As avid football fans ourselves, we hear you. The good news is that there are many ways to sneak in exercise between plays. Halftime is also a great time to make your living room your personal workout space. We’ve compiled a list of exercises you can do from your couch during those long hours in front of the TV. Who said you had to sacrifice watching a game winning drive to get fit?

Crunch Time

Did your team call a crucial time out? Use this time to do a set of 25 crunches. Relieve the stress and feel the burn! By the end of the game, your abs will be on fire.

Challenge Your Quads

Every time the coach challenges a play, get in wall squat position for 60-seconds. Feel the burn in your lower body!

Step Outside

When the game hits halftime, take a walk or run outdoors. Do this again at final buzzer to get a nice break before the next game.

Plank Passed a Sack
