Cancel out those bite-sized sweets with these calorie-burning exercises that tone your calves, butt, shoulders, chest, and abs.
Cancel Out Candy Calories in 3 Moves TRY: Mountain Climber

Start in plank position (hands and toes on floor, back straight, abs engaged). Bring right knee to chest and tap toe on floor; straighten leg. Repeat with left knee. Do for 3 minutes.

Burn off: 70 calories, or 13 pieces of candy corn.

TRY: Power Jump

Stand with feet 6 inches apart. Squat, then push up, leaping forward and as high as you can. Repeat, jumping to the left, back and to the right. Do 25 rounds.

Burn off: 80 calories, or two Snickers Minis.

TRY: High March

Extend arms while holding a candy-filled pumpkin. March in place, bringing knees up as high as you can for 2 minutes (without spilling candy!). Rest 1 minute. Do 3 sets.

Burn off: 40 calories, or one mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

Haha! The last move made me laugh. ^_^ The best way for me to burn calories is jumping rope. Burning calories in so little time never seemed so easy!
