Here in Australia Halloween gets a little overlooked. Surprise your bootcampers with the fun workout. You can of course sub medballs in for pumpkins.
For those celebrating, I hope you get to meet some cool ghosts and stuff.
Thanks to Jess Dietrich of Destination Fit for the workout.
The Halloween Workout
Today I put my boot campers through a special halloween workout (complete with pumpkins!). They loved it so I thought I would share it here.
I divided the group into 2 and made them run relay style across the park with the pumpkin. I mixed it up having them run with the pumpkin above their head, in their right arm/left arm etc
Standing in a line pass the pumpkin over your head to the person behind and then under between your legs to the next person along the line. When the pumpkin reaches the end the person runs back to the start of the line and it starts again.
I set up a circuit with the following exercises which we completed twice:
- Chest press with bridge hold (pumpkin)
- Star jumps
- Squat press (pumpkin)
- Pumpkin bent over row
- Zombie run (shuttle run)– backwards
- Russian twist (pumpkin)
- Zombie run- skipping
- Walk the plank (plank to hands and back)
- Frankenstein walk
- Zombie run – lunge walk
- Park lap (timekeeper)
I had 2 plastic skeletons cut up into pieces which I had under cones around the park. I put the group into two teams and one person from each team had to run out to collect a skeleton piece, the first team to present me with a full skeleton was the winner.
I run boot camps in Bathurst, NSW under the name Destination Fit. I focus on beginner clients aiming to get them moving again after being out of exercise for a long time.
