Most of us spend more time in front of the TV than we’d like to admit. We have shows we watch every week, and shows we binge. While TV time is fun, all that sitting is bad for your body and for your overall health. Instead of staying on the couch, why not use some of your TV time to work out? There are tons of exercises you can do in your living room, all without missing a second of your favorite show. These 8 exercises you can do while watching TV will help you burn calories, build muscle, and improve your overall health.
Squats are powerful calorie-burning exercises. Whether you prefer sumo squats, jump squats, split squats, or standard squats, you’ll feel a leg and booty burn.
Put a small step stool or chair in front of the tube and work your legs. You can hold dumbbells for an extra challenge.
3. High knees
High knees are a great cardio move. Run in place and bring your knees up high. Don’t forget to breathe!
4. Jump rope
Jump rope is another cardio move that you can do while watching TV. If you have an actual jump rope, great, but if not, you can jump up and down, keep your arms by your sides, and move your hands the way you would if you were holding a jump rope.
