The Halloween-Themed Workout You Should Do Today

Halloween gets a bad reputation for being an unhealthy holiday full of sugary goodies and cauldrons of candy. And, ok, that's not all false -- here's how to burn some calories if you've had a few too many pieces of candy.

Do three rounds of this workout and you'll be feeling extra confident in your costume.

1. Mummy Walks

Warm up your body with some mummy walks: Stand tall and put your arms out in front of you, palms down (like a monster), and kick your legs up to your hands while taking large steps across the room. Repeat 20 times, alternating legs (10 each side). On the way back, do 20 alternating lunges.

2. Grave Risers

Lay on the floor with your legs extended. Sit up slowly and reach your arms to touch your toes. Repeat 20 times.

3. Zombie Crawls

Stand up. Bend over slightly and begin walking your hands forward, slowly moving into a plank. Hold the plank for a few seconds and start walking your hands back to your feet until you are in another forward bend. Stand back up. Repeat 10-12 times.

4. Goblin Squats

Stand up. Holding a kettlebell in your hands by the horns close to your chest, begin to squat down until your hamstrings are on your calves. Keep your head up and your back straight. Return to standing position. Repeat 10-12 times.

5. Flying Witch

Lying on your stomach with arms and legs extended, simultaneously raise your arms, legs, and chest off of the floor. Squeeze your lower back and hold the position for 2 seconds. Return to starting position. Repeat 15-20 times.
