Best Gear for Your Halloween-Candy Workout Challenge

Despite the hundred times you told yourself that you'd do better this year, you totally dipped into your kids' Halloween candy and splurged on a ghoulish October cocktail. "Just one" Twix has led you to a belt notch you never wanted to see.

Fortunately, you can still sweat out your Hershey-fueled fun. Skip the trick and treat yourself to some new exercise gear. Your redemption is near -- just 10 extra reps away.

1. Wonder Core Smart Fitness Equipment

Not all sit-ups were created equal. This handy device makes sure you get the most out of every ab workout, targeting your upper, middle and lower abs as well as your oblique muscles. 

2. TRX Suspension Trainer Basic Kit + Door Anchor

Limited space likely complements your limited desire to exercise. Luckily (unluckily?), this kit turns any door, ceiling beam or tree branch into the ultimate gym. The kit also includes a comprehensive workout guide, so you can't pretend you don't know how to use it.

3. Bowflex PR1000 Home Gym

OK, this one is slightly more ambitious, but it makes a great investment if you are really serious about physical fitness ... or you want people to think you are. In a style reminiscent of a medieval torture device, the Bowflex provides up to 210 pounds of resistance to over 30 strength exercises.

4. Weider Power Tower

Scare yourself back to 7th grade gym class with the Weider Power Tower. The device is extremely versatile, allowing for push-ups, pull ups and dips. Maybe, you'll actually do a push up correctly with this one.

5.  Evo 2 Weightlifting Gloves

You probably got a paper cut in your mad dash to eat all the 'good' candy. Protect your hands from further indignities in the anti-slip comfort of Evo gloves.

6. Marcy Flat Utility Weight Bench

An office chair does NOT make an appropriate lifting bench. This basic bench allows you to make use of all the equipment you falsely convinced yourself to buy last bikini season. Its foam upholstery also makes a great seat when you take a 'short' break every 30 seconds.

7. j/fit Dumbbell Weight Set

Consider doing one rep for every candy wrapper you find in your desk. These colorful dumbbells make the perfect companions for that 40-year journey.

8. Fitbit Charge 2 Heart Rate + Fitness Wristband

Since you probably haven't been to the gym since Bush was in office, you should keep track of your vitals. The Charge 2 automatically tracks your heart rate to measure the calories you burn throughout the day. Note: It doesn't account for the three donuts you ate for lunch.

9. Panasonic WINGS Wireless Sport Headphones

A great pair of headphones is the best way to forget that other people can hear you crying, too. The rugged, waterproof construction of the limited edition Wings keeps you tuned up through your workout with clear sound and powerful bass.

10. Promixx: The Original Vortex Mixer. Protein Shaker Bottle

Though you'd rather use it for something a little more fun (alcohol), the Promixx is perfect for energy and protein drinks. Skip the shaking, a detachable motor does all of the mixing for you. Why do extra work when you actually made the effort to work out?
