The X Factor Workout

Here’s a way to exercise at home and help you get in shape without missing your favourite television programmes like the X Factor.

This type of workout will help jumpstart the metabolism and create a stronger, healthier body. To encourage you it would be best to involve other people. Compete against your friends, partner or family members to bring about a competitive spirit to help get the best out of you.

This is what to do:
Choose a one to two-hour window.

The rules:
Every time an Ad break is on you perform one exercise and perform as many repetitions as you can before the end of the Ad break.

The guidelines:
Do a different exercise for every Ad break.

If you are unable to do an exercise for the duration of the Ad break, stop and rest. Resume when you are ready again and continue the counting from where you stopped.

Exercises to try:

Bodyweight Squats

Static Wall Squat (count time)

Alternating Step-Ups

The Plank (count time)



If you have any tight muscles stretch them for around 30 seconds on each stretch before you begin. This will help rebalance the body and help prevent performing the exercises with a poor technique.

Watching TV doesn’t make people obese it’s the lack of exercise and overeating that does!
