Thanksgiving was a wonderful day of pounding more food into your gut than you ever thought imaginable. You probably puked from sheer food overload, and if that didn’t do it, the ungodly amount of booze you sucked down to drown out your annoying uncle probably did. Needless to say, you are probably feeling like a bag of trash about yourself right now, and need some help to burn off that fat, and sweat out those eating sins. We have three workouts for you to hit to help you feel instantly better.

Thanksgiving Workout


This one is no shocker, and it is painfully obvious, but needs to be said. Hitting a jog to sweat out all those toxins will suck, but it will certainly make you feel better. It’s probably a bit nippy outside, so make sure to toss on a hoodie. Not only will this keep the blood flow throughout your body at a higher rate, it will cause you sweat even more. Remember, this is all about sweating out what you ate and drank, so maximize it. Even if you need to stop every little bit from the cramping from the mashed potatoes, that’s fine. Just make sure you at least keep walking until you’re ready to start up jogging again.


If you don’t know what a Burpee is, hit the old Google machine and check out some videos. Explaining it through words would just get confusing, and probably cause a post-Thanksgiving injury to you. Once you understand how to do them, try a few out. You will quickly realize why they made this list. They are tough, and hit the entire body, which is good. No doubt you feel like your saddlebags exploded and your bingo wings are causing you to take flight after all the food you ate, and Burpees will help hit all of those areas. Try doing multiple sets of 25, and once you’re out of breath and sweating, you know they are starting to work.

Jump Rope

All of these workouts involve constant movement, which is exactly what you need after a couple days of sitting in sweatpants all day seeing how much weight you can possibly gain. Jumping rope is great because you can do it just about anywhere, while doing anything. Another great thing about it is the fact that you don’t need to do it for hours on end. A solid 15 minute session will be surprisingly difficult, and will starting hitting you harder than you thought. This is going to hit a lot of your body, and once again cause those pores to sweat. Try doing it a few times throughout the day, and next thing you know you’ll be starting to feel back to normal.


Now this isn’t really a workout, so maybe it shouldn’t be on this list, but we are talking about sweating here people. Sitting in an oven like room for a bit will certainly cause that sweat effect, and you will probably smell the booze and turkey seep out of you. Make sure you stay in long enough to sweat it all out, but not too long you die. Figured we should toss that disclaimer in there.
