Even as I sit here putting together this blog post, we have the TV on and watching the current episode of Masterchef. I don't know, it's just something about putting the kids to bed, snuggling up on the couch with my wife and my last snack of the day that seems to wrap the day up nicely.
But that's because I've already done my workout today... And believe me, it hasn't always been like this. we used to have to work it to where our only time to workout was RIGHT NOW, in the middle of watching my favorite tv shows. And although, I can't argue that your fitness and physical well being should come as a priority over watching, let's say, the latest episode of Big Bang Theory, what if you could have your cake AND eat it, too? (Or in this case, watch TV AND get your workout in?)
So tonight American Ninja Warrior is on and it's by far my favorite show that I look forward to during the week!
For those of you where this is your only time to workout, I want to give you a quick workout you can do (or basically an example workout you COULD do during any of your favorite episodes). In fact, if you check out my Instagram, I even did a Hell's Kitchen workout from one of the previous seasons.
So take this and tweak it as you see fit. I'll also include some other variety of exercises you can do. Basically, you just want to keep it to where you can still see the TV while you're doing the moves (and save the pushups and planks for commercials!)
This also works really well if you have a treadmill or elliptical and makes for great variety---during certain parts of the movie, use those cues to speed up or slow down and it will totally keep you guessing!
