Pumpkin Workouts Are a Gourd-Tastic Way to Keep Trim

This is the most season-appropriate exercise you can do.

As we glide toward Halloween and then sail into Thanksgiving, your workout may consist of lifting your fork to put another piece of pumpkin pie to your mouth, but you could put that gourd to much better use.

That’s because pumpkin pie workouts are a thing. Bet that’s something you didn’t know about Halloween, huh? They’re so much a thing that ABC featured them on Good Morning America.

Like a good recipe for that irresistible pumpkin pie, though, the secret is out. Scores of fitness enthusiasts have caught on to the idea that exercising with a pumpkin is a genius idea, not to mention a novel way to break the monotony that may sink in with your normal routine. Who wouldn’t want to lift an orange pumpkin instead of that same ol’ kettle bell, right?

Take a look below at some of the workouts below and then get your butt to a pumpkin patch to pick your ideal weight (you’re already spending a ton on Halloween, already) so you could work up a good sweat in your battle of the bulge.

7 Deadly Sins Pumpkin Workout 7 exercises ✔️ 7 Reps ✔️ 7 Rounds ✔️ Okay, listen up. This may seem like a joke because I’m throwing around a pumpkin (which I’ll admit is pretty funny!) BUT this is actually a really tough workout. It may not be sports bra weather but I’m still working out outside in my @reebokuk Reflect Your Strength winter wear ❄️ Complete 7 reps of each exercise (reps are per side on unilateral exercise!) and do the entire circuit 7 times round. Let’s go 1️⃣ Reverse Lunges w/ rotation 2️⃣ Squat thruster 3️⃣ Romanian twists 4️⃣ Kneel to squat 5️⃣ Single arm push press or Option B over head press if your pumpkin is too big. 6️⃣ Tricep extension 7️⃣ Lateral jump squat Ps. I hope you appreciate my choice of music #hazelwallace #thefoodmedic #thefoodmedicbook #thefoodmedicworkout #halloweenworkout #pumpkinworkout
