Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, green bean casserole, pie…oh my! What better way to try and torch those Thanksgiving calories than with a Tabata workout.

If you don’t recall how Tabata works, be sure to visit our post from August.

Perform the exercises in AB/AB/AB/AB (each exercise will be completed 4x) manner before moving on to the next pair. Do each exercise for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds and repeat. Rest as need. Need help keeping track of time? Find a timer app like Seconds to help keep your workout on track.
