Let's look at some blood-curdling, testosterone-boosting workouts for you to check out this Halloween.

Road to Hell

road to hell

With a Running Clock of 15 minutes

From 0:00 to 3:00 to complete:

500 metre Row

In the remaining time, AMRAP (as many reps as possible) of:

  • Nine Dumbbell Thrusters (2x 50/35 lb)
  • 18 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
  • Nine Devil Presses (2x 50/35 lb)

Are you prepared to suffer at the hands of the devil? CrossFit boasts some brutal workouts within its endless roster, quick in time but hugely demanding across all parts of the body. 

'Road to Hell' contains the dreaded Devil's Press movement and a repulsive rowing buy-in, thrilling Thrusters, and creepy Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups.

To face this monster challenge on a 15-minute clock, complete the 500 metre Row in the first three minutes. Then, in the remaining time, perform as many rounds and repetitions as possible of the prescribed work in the running order above (if you dare).

There are two scores for this wicked workout. Score A is the time it took to complete the 500-meter Row, while Score B is the total number of rounds and repetitions completed before the 15-minute time cap stops.

The 'Road To Hell' awaits— just take the right route.

Plankenstein

60 seconds of the following planks followed by 60 seconds rest:

  • Standard Plank
  • Side Plank
  • Walking Plank
  • Crawling Plank
  • Bird Dog Plank

Arghhhhhhhh-bs! Looking to build a scarily sculpted six-pack? Introducing the petrifying Plankenstein Halloween Workout Challenge. Don't worry— it's simple enough—but it may present a challenge depending on your current planking ability.

The plank is a timeless core exercise known for its side-splitting impact and you can use it as a measure of core strength— especially when using weights or throwing advanced variations into the mix.

Simple in design, you should take on this challenge by following the template of planking for 60 seconds, followed by a 60-second rest before immediately beginning the next plank variation. 

Your abdominals will be screaming. Your core will be crying. But you'll be closer to that six-pack dream, so don't let this workout be a nightmare.

GHOSTLY RIP circuits

Perform GHOSTLY first by doing eight to 10 reps of each exercise. Then move to RIP cardio with 12 to 16 reps. Take a one-minute break, then do the circuit again two more times.

GHOSTLY

  • Goblet Squat
  • Hammer Curls
  • Overhand Row
  • Shoulder Press
  • Triceps Kickbacks
  • Lateral Lunges
  • Y with Bands

RIP

  • Reverse Lunges
  • Inner Thigh Gate Swing
  • Plie Jacks

A double header of horror, this ghoulish circuit challenge beats you down when you're at your lowest and will have you begging for the exit. 

The workouts are fiendishly designed, so the first letter of each exercise corresponds to the words GHOSTLY and RIP. So it’ll be easier to remember when the burn strikes and the mind begins to fog. 

Tackle GHOSTLY first, tackling eight to ten repetitions of each exercise before moving to the more cardio-focused RIP section—each commanding 12 to 16 repetitions. 

Take a break. Drink some water. Then go again, then again. It's a very vicious workout, indeed.

Headless Horseman

AMRAP (as many reps as possible) in nine minutes

  • 30 Push Jerks (135/95 lb)
  • 60 Box Jump Overs (24/20 in)
  • 90 Medicine Ball Cleans (20/14 lb)

Programmed by one of CrossFit's leading ambassadors, Chris Spealler, we don't know why he named this workout after a mythical figure who has appeared in folklore worldwide since the Middle Ages. But it sounds cool, right?

We get the sense the Headless Horseman would need help with this one, with 180 reps to complete against a nine-minute clock, leaving no room for a breather. All-out action, with an overhanging sense of dread and doom that’s guaranteed to zap the life out of you.

Want to give this killer WOD a try? On a 9-minute clock, perform as many rounds and repetitions as possible (as many reps as possible) of the Headless Horseman routine, in the order written. 

Your score is the total number of rounds and repetitions completed before the nine-minute clock stops

Zombies vs Humans

First of all, work out whether you want to be a zombie or a human. If you’re a Zombie, you’ll start this workout exactly three minutes after the living people (humans) and try to catch them (if you can).

man doing sit ups

  • Run 800 metres
  • 20 double unders
  • 40 air squats
  • 60 sit-ups
  • 40 push-ups
  • 20 pull-ups
  • Run 400 metres

This one requires some pals and may be best done in a group training session. If you're a fan of zombie flicks, this workout may be just what you need to get your blood flowing–erm–pumping, we mean!

Get some of your favourite ghouls together and divide into two teams. One of the teams will be designated survivors and get a head start on the workout. 

The other team will play the role of the undead and will spend the workout trying to "catch" the survivors. Let's hope you can run fast.

If you’re a Zombie, you must catch at least one person. If you fail to see somebody, you must pay a penalty of 25 burpees after the workout. 

If you’re alive and get caught by any Zombies, you must also do the 25 burpees. The only people who don't burpees are the living who don't get caught and the Zombies who see people.
