Health Tip: Exercise While Watching Television

Get off the couch to change the channel

(HealthDay News) -- If your favorite TV shows are pulling you away from your workout, why not combine the two?

The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions:

  • Ditch the remote and walk to the TV to change the channel.
  • During commercial breaks, walk up and down the stairs or around the room.
  • Perform resistance exercises while you watch.
  • Invest in a treadmill or stationary bike.
  • Perform activities that require you to stand, such as ironing your clothes.
