Halloween Workouts: Get your Sweat On using just a Pumpkin

In a season where you can find pumpkin in just about everything, why not add a little pumpkin into your workouts as well? Check out these two pumpkin workout videos by our Bowflex Ambassadors, Spartan Spencer and Anna "MomStrong" Arsenault, that you can use to offset the extra Halloween candy that you "confiscated" from your kids.

This pumpkin workout from Spartan Spencer will have you sweating in no time:

This Halloween workout includes these exercises:

  • Overhead Squats (10 reps) - Lift the pumpkin over your head and hold it up while you do squats.
  • Pumpkin Carry (25-50 yards down and back) - Pick up the pumpkin and jog with it 25-50 yards down and back.
  • Pumpkin Decline Push-ups (10 reps) - Set the pumpkin on the ground, get in the push-up position with your feet up on the pumpkin, and start doing push-ups.
  • Push-up Pumpkin Hop (5 reps) - Keep the pumpkin on the ground and stand to one side of it. Get down and do a push-up, then stand up and side jump over the pumpkin so you land on the other side of it. Repeat while jumping back and forth to the opposite sides of the pumpkin.

Repeat these exercises for as many rounds as possible within 15-30 minutes, depending on how much time you have.

And here's a great pumpkin exercise for the whole family from Anna “MomStrong” Arsenault:
