Thanksgiving (Holiday) Morning Firefighter Workout to Ignite Your Metabolism…

Here is a great way to start your Thanksgiving morning (or any morning).  This is a little workout that will burn some early morning calories, ignite your metabolism, and make room for some good Thanksgiving food.  I always like to do some morning workout or fun run with the family on Holidays, I find that I feel better all day and don’t eat as much.  Please give this a try!

Try to do as many circuits as possible in 15 or 20 minutes. Remember to perform an active warm-up before you begin.  (Click here for a good active Firefighter workout warm-up routine.) Do the suggested reps of each exercise then proceed to the next, rest as little as possible between exercises.

  1. Burpees x 10 reps
  2. Pull-ups or Body Rows x 10 reps
  3. Prisoner Lunges  x 5 reps per leg
  4. Squat to Press (around 20% body weight) x 10 reps
  5. Feet on Stability Ball (or bench) Push ups x 10 reps
  6. Plank (hold) for 30 seconds

Repeat the circuit as many times as you can for the allotted time (15 or 20) minutes.
