TV commercials makes for 8 minutes of great exercise opportunities per hour.

Some stats: The average person spend about 34 hours a week watching TV. The average time we are exposed to commercials is close to 8 minutes per hour (during prime time that figure goes up to almost 14 minutes). Just to be conservative well do our math based on 8 minutes.

8 minutes per hour adds up to almost 5 hours per week. That’s 10 full days in a year! The point is that it’s an insane amount of time when added up, and we’re wasting it watching commercials. If we were to spend that time exercising we would have ourselves one heck of a workout program.

Crunches, dips, lunges, bike exercises, plank, stretching, push-ups and squats are some great exercises that are all well suited to do in the couch in front of the TV.

The key to fitting Nano Workouts into your lifestyle is to identify situations you often find yourself in and try to think constructively how you can turn them into something active. When sitting in the couch at home in front of the TV is exactly one of those situations.
