Workouts For Binge Watchers

We all have a favorite TV shows that we just have to watch every week, or we get in the mood to binge watch a whole season of the show we just love. Well now you do not have to feel guilty about taking time out of your day to watch a TV show!

There is a simple solution to make watching TV one of the most productive parts of your day. All you have to do is workout while you watch! I encourage you to write a workout routine that goes along with your show to keep you motivated and focused on working out throughout the whole episode.

It is a great idea to write your own workout because then it is specific to you and the show you watch. You can make your workout more challenging to really get yourself to sweat, or you can simply just make sure you are keeping your body moving and not just sitting for long periods of time. This also gives you the freedom to change up the exercises you use in your workout as often as you would like. The goal is to create a fun workout you can do while still enjoying your favorite TV show.

Here are a few tips on how to set up a workout that flows with your show.

  1. Do an exercise during the opening credits
  2. Assign an action to a common phrase said on the show
  3. Hold a position when characters are at specific location
  4. Do a move every time a charter does a particular action
  5. Complete an exercise whenever a common event or incident happens

If you do not want to make your own workout, then you can always look to see if there is already a workout for your favorite show out there. You can also take a look at what workout routines others have come up with for a specific show to give you ideas.

Here are a few examples:
