Jack-O-Lantern: Your New Exercise Buddy

Learn the role of exercise during the 5 Day Pouch Test:
The 5 Day Pouch Test: Express Study Guide

We know that Daily Exercise is Rule #4 of Weight Loss Surgery. But daily exercise can become monotonous. The folks at HuffPost Healthy Living have a fun workout perfect for Halloween. A full body workout with your good buddy Jack-O-Lantern. You can see the whole thing online and get moving today. Here's more from the article:
"Here are just a few ways to use your pumpkin to get a full-body workout. Costume changes not required." HuffPost Healthy Living

Halloween means candy and costumes, but it also brings an abundance of pumpkins to seemingly every grocery store and front stoop. Sure, you can cook them and carve them, but why not use them to switch up your workout, too?

As long as you pick a pumpkin that's not too heavy (and not too light!), that gourd can give you just as good of a workout as any old medicine ball, kettlebell or set of dumbbells.

Check out the article here, on HuffPost Healthy Living, complete with cute and short Vine videos of each exercise.
