Leave laziness behind, and take advantage of the moments you watch TV to tone up your muscles with these exercises.
You have no excuse! Neither time nor laziness will be a justification for not exercising, because with these exercises that we propose you can tone your body while watching television. Whether you are lazy or hopeless for sports, exercising while watching your favorite movie will be a way to make the most of your time and stay in shape. Attentive!
First of all, it is important that you know that you can take advantage of the resources of your room to train. For example, you can do some exercises on your sofa, as long as it is firm enough, the carpet is ideal for floor exercises, and the chair, table, chairs or puffs can help you perform some exercises. Now, take note of the exercises you can do while watching your favorite series on television.
1. Triceps on the couch
Hold on the edge of the couch with your palms resting on the seat and your fingers forward. Stretch, so that your butt is a little bit ahead of the edge, in the air, while your then together will remain on the floor, as if you were going to sit down. Lower your core to the ground, with your back straight, and climb back to the starting position. You can make variations of this exercise by lifting one foot while raising and lowering or extending the leg. Ideal to make arms while watching television.
2. Bicycle on the carpet
Lie on your back on the carpet while watching TV and start making bicycles. Raise the knees at the hips and hands holding the neck (Do not pull your neck, just a point of support). Begin to ‘pedal’ by bringing the right knee to the left elbow and vice versa. Repeat several times. You’ll be so entertained watching TV that you will not even notice.
3. Jumping jacks with squats
Take the opportunity to do some cardio and tone your thighs and buttocks with this combination of the famous jumps jumping jacks and squats. Make a jump opening and closing the legs and arms and then low down doing a squat. You can watch television while you exercise.
4. Lateral leg lift
It is one of the best exercises to do while watching TV because you can do it from the couch. Lying on your side with your head resting on your hand, lift your stretched leg, hold for a few seconds and lower yourself. When you have done a series of about 20 repetitions, change position and get on the other side of the sofa to repeat the exercise with the other leg without you stop watching TV. It is such a perfect exercise that you can even do it while eating popcorn … Maybe it is not recommended, but at least you will subtract some calories.
5. Split squats
Split squats or stride squats can be done anywhere, also while watching television. Stand with your feet open at the hips in front of the television, with enough space to make the stride. Stride forward, bending the knees, return to the starting position and repeat with the other leg. You can increase the intensity with weights or by supporting the back leg on the sofa or a chair, doing several repetitions with the same leg.
6. Table while watching TV
Repeat 20 or 30 seconds of plank or board, but instead of resting your feet on the floor, you can do it by resting your feet on the couch, similar to how the model does with the fitball.
7. Dance in front of the TV
When you see musicals, movies with animated music or music concerts on TV, take the opportunity to dance a while at your leisure. That will make you tone up, burn fat and have fun for a while, much more than if you were left lying on the couch. Let’s move!
