Commercial Break Workouts


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

When I haven't had time to do a workout, I fit one in while watching TV. During the commercial breaks, I choose one exercise & do as many reps as I can before the show starts again. These include crunches, push-ups, leg lifts, calf raises, bicep curls, tricep dips, jumping jacks, etc. Just move!

    I get up and clean my house during the breaks...or fold laundry. Maybe I need to rethink my routine.
