Living Room Total Body Workout

The holiday season is officially upon us! Houses are decorated with sparkling lights, offices are filled with tempting sweets, and there’s a chill in the air that makes you want to just curl up in a ball on your couch and hibernate.

We’ve all been there. Some mornings (or nights) are just too darn dark and cold to workout outside or motivate you to get to the gym. However, I want to make sure your #noexcuse game is strong this holiday season! For the times when you don’t want to leave the couch, I created this no-equipment needed Living Room Total Body workout so you don’t have to!

To burn the most calories and sculpt lean muscle simultaneously, this workout targets your largest muscle groups – your back, chest, legs, core and glutes. Turn on your favorite TV show or music video playlist and get your sweat on!

    1. Thank you! I’m so glad you like it 🙂

  8. What a fun workout idea!! I don’t watch tv very often.. but when I do, sometimes I get bored just sitting still! Going to try this the next time I get antsy 🙂

    1. I’m the same way Liz!! I can’t sit still most of the time lol. Then there’s after a long day…. I plop haha

  9. This is awesome!! No excuses!! You can literally do this workout in your living room! Perf for the busy holiday season that has finally arrived!!
