Corpus Christi, TX, October 25, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Local fitness expert and owner of Pinnacle Performance and Fitness Adam Farrell, loves to piggyback on current events to invigorate his team transformation training programs. This Halloween, Farrell will be holding its 10th annual Freaky Fat Loss Halloween Charity Workout on October 26th at 9am.
For each participant that shows up, Farrell will donate $5 to the Family Counseling Services to help raise awareness for mental health in South Texas. To gain admission to the Freaky Fat Loss Fundraiser Workout each participant must donate at least $10. The event is open to the public. Attendees will don Halloween costumes while performing pumpkin exercises using a medium to large pumpkin. 100% of the funds raised will go to Family Counseling Services.
Farrell explains, “You can approach Halloween one of two ways. The first option is to go nuts with all of the eats and treats. The second is to indulge in moderation and offset any extra caloric consumption with a seasonal pumpkin workout. I recommend the latter—it’s a lot more figure-friendly!”
Pumpkins can be used just like medicine balls for an unlimited number of exercise options. Farrell likes to take it one step further and use total body exercises that combine upper body, lower body, and core movements into one efficient exercise that maximizes fat burning.
Farrell has provided his top three total body pumpkin exercises that guarantee to help you burn fat and build muscle in minimal time. He recommends performing at least one circuit of the following three pumpkin exercises, with little to no rest between movements, for every Halloween treat you eat.
1) Pumpkin Swings: Holding a pumpkin in your hands with your arms extended, stay on your heels and hinge back at your hips while bringing the pumpkin underneath your body with your eyes up and chest out. Then push your hips forward and swing the pumpkin up to chest level being sure to squeeze your glutes at the top of the movement. Increase the intensity by swinging the pumpkin overhead. Perform for 30 seconds.
2) Pumpkin Squat to Presses: Holding a pumpkin in your hands at chest level, push your hips back and squat down until your front thighs are parallel to the floor with your eyes up, your chest and knees out, and your weight on your heels. Then simultaneously stand up and press the pumpkin overhead. Increase the intensity by jumping up from the bottom of the squat position while simultaneously pressing the pumpkin overhead while airborne, then land softly and repeat. Perform for 30 seconds.
3) Pumpkin Mountain Climbers: Place a pumpkin on the floor. Place your hands on the pumpkin and assume a perfect push-up position with tight abs, tight glutes, and a straight line from the head through the heels. Now bring one knee to your chest while keeping your hips and shoulders square, then switch sides and repeat for time. Increase the intensity by adding speed of movement or by integrating a pumpkin push-up between each knee-in. Perform for 30 seconds.
Farrell will be holding his 10th annual Freaky Fat Loss event on October 26th, 9am at Pinnacle Performance and Fitness, located inside of One Fit Gym 438 Robert Street. The event is open to the public, families are welcome, and Farrell will be donating $5 to charity for every person who shows up. The cost is $10 per participant. 100% of the money raised will go to Family Counseling Services. Participants must bring their own pumpkin to the workout. A medium to large pumpkin is recommended.
