Thanksgiving day stretch and shred bodyweight workout

November 28, 2013 2 min read

The holidays can get really busy.  It can be tough to stay on point and consistent with our workouts with all the social and travel obligations that arise this time of the year. We are life stylers, and just because things get busy we won't let our fitness slip!  It is  possible to squeeze in a 20 minute workout, regardless of how busy we are. Infact ,  it will be just what you need during these chaotic, hectic and stressful times. I wanted to come up with a workout that you could do anywhere,  on the road, staying with family, a hotel, or even at home when you need to smash out a quickie.  I also wanted to add some flexibility and stretching while we put in our shred time, to help with travel stiffness, and tension release from these stressful moments, holidays can create. Grab a timer, a mat and if possible a door frame. This workout will touch on strength, flexibility and  because you are pushing hard, get your heart rate up. A good goal would try for 2 rounds in 20 minutes, or complete 2 rounds as fast as you can without compromising your form. See video below for exercise explanation. The video above has the exercise explanations, and I also did the first round to give you a feel for the workout. It's not the toughest workout in the world, but with the flexibility element, I feel it helps with relaxation, stress relief, and enables you to keep up your strength and get a nice burn.

Here’s the breakdown:

Warm up 5-10 minutes

20 reps Squat Jump with alternating T-pose holde

20 reps Reverse plank dips with leg extensions alternate legs

20 single arm squat thrusts alternating arms

20 childs pose to triceps pushups

20 lunge jumps

20 pike press to 3 legged dog alternate legs

20 sit up to straddle

5 pull ups  ( optional)

  20120204_workout_121   Let's be thankful for our health, our amazing bodies, and how lucky we are to enjoy what we have. Yours in health, Jossy

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
