Scare Away Candy Calories with the Halloween Workout!

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Boo! Don't be scared of Halloween candy calories! Burn them off the fun way with this fast Halloween-themed cardio circuit workout. Perform each movement in the circuit for one minute straight before moving on to the next move. (If you need a demo for any of the movements, scroll down and click on its corresponding link below the image.) There are a total of ten moves, so the whole workout should take you exactly ten minutes. If you want an extra challenge, you can do the circuit 2-3 times through for a real calorie-scorching session! You can make this as low-intensity or high-intensity as you want, depending on how quickly you move during each exercise. Bonus: There is no equipment required, and it's great for small spaces!

Note: For the single-leg movements ("Boo-ty Blaster" and "Spooky Side Kick"), work one leg for 30 seconds and switch to the other leg for the remaining 30 seconds. 

Try this quick circuit for your workout today—if you dare! Tell us how you liked it in the comments. Don't forget to Pin, Like, and Tweet to share with your friends! PS: If you're feeling extra festive, turn up these 15 Spooky Workout Songs while you sweat.

The moves are good, but I prefer watching and keeping up with a video. Plus...as I tried to play the songs, most were unavailable. Report
