Workout While You Watch TV With These Easy Exercise Routines
Workouts that allow you to binge watch your favorite shows? Yes, please!
The days of "I don't have enough time to exercise" are over, because if you have enough time to watch your favorite show than you definitely have enough time to break a sweat! I'm not judging anyone for not working out, this post is pretty much just a way for me to motivate myself to get off the couch. I am the queen of "I don't have enough time", but I think we all know that that excuse is lame and my attitude needs to change. I swear I have tried everything, I've gotten gym memberships and bought fancy new running shoes, and weights, and yoga mats, but I just can't stay motivated. I get so bored working out! Five minutes on a Tredmill seems like an eternity to me. But, you know what's not boring? Game of Thrones. That show is my absolute favorite, I could sit on the couch and watch episode after episode. So, why don't I just get off the couch during my favorite hour of television and get my work out in?
Seriously, if I could physically hug BuzzFeed for coming out with this list of 43 Workouts That Allow You to Watch an Ungodly Amount of Television, I would. There are workouts set to shows like Scandal, The Walking Dead, even Friends! I'm about to be the most fit person ever. Can you imagine how ripped my abs are going to be if I binge watch Friends and do the matching work out? That show was on forever, that's weeks of great workouts just from one show!
I mentioned earlier that I love Game of Thrones, so to show you that these workouts mean business I will post the GOT Workout as an example.
OPENING CREDITS: JOG IN PLACE
WHEN SOMEONE SAYS THEIR HOUSE WORDS: DO 40 RUSSIAN TWISTS
WHEN ARYA IS CALLED "BOY": DO 10 PUSH UPS
WHEN THE STARK'S WOLVES ARE SHOWN: 30 PUNCHES
WHEN SOMEONE HAS SEX: DO 15 LUNGES ON EACH SIDE (X2 IF IT'S INCEST)
WHEN TYRION IS CALLED "THE IMP": DO 20 CRUNCHES
WHEN DAENERYS SAYS "KHALEESI": DO 10 SQUATS
WHEN SOMEONE SPEAKS DOTHRAKI: DO 20 BICYCLE TWISTS
Yeah, I'm totally going to have a rockin' bod after I work out my way through every season of Game of Thrones. Plus, Season 6 is set to start in April, which gives me plenty of time to re-watch the first five seasons and get my work out on!
