Looks like our angry bird friend here is ready for Thanksgiving!  If you are anything like me, you are already thinking about that yummy day full of gravy, stuffing, pie and roasted turkey!  Since we all tend to eat a bit more than we should this time of year, I thought I would share some Nerd Fitness with you so you can add some exercise in your day.

Here’s how The Angry Bird Workout Plan works: it’s deceptively simple – only four major movements.

  • Body weight squats
  • Push ups
  • Pull ups (or bent over rows or inverted rows)
  • Planks

Each exercise will have MANY different levels based on your ability and level of fitness.

Depending on how much time you have during the day, you can do your whole workout at once, or break up your workout into four different sessions throughout the day (with each session being ONE of the exercises).  You can even split the workout across two days if you have to: squats and push ups on Monday, and then pull ups and planks on Tuesday.

Here’s a sample day:

  • Wake up, do 40 jumping jacks to warm up, and then do body weight squats.
  • At lunch, you grab your suitcase and do bent over rows.
  • After work, you do another 50 jumping jacks and then do your push ups.
  • After dinner, you do your planks while watching TV.

How it works

Your goal is to do the required number of reps for your level in two sets or less. Just like in Angry Birds, you can award yourself a star rating based on how you did.  For the full guide to the Angry Bird workout go to-  http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/AngryBirdsWorkout.xls
