This week is Thanksgiving in the US and I am hell bent on keeping you (as well as myself) from gaining weight this holiday season.
In fact, my bigger goal for everyone is that you actually weight LESS on Jan 1 then you do right now!
I think that is a great vision. But sadly, I’m not that confident it will happen unless I can get you to control your eating over the next 6 weeks and start to ramp up your exercise to accommodate for the fun you do have.
So, here’s this week’s Fitness Challenge:
10 bodyweight squats
10 push ups
Oh yeah, I’m ramping things up a bit htis week since you will most likely indulging this week.
Here’s how to do this workout:
- Complete the three exercises as a circuit, performing one exercise after the other with no rest in between each one.
- When you finish with the circuit, rest for 1 minute and then complete the circuit 2 more times for a total of 3 times through the circuit.
- You should complete this workout 4x this week.
**Note: if you are a beginner, start with only doing this circuit 2x per workout and only 3 x this week.
**If you are more advanced, complete this circuit for 20 minutes, completeing as many circuits as possible. Couny how many you do in 20 minutes and try to beat your score the next time.
Here is a short video demonstrating the exercises in this week’s fitness challenge:
