Thanksgiving 5 Minute Butt Blaster Workout

With Thanksgiving tomorrow, there’s no doubt going to be a temptation to pig out on all your favorite, cozy holiday dishes. But why not also make it a tradition to get in a great workout the morning of Thanksgiving in as little as 5 minutes?? This workout will give you more energy, help you avoid that dreadful holiday weight gain and make you earn your dinner!

Go ahead, why don’t you join me and click the play button below so we can get started?

I love this 5 minute butt blaster because I can do it in one sitting without taking up too much space. In other words, are you away from home right now visiting family and don’t have a ton of space to workout wherever you may be? No problem. I created this workout especially for you guys who don’t have a lot of wiggle room to deal with. This workout is also very apartment friendly in that there is no jumping around to disturb your neighbors around you. 🙂

If you are feeling strong repeat this workout 3 more times for a total of 20 minutes for a booty burning blast. After getting in a good burn, I guarantee that meal is going to taste even better!

This workout has a total of 5 moves, with 30 second intervals each side each for a  total of 5 minutes of non-stop burn. If you have a knee injury, make sure to use extra padding underneath the knee to make it comfortable for you.

And remember, just because you may be showing less skin this time of year due to cold weather doesn’t mean your workout routine has to suffer because of it! No gym, no time? No problem. Our workouts are quick, efficient, and most require little to no equipment so let’s get our sweat on.
