Will you accept this sweat? The Bachelor Workout turns each episode into a sweat sesh, helping you get in a solid workout while you watch all the drama unfold.
Guys, I got roped back in to watching The Bachelor.
I stopped watching a few season ago because Nick was so boring, but my sister-in-law convinced me to start watching again. I’m not mad about it.
The drama. The craziness. The love (real or fake). It’s great mindless television.
My only issue with it is that each episode is so long. I have a hard time sitting still through the whole thing to watch, so I decided to turn each episode into a workout. The Bachelor Workout keeps me moving and feeling productive while I watch all the drama unfold.
How The Bachelor Workout Works
Whenever any of the following happens, you do the move as a penalty of sorts. Some things may overlap, so keep track and don’t skimp out!
How to do the moves
Supermans – Lay on the floor, belly down, with legs straightened behind you and arms straightened out in front of you. Engage your core and lift your arms and legs off the floor as much as you can comfortably. Return back down to the floor and repeat.
Air Squats – Stand with feet about hip width apart, feet pointed straight ahead. Send your hips back and drop down into a squat as low as you can go, keeping your torso upright and knees pointed out. You don’t have to stop at 90 degrees if you have the mobility to drop down further. Stand back up to starting position and repeat. (see them here)
Mountain Climbers – Start at the top of a push up, shoulders above your wrists. With the core engaged, bring the right knee in toward your chest. Return to starting position. Then bring your left knee in toward your chest. That’s one rep. Pick up the pace until it feels like you’re running in a plank position.
V Ups – Lay on the floor with legs extended out in front of you and arms extended on the floor overhead. Keep your feet together and your legs straight as you lift the legs up and raise the upper body, reaching for the toes with your hands and creating a “V” shape with your body. Keep the core engaged at all times. If this is too difficult, you can bend at the knees.
Plank – Get into a plank position on your forearms, insuring your elbows are directly under your shoulders. Keep the hips in line with the torso, engage the core and hold. If this gets difficult, you can drop to your knees or raise up onto your hands.
Jumping Jacks – Start standing with your feet next to each other and arms at your side. Jump your legs wide and at the same time, bring your arms up, clapping them together overhead. Jump your feet back in and bring your arms back down your side. That’s one rep.
Jump Lunges – Start standing with your feet staggered, right foot in front of your left. Push off both feet, switch the position of your legs in the air and land in a basic lunge with your left foot in front of your right. Repeat, switching the position of your legs with each jump. Every two jumps is one rep (every time your right foot lands in the front again).
Crunches – Lay on your back, knees bend and feet on the floor. The closer your feet are to your butt, the harder this move will be. Place your hands behind your head. With the core engaged, sit up, bringing your torso to your knees. Repeat.
Single Leg Glute Bridge – Lay on your back and place both feet about hip width apart a few inches from your butt. Lift your right leg straight up into the air, with the bottom of the foot parallel to the ceiling. Tighten your booty, engage your core and drive your hips up and raised foot toward the ceiling. Pause for a second at the top and then come down to complete one rep. You should feel this in the glutes and hamstrings. Complete all reps on one side. Then repeat with the left leg in the air.
Burpees – Start standing with feet hip-width apart. Jump or step feet back and drop your hands under your shoulders (so you land in a plank position). Do a push-up, lowering the chest all the way to the floor. Push back up to plank, jump your feet back in and hop back up to stand, clapping your hands overhead as you do so. Repeat as soon as you land.
