Just sleep four more times … then it is Halloween. That is why you can find them everywhere: The pumpkins. From them you can not only carve creepy illuminated pumpkin heads or cook delicious soups. No, you can also do a wonderful full body workout with pumpkins. So, what are you waiting for? Go and get the pumpkins!
Heavy & sweaty
Someone´s sitting in a fieldHELLOWEEN
Never giving yield
Sitting there with gleaming eyes
Waiting for big pumpkin to arise…
I don’t have glowing eyes, but I wait until the big pumpkin rises. Or is raised by me. It weighs a proud 2.4 kilograms. Not quite light. But about the weight a medicine ball should have for a trained woman. After all, we want to “carve” a little on our body. And that can only be “heavy” and “sweaty”.
Speaking of heavy, here is our playlist for today. We will of course be accompanied by Helloween, which fits to the theme perfectly!
And if once we are really “sweaty”, we need of course a “cool” cool down. We listen to the following cool songs:
The medicine ball aka pumpkin
As I told you, my medicine ball aka pumpkin weighs 2.4 kilograms. Just the right weight. Because for trained ladies the medicine ball should weigh between 2 and 3 kilograms. Men choose a weight between 3 and 5 kilograms. Training beginners start with 1 to 2 kilograms. Please make sure that the weight matches your fitness level. “Sweaty” should be the name of the game, but not so much “heavy”. Just like Speed-Power-Metal is…
Power. That is also what the medicine ball aka pumpkin contributes to. To build up strength. It also improves endurance and speed. The additional weight creates instability, which especially demands the center of our body. The muscles of the abdomen and the lower back have to provide a balancing stability and so the training with a medicine ball aka pumpkin is an excellent core training. Not to mention the strengthening effect for the muscles, which are stimulated in the individual exercises.
Happy Sweaty EXERCISES
You can find the Happy Sweaty Halloween EXERCISES directly under EXERCISES. If you don’t want it “sweaty” but just “stretchy”, you can also train the Happy Stretchy Halloween COOL DOWN simply as a stretching unit.
Go and get the pumpkins!
And now do something for your Mr. Ego and try Mr. Torture, because it’s Halloween and you should train until you think I want out! Why? So there’s no fat left on you, otherwise Gorgar will eat you… or Dr. Stein will turn you into a monster.
In this sense: Stay trained, stretched and tuned!
