Happy Thanksgiving Challenge!

November 24, 2010

An aesthetically pleasing dinner plate. Enough protein?

 Thanksgiving dinner is the perfect meal to crush some high quality protein. Most people load up heavy on the carbs and then feel guilty when they have a slice or two of pie. My friend Jorin once gave me great advice for eating a mean Thanksgiving meal: Eat as many carbs, starches, and sugars as you want to for this one meal, BUT, for every carb, starch, or sugar you consume, you must eat equal parts protein. So…. if you have a plate full of casserole, mashed potatoes, and dinner rolls, then you better have another full plate of turkey and ham with it. Point is, don’t have a plate full of stuff that doesn’t make you a better athlete. See how much awesomeness you can eat.

Thanksgiving Challenge:
Complete this challenge at some point this week. Bonus points for making a family member join you.

For time*:
400m run
25 pushups
50 air squats
75 situps

*Rules: Every 5 minutes you must perform 10 burpees. You must stop where you are, do your 10 burpees, then you can continue where you left off. So if the workout takes you over 20 minutes to complete, you have added at least 40 burpees to your work load! Ouch! Don’t let that happen to you. Crush this!
