Are you one of those who claim that lack of time and low temperatures is the reason they cannot do work out? Even while watching your favorite TV show, movie or other program, you can do some exercises like squats and sit-ups.
Use your favorite show
Everyone has their favorite shows that you can use for exercise time. Take advantage of the predictability of your favorite character, so that every time that character makes certain gesture, says a specific sentence or a joke, you completed one part of the training. The training includes four exercises, each of which is carried out for 1 minute. Those exercises can be push-ups, squats, pushups on the elevated bar, lunge exercise.
Strengthen your hands while on the couch
Sit down, place your palms on the edge of the couch and put your feet as much as possible ahead. Feet should be hip-width apart. Slowly bend your elbows and lower your body and butt down. During the lowering of the body, hands should be close to the body. Then lift your body to the start position and repeat the procedure. If you need more of a challenge, put your feet upon the elevated surface.
If you have a stationary bike, treadmill or any other exercise machine, make sure you put it in front of the television. While watching your favorite TV show, you can easily do a regular training. For starters, prepare your body for the exercise for some 5 minutes of easy riding or running, depending which exercise machine you have.
This is followed by intervals of minute of rapid exercising, than slow exercising, for the next 30 minutes, or whatever your show takes time.
When you cannot move from the TV
If you cannot or do not want to move away from your favorite series, we suggest the following exercise.
Stand upright against the wall so that you are facing the TV. Bend your knees, lowering into a squat sliding back on the wall.
If you want more intense exercise remain in the squat position for 10 seconds, and then one minute in the home position. Then remain 20 seconds in the squat position, and then again for 1 minute in the home position. When you get to 40 seconds, start to decline in the second squat position at 30, 20 and 10 seconds.
Tighten your stomach muscles
For this exercise, take a bottle of water and sit upright on the couch. Grasp the bottle with both hands and extend them in front of you. Rotate your upper body to the left and right. During this exercise hips must be stable. Repeat this exercise about 20 times.
