Halloween workout!

30 Oct

I am so excited about this . . . but also keep changing my mind! I have my playlist — it’s a mix of current pop songs and some classic Halloween hits (Thriller, Monster Mash, Addams Family and a remix of Like a G6 [did anyone else think that song was about mac and cheese sticks?]). So, playlist done.

On to the workout.

Warm up:

  1. zombie kick runs (arms and legs stay straight)
  2. demon drags (drag feet behind on plates)
  3. tip toe ghost squats (squats on tip toes)
  4. deadman burpees (at the bottom, go all the way to the ground)
  5. rise from the dead roll ups (basic pilates style roll up but stan
    d up, arms stay out front)
  6. monster jumps (tuck jumps. with screams)

Circuit 1: 7 exercises of doom, 7 reps. repeat after Tabata slaughter 3-5 reps

  1. burpee
  2. push ups
  3. burpee with push up
  4. squats
  5. squat jumps
  6. roll backs with tuck jumps
  7. burpee + push up + squat + tuck jump

Circuit 2: Medicine Ball (pretend it’s a pumpkin) circuit 50/10

  1. supine plank (hold ball in one hand)
  2. burpee + spiderman pushup
  3. reverse lunge with OH chop
  4. jump lunge with MB toss
  5. mt climbers
  6. repeat supine plank, ball in other hand

Circuit 3: Tabata slaughter

  1. DB Swings
  2. Burpees with side to side jumps

5 Min Finisher: AMRAP — as many rounds as possible

  1. Burpee/Mt Climber (2)
  2. Split Squat (2/leg)
  3. Push ups one arm on step (2)
  4. Jump squats (2)
  5. Skaters (2)

The Ab Gauntlet

  1. squat thrust 20 sec
  2. prisoner squats 20 sec
  3. squat thrust 20 sec

I seem to be off on my timing these days — if there’s not enough time, I’ll cut the Ab Gauntlet, maybe the Tabata Slaughter. I’d like to do circuit 1 two times through. Maybe at the end ???

Updated ***
So my timing was UNDER! We ended up doing about 3 MB partner suicides and then circuit 1 again, all 7 reps.

I really don’t think it was very hard! I’m losing my mind – I want it to be hard – I just don’t feel like I’m working very hard or asking others to … Feeling a little frustrated!
