Scary Halloween Challenge Workout

Happy Halloween, athletes!

Yes, that is a photo of me (center) and my best friends Ellisa (left) and Iris (right) when we were in preschool. I have no idea whose idea it was to dress me up like a joker (or am I supposed to be a clown?), especially when everyone else in the room appears to be in tutus…

Anyway, it’s Halloween today, and you know what that means: lots of candy, Halloween treats, and specialty alcoholic drinks for the 21 and over crowd. And what else? You guessed it…

A scary Halloween challenge workout!

I like to do challenge workouts on holidays because it seems extra fun and also because you’re more likely to eat more on these days than on regular days. So work hard, have fun, and go scare some ghosts later!

Here’s your workout:


Workout equipment:

Workout type: Challenge

Timer setting: Stopwatch

Repeat 3x:

20 Step ups (with sandbag or holding dumbbells)
10 Pull ups
20 Burpees
20 Twisted hanging knee raises
20 Squat jumps

My time for today’s workout: 14:15

  1. Been splashing around different workouts here and there along with making my own routine for optimum periodization. This is the first I’ve done on this site and had a lot of fun doing it! Will spread the word, I set up my high intensity/cutting period workouts similar to how you do it. Can’t wait to continue…


  2. This wasn’t scary, it was terrifying!!! I seriously thought I was going to die. 15:48 because in round 2 and 3 I had to catch my breath after 10 burpees and then continue with the other 10. Reverse push-ups (finally got myself a dip station. Yay!) instead of pull-ups. And now half-dead, but proud, and no candy to reward myself with! A juicy apple will have to do 😉
