Before we get this post started, I have to announce that I finally got with the times and made a Facebook page for KRFF last night. If you like me, then please….well, “Like” me.
Thanks, friends. Now, onto today’s topic!
Halloween is almost here, who’s excited?!? Actually, If I’m being completely honest, I’m not all that excited. Halloween is probably my least favorite holiday. I know that’s no fun at all, but I can’t help it. People are constantly shoving candy at you and everywhere you look there are cobweb decorations and creepy masks. I just think there are so many better holidays that don’t involve decorating with insects and scaring people.
BUT I’m not a total scrooge, so in the spirit of being a joiner I’ve come up with a fun workout for you all. It’s called the Killer (get it? Halloween scary theme) Legs Halloween Kettlebell Circuit. I couldn’t be more creative if I tried. Literally, I couldn’t.
We still haven’t decided what we’ll be doing for Halloween this weekend. Our neighborhood doesn’t get much in the way of trick-or-treaters so I still haven’t bought any candy on the off chance we won’t even be home. I’m sure Riley would love to have leftover candy, but I could do without it. That and I like the weird candies that no one else wants to eat. Remember when you’d sit around with your friends after going trick-or-treating and trade candy with each other? Well, I was the kid who took all the Smarties.
And these delicious, chalk-y goodies.
Everyone hated Necco wafers, but I love ’em. All of that’s to say it’s probably best if I don’t end up having to buy candy. I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority on this one, but there you have it.
Luckily, this workout will help with your candy problem if things go overboard. The workout is quick, but it gets to the point and will work your legs nice and hard. The best part is you can adapt it to your workout level by increasing or decreasing the weight of the kettlebell. Enjoy!
Here are links to some of the moves you may not be familiar with:
- Squats to side leg raise – Except holding the kettlebell at chest level and not cranking your neck back like in the video.
- One-legged deadlift
- Figure eights
You can push through each circuit without breaks for a challenge, or pause for 30 seconds between each move. Just depends on your level/mood.
*Keep in mind that I’m not a certified personal trainer. These workouts are once that I do personally and may or may not work for you. Always check with a professional before starting a new workout routine!
