Happy (almost) Halloween!
These pumpkin protein bars are the perfect treat for if you’re trying to avoid eating mounds of Halloween candy this weekend—or, they’ll also work as a snack while you’re running around trick-or-treating
The honey in them will give you an instant burst of energy, while the good carbs and protein will help keep you full and satisfied. Plus, pumpkins are filled with all kinds of good stuff, including loads of Vitamin A (promotes healthy vision and immune health), Vitamin C (cardiovascular and immune health), Vitamin E (healthy skin), and fiber (helps fill you up, among other things), so even though they taste pretty decadent, they’re actually really good for you.
Workout type: 12 minute
I’m sure you already know that planks are one of the best exercises you can do to work your core. Not only are planks really versatile and travel-friendly, they also work more than 20 muscles, including your abdominal muscles, obliques, shoulders, quads, glutes, and more.
I don’t know about you though, but I can’t imagine anything more boring than just hanging out in a basic plank for minutes upon end. Sure, static holds are great to include in your training (which is why I often include them as a bonus for after your workout), but dang can they get boring pretty quickly.
