WOD – Burning off pesky Thanksgiving weight

My focus varies every week when it comes to working out. This week my focus was solely on burning off that pesky Thanksgiving holiday weight that creeps up on us all.

I talked myself into doing pull ups, despite having slight pain in my right elbow. I’am proud that I have been out of the military for five years and can still do a full max set up pull-ups. 

Great for leg lifts! Works that whole entire abdominal mid-section.

Since visiting this new gym, I have added battle rope to my workout regime. Battle rope  will leave you breathless and alive within a short about of time. 

With the year being at its near end, and temperatures colder I’am trying to get in as many bike miles I can indoors.


  • 4.01 mile bike ride
  • 2.15 mile treadmill run
  • Abdominal workout: 80 seated knee lifts
  • Abdominal workout: 20 leg lifts
  • Curls: 15 repetitions of 40 pounds
  • Pull ups: 20
  • Push ups: 30
  • Battle rope: 40 repetitions
  • Standing lat pull: 20 repetitions of 37 pounds
