Halloween is creeping just around the corner—are you ready for it?
The spooky season is all about letting loose, having a little ghoulish fun, and candy (lots of candy). But, if you’re in the beating heart of a weight loss journey, all the temptations can prove too much.
While Halloween can be downright torturous if you’re trying to cut the calories, you get through it while getting involved in the festivities.
One of the best ways to enjoy a little candy (or pumpkin pie. Yum) while feeling good is to get moving. Even if you’re strapped for time, it’s possible to get those limbs moving like a caffeine-filled zombie. And, we’ve got just the thing.
This duo of devious workout routines will have you gasping for breath.
Try them…if you dare.
TOP TIP: Get your body and get the monstrous workout motivation you need by tuning into our official Halloween workout playlist…
The ‘Crazy Core Creeper’
First up, we’ve got a little workout called the ‘Crazy Core Creeper.’ You don’t need any special gym equipment to pull this off—just a little space and around 15 minutes of your time.
What to do…
Perform each of these exercises for one minute twice over. Take a 30-second to one-minute break between each set. Then, take a giant glug of water.
- Guillotine crunches (start vertical and slowly crunch upwards until your hands touch your toes)
- The classic plank of horror
- Nasty plank knee taps (go as slow as possible for added agony)
- Spooky side taps
- Bleeding bent leg planks (again, the slower you go, the more horrific the exercise)
Full Body ‘Zombie Blaster’
If you’re looking for a workout that will make you fit and fearless for even the most severe of zombie apocalypse, this is the one for you. Again, you don’t need any specialist gym equipment for this one—just a spare 15 minutes and the will to survive.
What to do…
If you’ve managed to get through the ‘Crazy Core Creeper’ in one piece, take a breath. Collect yourself, and get going. Again, perform each of these gruelling body movements for one minute twice over. And make sure you have a little break between each set.
- Pumpkin press-ups (like regular press-ups, but extra slow—and thinking about pumpkin pie)
- Deadly dips (use a table, chairs, kitchen sideboards or any surface that will hold your weight)
- Butt to the floor, ‘goblin’ squats
- Cramping calf raises
- Soul-crushing standing crunches
