A Killer Trick or Treat Halloween Workout
Workout your inner skeleton this October 31st with our murderous Trick or Treat Halloween Workout. This Xercise4Less fitness guide will target and tone your arms, core, back and glutes without slashing you completely to shreds. Consign your Halloween sweets to a bubbling cauldron during this 15 minute workout as you blow away the cobwebs and put the frighteners on fat.
Caution. This workout may involve the use of a broomstick. It is Halloween after all!
1: Call On this Ghostbusters Halloween Exercise
For this Xercise4Less workout make sure you perform each Halloween-inspired exercise for one minute. For the Ghostbuster, that’s 30 seconds per leg. Rest for 30 seconds and repeat the scary workout for three rounds.
The Halloween Ghostbuster or lateral lunge will completely terrify your glutes, abductors, adductors and quads into submission. Start with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes pointed straight forward. Step out with your right foot as wide as possible. Engage through the right heel as you drop your hips down and back. Keep your left leg straight while stretching the groin on the left leg and maintaining both soles on the ground and toes pointed straight. Punch your right heel into the floor to push yourself back to the full standing start position. That’s one rep. You may be white as a sheet by the time you’re finished this Xercise4Less gym workout!
2: Dancing Skeleton
Ward off the evil chocolate spirits with a Xercise4Less Dancing Skeleton workout. This standing crunch will work your obliques while improving your balance and stability. Stand with your feet shoulders-width apart, toes facing forward, and your hands on your hips. Engage your abs as you tilt your pelvis forward as if you’re trying to bring your hips up to your chest. Then, tilt your pelvis backward to stick out your butt as you bring your shoulders back and chest forward. Return to starting position for one rep. A wickedly tough workout exercise.
3: Shortcut Your Road to Fitness with a Halloween Slasher
This fitness workout would make a fabulous scary movie, but the Halloween Slasher really takes it up to a whole new level of fear.
Stand with your feet hip-width apart holding a dumbbell in left hand. Extend your left arm overhead, aligning your wrist above the shoulder. Step back with the left foot while simultaneously lowering your left arm. Bend both knees, performing a reverse lunge while lowering the dumbbell towards the ground. Reverse the movement, stepping your left foot back to return to the starting position. A fat-scything workout exercise from Xercise4Less gyms for your fitness demons.
4: The Spook-tacularly Helpful Monster Walk
A spine-tingling workout for your abductors, the Monster Walk or Band Walk uses a band to get your muscles working scarily hard.
Place a band around both ankles and another around both knees. There should be enough tension that the bands are tight when your feet are shoulder width apart. Begin by taking short steps forward alternating your left and right foot. After several steps, do just the opposite and walk backward to where you started. You may feel fiendishly tired after this Halloween workout.
5: Fitness Toil and Trouble with the Grave Riser
We weren’t joking about the broomstick. So, grab a broomstick in your local Xercise4Less gym for the Grave Riser workout. No, really.
Start by lying flat on your back with your hands on both ends of the broomstick in front of you and your feet flexed. As you slowly raise your upper body off the ground, keep your legs straight and pinned to the floor. Make sure you tuck your chin to your chest as you come up. That’s one Grave Riser rep.
