Even the most active guy needs a break now and then. That’s why at Russell Athletic, we say take it easy on Thanksgiving. The way we see it, unless you’re taking part in a friendly game of two-hand touch with the family, there’s no don’t need to exercise anything but your appetite. Just load up on Turkey, stuffing and all the fixin’s, then fall asleep watching football. (It’s what the Pilgrims would have wanted.)
Once the Turkey Day is over, however, it’s go time. You may have packed in some extra calories over the holiday, but Thankfully that doesn’t mean you have pack on extra pounds. Just throw in a couple of extra workouts, instead.
Thanksgiving is a great time to go the gym. Come January first, you’ll have to wait in line for a treadmill like it’s a theme park roller coaster. But on Thanksgiving weekend, the crowd at most gyms will be pretty light. That’ll make it easy for you to pop in, get a good workout in and leave.
If the weather’s nice, you also might want to go for a hike or a run. It could be your last chance for a while. This time of year it’s dark by the time most of us get off work. That makes it tough to exercise outside. Fortunately, Thanksgiving weekend offers a rare chance to get out during the day and take in some fresh air. You might not want to pass it up.
But whether you decide to workout in the gym, or take it outside, Russell Athletic is with you. Our line of workout clothes for men covers nearly every training condition there is. For indoor or warm weather workouts, Russell Athletic shorts and sleeveless shirts are perfect.
For chilly outdoor workouts, nothing beats Russell Athletic Technical Performance pants and hoodies. These high-tech mens sweats feature Dri-Power technology, which pulls moisture away from your skin and lets it evaporate. That helps you better regulate your heat throughout your workout, so you’re never too warm or too cold. And when you’re in the middle of a long holiday run, that’s something you’ll definitely be thankful for.
