A Calorie-Blasting Workout for Couch Potatoes

In This Article

Greatist-Logo.jpgCan’t pull yourself away from the latest episode of The Bachelorette? So riveted by the athletic feats on American Ninja Warrior that you find yourself sitting on the couch for two hours? It’s time to get active!

In one half hour of television, you’re likely to see about 8 minutes of advertisements—which means those reality shows offer the perfect amount of time (at least 24 minutes!) to sneak in a workout. Here’s a total-body routine from Greatist to help you break a sweat during the commercials!

Perform each exercise for 45 seconds and move straight on to the next exercise without resting. Alternatively, each exercise can be performed for the length of one commercial (restart the circuit if there are more than three).
