Most of you based in the U.S. are getting ready to celebrate Thanksgiving with your family or friends, and we hope you’re looking forward to all the holiday staples and homemade treats.
And while we would never recommend you actually diet on Thanksgiving Day (you’re not going to ruin all your fitness goals in one day!), we always encourage a little movement, especially before a big meal.
So that’s why we wanted to give you guys a workout that you can do in the morning while the turkey is cooking and before all the chaos begins. You won’t need much space or equipment to get it done, so you can bust it out whether you’re in your parents’ garage, living room, even walk in closet 😃
So grab a medicine ball, some dumbbells, or even a heavy book, and get through the workout as fast as you can before the fun starts. Better yet, get your family and friends to do it with you!
(If you’re outside of the U.S. you can still do the workout!)

In today’s post, I’d like to share with you my recent experience with not being able to work out for a long time due to some health reasons, and how I started training again after I felt better again.
After being active for most of my life, I wasn’t allowed to work out for six months starting at the end of last year. I’ll tell you all about my story and why in the post, and while you may not have experienced the same thing I was struggling with, if you’ve been sidelined from working out for a while due to injury or illness, I believe this post will help you to get started again safely.
