism so it's humming all day long, leaving you hungry come mealtime. Plus, if you want to start this four-day weekend off on an active and healthy foot, this is the way to do it.

Friday: No Bouncing Around
You feasted. You feel sluggish — we get it. That's why today's workout is low impact, which means no bouncing around. Even though you're not jumping, this workout is still intense. If you have resistance bands, pull them out and use them to make the workout even more intense. If you don't have any bands, don't worry about it. You'll get plenty from this workout without them.
