May G-d bless you and protect you!

    Hey Sherri,
    I would say Yes to some – but it all depends on your fitness level.

  5. Sherri says:

    Hi Holly,

    Can these exercises be used for both intervals and resistance training?


    Sherri :)

    Dear Dear Holly,

    What a wonderful collage. And Tyler is oh so cute and so endearing. It made me cry seeing the two of you bond so well and make that video. YOU look like his elder sister more and less like his MOM. WOW! Thanks for the video. Happy Halloween!

    Thanks Carolyn,

    I actually have my FYM soundtracks custom made! If you have the FYM DVD’s you will hear lots of cool mixes.

    As far as how long a pumpkin lasts – guess it depends on how it is stored – and how long it has been sitting around before you purchase it. So I do not have an answer for you. Too much variation. Maybe go by the touch and feel test.

  8. Carolyn says:

    Love it! The pumpkin is not just for baking anymore!! And by the way, I love the music that goes with your workouts, where can I find it?
    Happy Halloween!

    Holly, you and Tyler are adorable! Can’t wait till my son gets big enough to incorporate him into my FYM workouts! Way to get the family involved! (But where was Patrick?)I think he would’ve made a GREAT male-cheerleader! Happy Halloween!

  10. Connie says:

    Thank you Tyler and Holly. You two are so cute. That gives me lots of ideas for workouts with our pumpkins. Happy Halloween to you guys too!!!

    Hi Holly,

    thanks for the great tip, i’ve already spotted by future quasi-medicine ball on sale at my local grocers. :)

    Now, i’m about to ask a really stupid question (feel free to cyber laugh at me, really, i wont know ;))

    My question is, what is the life span of said pumpkin??

    Ive never been the proud owner of a WHOLE one before and now i’m having visions of attempting an inclined push up, only to find myself face-planted, forearm deep is a mooshy pumpkin soup-esque centre!!!!!

    Maybe being a newbie to all things pumpkin i should stick to the size Tyler is using, looks challenging enough, and its closer to the ground!!!

    Any advise from you lovely YMs would be great appreciated!

    thanks in advance!!

  13. Marie says:

    Very good ideas indeed:) I just can’t believe how warm it seems to be at your place…we have snow here & are freezing so i’ll be trying those exercises inside the house!!!!

    Thanks & Happy Halloween!

  14. Mandy says:

    Tyler was so cute balancing the little pumpkin on his head…glad you didn’t try that with your big pumpkin. :LOL:

    Have a happy Halloween!!

  15. Holly Rigsby says:

    Good starting weight would be between 6 and 12 pounds – really just depends on what exercise and what your strengths are ;)

  16. SusanS says:

    Since I don’t own a medicine ball [it’s on my Xmas list ;)],
    this pumpkin idea will help me get started now.
    What weight would be a good start?
    Thanks for the great ideas!

  17. Nisha says:
