Finding motivation to get active on a holiday can be tough, but working out on Halloween doesn’t have to be scary. I’ve said this time and time again, but one of my favorite ways to spice up my exercise routine is to complete a themed workout every now and then. If you need a little push this week, try these Halloween Workout Moves on for size. Dressing up isn’t required, but it’s definitely encouraged.
Catwoman Plank Pikes
Get into plank position on your elbows. Engaging your core, lift your hips to form a “V”, without bending at the knees. Your head should drop between your arms as your lift yourself up, so that your neck and back are aligned. Slowly lower yourself back into the plank position. Repeat!
Batman Squat Punches
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your fists protecting your face. Squat down, keeping your weight in your heels. Punch with your right fist and then return to standing. Squat down and punch with your left fist. That’s one rep.
Spiderman Push Ups
Get into standard pushup position. Lower your body to the floor, while simultaneously lifting your right foot off the floor and reaching your knee toward your elbow. As you push your body back up, place your right foot back behind you. Repeat with your left leg. That’s one rep.
Hulk Med Ball Smashes
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lift a medicine ball directly overhead. With your arms slightly bent, slam the ball into the ground as forcefully as possible. Pick up the ball and repeat!
Superman Back Extensions
Lie facedown with your arms stretched out in front of you. Squeeze your lower back muscles, lifting your chest and legs off of the floor. Pause then slowly lower your chest and legs back toward the ground. This move is one of my favorites to use toward the end a workout!
While you’re training for Halloween, don’t forget to pack a healthy snack because all that candy will cause you to crash. See how our spoon tuna pouch can give you that boost you need.
