Get in Shape while Watching Your Favorite TV Shows!
Most of us spend at least an hour per day watching TV. It’s often entertaining, sometimes informative and always convenient. Now, it can also have a surprising benefit. While watching your favorite TV shows, you can become lean, toned, strong and flexible – and stay that way!
This book shows you, through over 100 color photos and easy to follow text, how to tone, strengthen and stretch every major muscle in your body – all while you watch your favorite TV shows. The exercises are simple to learn and easy to do. No expensive or bulky equipment is needed. Just a few dumbbells, a couple of exercise bands and a squeeze ball.
To gain the health benefits of fitness, the Office of the Surgeon General recommends that adults accumulate at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity exercise on most days of the week. Fortunately, most TV shows, including the commercials, are 30 minutes long.
Working out at home is convenient. You’ll save gasoline and time with less driving to and from the gym. No more waiting for machines, membership fees or crowded locker rooms.
There’s yet another benefit to the TV Workout. Recent university research has shown that for every two hours of continuous, sedentary TV viewing, the risk of cardiovascular disease increases by 15% and the risk of type 2 diabetes increases by 20%.
So, turn a negative into a positive. Use your TV habit to build an exercise habit and to find time for getting and staying fit.
