So you’re a couch potato… that doesn’t mean you can’t get a small workout in while you snack on crisps. Amanda Jenkins shows you how to slip one in while you're channel surfing!
I don’t know about you, but ‘Netflix and Chill’ could be my middle name, with a bag of crisps as my constant S.O. It’s kind of hard getting the body of your dreams when your fave place in the world is the sofa so we did some digging and unearthed the kind of workout you can do while your daily binge-watch. No excuses now for me OR you, ladies.
Repeat each exercise for 45 seconds and do three rounds:
This is tricky on a couch but you can do it! Balance your body on your elbows on one arm rest and your feet on another. Raise into plank position and hold for 30 seconds.
Great for: The Core.
Lie on your back with your head on the arm rest and your arms on your side, palms down. Lift your legs up in a scissor motion.
Great for: The core and hamstrings.
Rest your entire body weight on your side, bend your legs at the knee and raise and lower. The best part? You can eat crisps while you’re at it!
Great for: Hips.
Seated Leg Raise
Sit down like you would when you’re channel surfing, with your back against the couch. Raise and lower legs.
Great for: Hamstrings.
Get off the couch, rest both palms on the front and lower and raise your body, using only your triceps.
Great for: Triceps.
Lie on our back, with your head on the couch cushion, not the arm rest. Perch your legs in an elevated position on the arm rest, raise your body, squeeze your glutes and lower back to the starting position.
Great for: Glutes and core.
