These workouts are inspired by horror movies because we all sit there and yell at the screen as we watch these D rated or even the mainstream movies. And as Sydney once said in Scream, “she should be running to the front door instead of upstairs” We are going to test out that theory here.
Nightmare on Elm Street is not safe here as this movie takes place in your nightmares or a dream. You think you cant outrun a crazy maniac with knives for hands, especially when he’s in dreamland. But when Nancy Thompson brought him out for those special 15 minutes she did try to outrun him while setting off booby traps all over the house.
He’s outside… in the real world now. He doesn’t have the dream world powers. Basically if you know how to fight, you can just kick his glove off, and he’s fair game. So here’s your first workout. We all know the running part of the challenge. You can either do it before the workout or after the workout. But there is some running. The workout itself is for your fight against the final boss on October 31st.
Do 4 sets and rest 1 minute in between sets.
10 Squats with military press extension (your choice of weights or resistance bands)
10 push ups
10 jump squats
15 push ups
15 jump squats
20 knee lifts
If you like, you can increase the reps to 5 after each set. Dont forget to hydrate and stretch after the workouts and your cardio is to do a run before or after the workout. Its your choice if you want to warm up and cool down after these workouts by doing a one mile run.
