Burn Off Halloween Candy Calories With A Pumpkin Workout!

Halloween Workout

Before you decide to throw out your carved pumpkins put them to use on a great workout!  Don’t let the guilt of the calories from eating candy get you down.  A little change in your workout is good, so try using a pumpkin in lieu of hitting the weight room.  There are so many fun exercises you can do at home with a pumpkin!

Exercise ideas:

  • Push-ups with both hands on top of the pumpkin
  • Goblet squats with lifting the pumpkin over-head when standing
  • Side lunges holding pumpkin for weight
  • Twisting lunges while holding and moving the pumpkin side-to-side
  • Seated Russian twist holding and moving the pumpkin side-to-side
  • Sit-ups while holding the pumpkin for weight

The exercises are limitless!
