Thanksgiving Day 1000 Rep Workout

Thanksgiving Day 1000 Rep Damage Control Workout 


This is one of my favorite rep count workouts to test not only physical but also your mental toughness as well. It’s my 1000 rep workout, I like to throw this session in every few months as a test, or use it as damage control before big holiday feasts “Thanksgiving & Christmas Dinner.” The nice thing is it takes minimal equipment so you can actually get after this workout just about anywhere you have access to a set of dumbbells.


So, here is the setup you complete 10 reps of each exercise before moving onto the next exercise for all 10 patterns that equals 100 reps. You continue this pattern for 10 total rounds equaling 1000 sweat dripping reps of work. Track for time to see how you do and compare the next time you give this session a try. As always chase quality not just the clock the ultimate goal is to build muscle and shed some fat, not to see how fast you can sloppily speed through it. Get after it and please let me know how you do by sharing your time with me I love hearing how people do their first time around.


Scale dumbbells accordingly to your ability level I am 6’2 220lbs and an advanced trainee, for this workout I typically use 35lbs DB and it is a challenge.


-Push Ups 10 Reps

-DB Rows 10 Reps

-Squats 10 Reps

-DB Shoulder Press 10 Reps

-Burpees 10 Reps

-DB Double Arm Curls 10 Reps

-Seal Jacks 10 Reps

-Elevated Bulgarian Split Squat L- 10 Reps

-Elevated Bulgarian Split Squat R- 10 Reps

-Box Jumps 10 Reps


That’s 1 full cycle rest only as needed and complete for 10 total cycles = 1000 reps.


Until next time eat well, train hard & be nice to people.
