If you’re like us, you save guilt for places of worship and go all-out on Thanksgiving. But a little premeal workout never hurt anyone. Here’s a mix to prep your stomach for the feast of a lifetime.

I Wanted to Tell Her,” by Holy Ghost
(If you’re still couch bound after the first five seconds, seek help or just up the volume.)

Get Up,” by Kwes

(You will be — if you do a little prefeast prep at the gym.)

I Want Tonight,” by John Talabot
(Get shimmying.)

Two Different Ways,” by Factory Floor
(Pop this into the middle of your workout for when you start to drag. Sure beats a triple-shot pumpkin spice latte.)

End of Time,” by Beyoncé

Skip Work,” by Archie Powell & The Exports
(The future backbone of your motivation mix.)

Tell Her No,” by Tennis
(A holiday mix must, it adds modern toughness and cool to a classic.)

Find Your Love,” by Drake

Georgia,” by Yuck
