This was a modification of my Thriller beatdown from previous years… Every time we heard the song Thriller by Michael Jackson, we moved back to the center and did the routine with our weights (looking scary as we did it!). The rest of the workout consisted of a warmup, pairs of exercises performed for 20 reps each repeated for the duration of a song, and a cooldown.

Thanks for playing along, everyone!

Read several Halloween quotes to see if anyone could guess who said it or what movie it came from. See how well you do…

Just because I cannot see it, doesn’t mean I can’t believe it! – Jack Skellington, “The Nightmare Before Christmas”

It’s Halloween. Everyone’s entitled to one good scare. – Sheriff Leigh Brackett, “Halloween”

I’ve seen enough horror movies to know that any weirdo wearing a mask is never friendly. – Elizabeth, “Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives”
