Happy Halloween everybody!
Are you stuck at home tonight handing out candy to all the cute little trick or treaters? Are you going to be missing your regular workout tonight because it’s Halloween?
Then you’re in luck.
I’ve put together a “Trick or Treat” workout for you that you can do at home in between knocks at the door. All you’ll need is some space to move, a pair of hand weights, an exercise mat and this handy workout sheet I whipped up to make life a bit easier.

Next you simply wait for the trick or treaters to start coming. Make sure you take note of what all the kids are dressed up as, and once they leave check the chart to see if you need to do any exercises, and if you do now is the time to bust them out before there are more knocks on the door!
Here is the full list as seen on the printable workout:
Superman = 5 supermen back extensions (hold each extension for 5 seconds)
Iron Man = 3 Tuck Jumps
Batman/Bat Girl = 10 Reverse Crunches
Captain America = 15 Jumping (or Heel) Jacks
Spiderman = 2 Spiderman pushups (2 on the right, two to the left for 4 total)
All other Super Heroes = 5 Burpees
A Ballerina = 10 Plie Squats
ANY Princess = 5 Curtsy Lunges
A Witch or Wizard (Including any Harry Potter Characters) = 10 Reverse Flyes
An Angry Bird = 5 Wood Chops on each side (for a total of 10)
A Vampire (including any Twilight Characters) = 30 second High Knee Run
A Warewolf = 10 pushups
Any Cats or Dogs = 10 Donkey Kicks (5 per leg)
Any Celebrity = 20 second Plank
Any kids/teen NOT in costume = 15 V Sit
So you could get lucky and not have to do any exercises between trick or treaters, or you could end up doing a LOT of exercises.
But to make things more fun, at the end of the night you will add up how many trick or treater you had all together and do 1 mountain climber for each tricker or treater.
Fun right? No? Well do it anyway 😉
Just think of it this way, if you do this workout while handing out treats, it will help cancel out some of those treats you eat yourself (come on, we all do it!).
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!
