Movie Marathon Game (Cardio Workout)
With Halloween on the horizon, and seasons starting earlier and earlier - it's already horror movie season! Looking for a simple way to stay active while you binge on some Halloween movie classics this month? Check out this fun, fitness-inspired Horror Movie Marathon Game that will have you up and moving (and screaming…seriously). Most importantly, have a good time!
- Chase Scene
High Knees (or run in place) – Perform high knees, or run in place until the chase scene ends!
- Fight Scene
Boxers – Perform boxers until the fight scene ends! Starting with feet hip-width apart and knees bent, keep elbows in and extend one arm forward and the other back, as if you're throwing punches!
- Jump Scare Scene
10 Jumping Jacks – Every time there is a scene that makes you jump, perform 10 jumping jacks!
- The Phone Rings
10 crunches – Every time somebody picks up a phone, perform 10 crunches! Lie on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place hands behind head. Tilt chin slightly. Gently pull your abdominals inward, curling up and forward so that the head, neck and shoulder blades lift off the floor.
- Every Time You See the Monster/Killer
The Pilates "100" – 20 pumps. Lie on your back with your knees bent, then lift your feet off the floor into table top position. Point your toes, and extend your legs straight and forward. With your arms straight out by your side, begin pumping your arms up and down.
- Every Time Somebody Screams
10 squats (and let out a scream at the bottom of every squat) – Stand with hands on the back of your head and your feet shoulder-width apart. Lower your body until thighs are parallel to the floor.
- Every Time a Car Doesn't Start
Arm Circles and Calf Raises – perform arm circles and calf raises until the car finally starts!
- Every Time Somebody Says "Halloween"
20 Butt Kicks – Don't overthink it. Just run in place and kick your butt!
- Every Time a Group Splits Up
50 Arm Circles – Every time a group decides that their smartest (dumbest) option is to split up, perform this exercise!
REST! Grab some water. Or if you're a maniac, perform a plank or wall sit.
