Halloween special | The yummy mummy workout

October 24, 2016

It’s the scariest month of the year and time again for the traditional Polar Halloween Workout – a scarily effective full-body workout you can do at home, at the office or the haunted mansion at the end of the road. We call it the Yummy Mummy Halloween Workout KX900! We chose mummies because:

  • Mummies in movies have fantastic core strength.
  • Mummies have an impeccable sense of style.
  • Mummies don’t get nearly enough screen time nowadays.

All you need for this workout is a kettle bell and a few rolls of toilet paper for the shroud.

Okay, Edward (we call him Edward), take it away!

How to do the exercises

  • Perform the exercises as a circuit.
  • If you’re a beginner, do 2–3 circuits: 30 seconds per exercise with 15–30 seconds of rest between exercises. Rest for 1 minute after each full circuit.
  • If you’re more advanced, do 3–4 circuits: 45 seconds per exercise with 15 seconds of rest between exercises. Rest for 1 minute after each full circuit.
  • Choose a weight that allows you to complete each exercise with good technique.

1. X-Boo-rbee

2. Creepy pushup

3. 1-leg undeadlift

4. Still kickin’ and swingin’

5. Undeadlift

6. Pass between the legs (and the other side)

7. Haunted figure eight

BONUS Exercise: The mummy getup

The last gruelling full-body exercise is a bonus for the bravest and most advanced ghouls, mummies and zombies. You don’t have to include the bonus exercise in your circuit.

Thanks to personal trainer Mikko Niiranen for this ghouler than ghoul workout.
