I love creating holiday-themed workouts and I thought Halloween was the perfect time for TWO Halloween-themed workouts…an indoor treadmill workout and a do anywhere bodyweight workout. You never know when that Halloween candy will have thinking, “I need to stop, drop and sweat!” (Maybe never? That’s okay too!) Also, the days are getting shorter and cooler so I know that many of us jump on the treadmill more often this time of year.
Spooky 2s Sprint + Climb Treadmill Workout
I get so bored running a flat road on the treadmill so I turn to intervals of climbs and sprints to make these interesting. All I gotta say is…good luck with this one! I think you’ll feel a bit like a zombie at the end of it. I’ve got increasing inclines interspersed with moderate runs and sprints for 32 minutes of treadmill terror…I mean fun. I’m not prescribing speeds because I think that it’s so different for everyone. Rather, I want you to try to work within the target intensity I’ve described. For some, a moderate run might be a 6.0 where for others that’s a sprint…and that’s totally okay! Make this workout work for you!
*Note: if the last jog at 10% feels like too much, make it a walk. You’ll still get a great burn from the heavy incline walk.
**Another note: I like to increase the speed on my sprints each round so that my last sprint is my fastest but that’s totally up to you!
Boo Bodyweight Workout
This Boo Bodyweight Workout features 31 reps of 10 different exercises that include upper body, lower body, plyometrics and core work. You’ll get a good amount of cardio in here along with your strength. You can repeat this workout one time through or go for two rounds if you’re feeling extra ambitious! You’ve seen most of these exercises in past workouts but let me know if you have questions about any of them or about modifications. I’m always happy to help!
