One year ago I created a Halloween Workout that is a quick and intense workout using 2 pumpkins and 2 bails of hay. My point was to prove that you can achieve an incredible workout any time and anywhere. Another key point is to have fun with your fitness program. Lack of equipment, space, or time should never hold you back from achieving your dream body. Let’s revisit this fun and effective workout shall we…
The exercise routine is interval training in nature. I grouped a few resistance training exercises with a short bout of cardio training. The entire session took about 10 minutes and had me sweating as you will see in the video.

These pumpkins were only 10 pounds and you could easily increase the intensity by using heavier pumpkins or increasing the duration of the cardio interval segments. You could also hold the pumpkins while doing the squats, lunges, or even during the interval segment of your Halloween workout.
Not to mention that you could do the entire circuit 2 times if you are in good shape.
If you celebrate Halloween and use bails of hay and aren’t sure what to do with your decorative pumpkins have a little fun and create your own exercise routine with them.
I encourage you to be creative with your training. Have fun with your programs. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Get outdoors and enjoy being active in the fresh air.
And by the way I like to keep my videos real and show the human side of me. While making this workout video my daughter was crying because she had a runny nose. No I wasn’t ignoring her, my wife was right there taking care of her 😉
