Here is the couch potato workout from my December Newsletter…Please perform these exercises carefully and consult your doctor before beginning any exercise program.
Stand in front of your couch and bend your knees until your buns touch the couch but do not sit. Immediately stand back up and repeat.
Seated Punches. (sorry her head was cut off in the pic)
The more you can cross the body, the more you will work your abdominals.
Triceps Dips and Advanced Triceps Dips
Keep your finger tips forward as you bend and straighten your elbows
Sit on the edge of your couch with your knees bent and toes touching the floor. Lift your legs, bringing your knees in toward your chest. Keep your back straight as you lower the legs and repeat.
Advanced and Modified Push Ups
Advanced: Place feet on couch and perform decline push ups.
Modified: Place hands on the couch and perform crunches in this position so you are more supported.
Keep your back straight with your core braced to support your back.
Place your heels on the couch while you lie flat on the floor.
Lift your hips up as high as you can without straining your back and lower back down to the floor. Repeat.
Advanced: Straighten one leg so your toes are pointed up toward the ceiling.
Perform 15-20 reps of each exercises (or as many as you can) and repeat this circuit until your TV show is over or after 3 rounds.
There are many more exercises you can perform but this should get you started 🙂
