Burn Before Bird: The TURKEY Workout

The six-move circuit, created by Daily Burn 365 trainer Erika Shannon, will help you break a sweat in a flash. By interspersing killer toning moves with energizing cardio bursts, you’ll get a full-body burn in minutes flat. Do each move for one minute, alternating sides after 30 seconds during both the T-Tilt and Rear Lunge Rotations. Maintain proper form during the cardio moves — Uppercuts and Kickboxing — and make sure to keep your core tight during the Elbow-to-Knees.
