Today for Healthy Lifestyles, we did a unique workout: pumpkin weightlifting! We were so lucky to have tons of pumpkins donated by a community friend, Sakata Seed America, so members got to choose from a very, very wide assortment of shapes and sizes to lift and move. Before lunch we warmed up by carrying our pumpkins around the block in this beautiful weather. After lunch we got down to business and began our intense workout. We did step aerobics with our pumpkins, pumpkin passing, pumpkin push-ups, squats with pumpkins, pumpkin curls, pumpkin relay races, and much much more! All with our pumpkins, big and small, orange and otherwise! "Pumpkin party at Max Higbee," said Darth Vader 13. "I liked the relay races." Glad to hear. "I liked this. I do some of them," added Halloween Jalapeño. Good point Halloween Jalapeño. Since this workout was a bit more exhausting than some other activities, members were encouraged to take breaks. We didn't need the pumpkins smashing us, after all. "It was a hard workout," said Pumpkin, an aptly nicknamed member. It sure was. Great work everyone!
