Commercial Break Workout

Hey, TV Heads!

Yes, you! Don't have enough time to hit the gym because your favorite TV show is on tonight? Don't worry, I totally get it! That's why I created this special workout just for you!

Presenting, Emily Fayette's Commercial Break Workout!

A 30-minute show typically has two to three commercial breaks, each lasting roughly two to three minutes. That's six to nine minutes of free time for you to get your heart rate up!

I'm challenging you to complete the following three circuits during the commercial breaks of your favorite show. Watching a 60 minute show? Repeat the workout!


20 Couch Up/Down Step up and down off of the couch. Alternate which leg leads each time you step up. 
10 Decline Push-Ups Plank position with your hands on the floor and feel on the couch. Keep your back flat and push-it-up! 
25 Russian Pillow Twists Sit in a V position, grab the pillow of your couch, hold it close to your chest with your elbows out, and swing your torso from left to right keeping your arms stable. 
Repeat 2x


25 Jumping Jacks Go big with these! 
20 Couch Squats Feet shoulder width apart, squat your booty down until it touches the couch, and come back up. 
20 Couch Sit-Up Lay down on the ground with your feet under the couch to stabilize you while you do your sit-ups.
Repeat 2x


25 High Knees Stand up, and get your knees as high as you can. 
10 Couch Dips Tricep dips using the couch. 
25 Couch Climbers Hands on couch in plank position, drive your knees one at a time to your chest. 
Repeat 2x

Time to turn on the TV and get your sweat on!
