Exercise During `commercials


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

No time to exercise? The average commercial is 2+ min long on TV. Instead of heading for the fridge, exercise. Do squats, pushups, wall pushups, jumping jacks etc
On the computer. do these exercises or similar every 15 min

    i started doing this this week. I feel rather silly, even if I'm alone, but it sure keeps the body moving so it's better than sitting down!

    Even for seasoned exercisers, these little bits of exercise help.

    My husband does this..I need to do it more regularly! It really does add up to a good amount of exercise time.

Great reminder! Thanks!

    And nowadays commercials can easily be 4+ minutes long. emoticon

    Doing this sort of exercise is how I got back into exercising after joining Spark as I couldn't do even 10 sustained minutes of exercise at first!

    I've used this before. When I first made the commitment to exercising, I was introducing exercise in spurts during the day so that it wouldn't seem overwhelming. Commercials were one thing I used to exercise.
