Good news, guys: There are tons of awesome fall TV show premieres this week. (The Biggest Loser premiere party, anyone?) But we all know what that means: so many good shows to watch, so little time to exercise, right? Well, not so fast—this week, we’ve got a great workout that allows you to watch all of your favorite shows and squeeze in a killer workout, too.
Here’s the deal: You’ll get to watch all the season premieres your heart desires, because you’re going to squeeze in your workout during the commercial breaks. During each commercial break, you’ll do a circuit of five exercises as many times as you can. Once the show comes back on, you’ll rest. You’ll repeat this during each commercial break until the show is over. The best thing about this workout? The more TV you watch, the harder your workout will be. Talk about a win-win, huh? Happy sweating, Be Wellers!
There’s nothing fancy about this week’s workout. It’s straight forward, easy to follow and, most important, gets the job done.
Here’s what you’re going to do: Simply work your way through the list of exercises below, completely 10 reps of each. When you finish your reps, hit the treadmill (or track, or neighborhood sidewalk) for a 30-second sprint. Then it’s back to the top to start all over again.
You’ll repeat the circuit five times through, for a total of 50 reps of each exercises and five sprints. Get it? Good. Now get to work!
Our pals at Unite Fitness are launching an immersive 10-week boot camp program this fall. And by “immersive,” I mean it’ll totally kick your butt—in the best way ever, of course.
For this week’s workout, you’re going to count by five all the way to 50. You’ll start by doing five pull-ups, then you’ll do 10 burpees, next you’ll do 15 reverse flys, and so on, increasing the number of reps by five until you get to the last exercise on the list—50 jumprope jumps. You’ll go through the circuit a total of four times, so get ready for some serious sweat, my friends. Good luck!
