Couch Workout

The couch is no longer a refuge for the exercise evader. You can watch TV and lose weight at the same time -- if you take cues from fitness trainer Kelley Davidson.

Get off the sofa and try a few of these moves right now! No equipment needed and no excuses.

Sofa Squats:

  • Stand in front of the couch, like you're about to sit down
  • Feet shoulder-width apart
  • Start to sit on the couch but STOP and inch from the cushions and stand back up
  • Repeat!
Sofa Lunge:
  • Start standing, facing the sofa, with your feet about a foot from the sofa
  • Put one foot on the cushions, but just your toes, making sure your knee is directly above your toes
  • Lunge up and down
Decline Sofa Push-ups:
  • Decline means your hands will be higher than your feet
  • Stand behind the sofa with your hands on the back of the couch
  • Arms bent at 90-degree angles
  • Bend your arms bringing the middle of your chest to the back of the sofa
Incline Sofa Push-ups:
  • Incline means your hands will be lower than your feet
  • Start with your knees on the sofa, hands on the floor, belly button pulled in
  • Bend your arms, push up style, and repeat!
