After eating a big meal, the last thing your body wants (or needs) is to start bouncing around in a workout. But that doesn't mean you should collapse into a turkey coma on the couch either.
Getting your body moving is crucial for digestion and to spark your metabolism (you don't want to store all those calories as fat, do you?). Use this four-move workout to gently get your body working after you've eaten a big meal. It takes less than 10 minutes and will leave you feeling lighter and more energized.
- Pulsing squats
- Triceps dips
- Hip thrusts
- Modified mountain climbers
This is a "countdown" workout, meaning that we'll begin with 10 reps of each exercise, then do 9 reps, then 8 reps, and so on until we reach 1 rep.
