It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week! Before you know it, the hustle and bustle of the holidays will be in full swing, leaving us less time for the gym and more time to put on some extra pounds. Most people gain an average of 10-15 lbs during the holidays and if you are already carrying around a few extra pounds, it makes it that much more difficult to get rid of.

So don't be a "turkey" this Thanksgiving. Here's how you can stay in awesome shape through the holiday season - it only takes 30 minutes a day, 4-5 times a week to make a dramatic difference.

All you need for this workout is a stability ball and some bands.

The "I Ain't No Turkey" Workout
Perform these eight exercises in the following order, resting only 20 to 30 seconds between each. Try to repeat as many times as possible for 25-30 minutes.

1) Jumping Jacks or Jump Rope.......................................................30 Seconds
2) Stability Ball Push-Ups..................................................................10-15x
3) Squats (standing on band, holding the handles for resistance)...................15x
4) Band Rows.....................................................................................10-15x
5) Mountain Climbers.........................................................................30 Seconds
(Push-up position then alternately drive knees towards chest like you are running)
