Good morning and happy day before Thanksgiving!
I’m a big fan of exercising on Thanksgiving morning before I eat a huge meal and one million desserts, so I wanted to share a full-body, butt-kicking workout that I really think you guys will enjoy. I used a barbell for this one, but dumbbells or a kettlebell would work too!

I linked to each of the individual movements below, but if you have any questions about them, please let me know.
Please note: The rep scheme is Thanksgiving-themed since it’s tomorrow’s date (11-26-15). Have fun! It’s a good one for sure!
Did you happen to notice the awesome new flooring in our home gym? It’s made from recycled rolled rubber (there’s even car tires mixed in) and it’s actually very inexpensive, but extremely durable at the same time.
And, of course, a little someone wanted to help “Dada” install it. Installation was a piece of cake. We went with the Double Sided Tape Installation, which took no time at all. Basically, we just unrolled the flooring, measured it, and then cut it with a utility knife. Easy-peasy. We had a brand new gym floor in about 20 minutes!
Our new gym flooring is perfect for protecting our floors from weighted bars, dumbbells, and kettlebells. It also has an anti-slip surface to help keep traction when doing various lateral movements. FYI: We got the 1/4″ roll option, which is recommended for use in home gyms and exercise rooms. (Can we talk about Quinn with the banana in the photo below? Clearly, he was pumped about our new floor!)
Nice work, Dada! High five!
