Thanksgiving is upon us! With side dishes galore, desserts aplenty, and a giant turkey to dig into, this day of feasting presents ambitious lifters with the ultimate chance to grow. Don't just sit on the couch as pounds pile on to your waistline; use your Turkey Day food to fuel an epic workout and even more extreme gains! Kick the couch and crush the gym this year, the year of #gainsgiving2015.
Trust us: If you want to have the best combination of feast and beast on Turkey Day, you've got to train. Instead of slumping over on the sofa after a few too many helpings of Grandma’s mashed potatoes, hit the gym pre- or post-pigout to spark some serious growth. Squat for your stuffing, press for your pie, and add a few plates to the bar so you can use every bite of bird to power your bench.
Still not convinced to lift on Turkey Day? How about a little incentive from Kaged Muscle? Take a photo or video of your holiday workout and tag #gainsgiving2015, @bodybuildingcom, and @kagedmusclesupps on social media for a chance to win one of three Kaged Muscle Pre-Intra-Post Stacks!
