Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I often take time throughout the year to think about what I am grateful for. In fact, I keep a gratitude journal and write at least 3 things I am grateful for each day. Some days it is easier than others, but I can always find at least 3 things I honestly feel grateful for.
This week I am actually on vacation with my family and don't have access to heavy weights, so I'll be taking a bit of a different approach to my lifting sessions. I plan on keeping each movement slow and purposeful and going to muscle failure. You're welcome to join me in lifting this way or keep going with the protocol we've been doing this month- 8 reps per exercise using a heavier weight.
I know it's a busy week for many people, so keep the workouts short if you need to by doing less rounds of each set. But take some time every day to move your body. You'll feel better and be more likely to stay on track with your goals.
