Pretty Little Liars

First up on our list of TV show workouts is none other than Pretty Little Liars! Whether or not you are willing to admit it, this show is one of those addicting shows that takes us all back to high school. Plus, watching the girls in their awesome outfits may be an extra boost for you to exercise! So whether you're newly addicted to the show and trying to catch up, or just having a marathon on a rainy day, get off the couch and feel better about sitting in front of the TV!

New Girl

New Girl is a great show to have a workout routine for because the same types of things happen in almost every episode. Schmidt has a hilarious one liner, Jessica does something awkward, and Nick and Jess keep having weird moments together.

The Walking Dead

Don't worry, I didn't forget about all of you Walking Dead fans out there! I'm actually surprised so many girls love the show but I find it awesome that there are! I tried to keep the numbers low as there is usually a ton of these that happen over the course of an episode. Just keep track of how many it adds up to and do them at your own pace. Just pretend you're practicing to survive a real zombie Apocalypse!

Doctor Who

Lately I feel like people have become addicted to this British science fiction TV show! If you haven't gotten into the show yet, they have a few seasons on Netflix for you to start watching. If you find that you're getting addicted, why not add a workout routine to your Doctor Who marathon? That way you can go back in time with the Doctor as well as with your weight!

Glee is a great workout TV show because it includes music that will pump you up to dance around! So feel free to do your own exercises during breaks between these ones when the cast is singing a song you love. Embrace your inner Gleek and give this Glee workout a try the next time you're in a singing and dancing mood!

With this show making its way to the final season, it may be good to go back to the beginning and watch some reruns! Plus, I don't know about you, but I never get tired of watching Barney and his crazy antics. Plus, aside from some exercise, you could also take away some valuable life lessons from the show that you didn't realize before. By the way, who else can't wait to find out who the mother is finally!

These are not meant to be taken as serious workout routines. If you really want to lose weight, make sure to do a steady workout routine rather than sporadic exercises. However, if you were already planning on being on the couch watching your shows, you might as well throw in some exercises! It will always help you to burn some extra calories as well as not feel so bad for hanging out with your TV all day. Do you enjoy working out while watching TV?
