Netflix and chill is might be back... in an entirely different way!

With how much we sit each day at work, it's important to move in the in the mornings, the evenings, and on the weekends. But sometimes that new movie, or Netflix show is just calling us.
But you can turn binge-watching TV into the ultimate marathon when you choose to strengthen your body, rather than sinking deeper and deeper into the couch.
Hop up and try these 10 exercises you can easily do while watching TV:
From you knees or from you toes, planks are a great way to strengthen the core while putting your concentration elsewhere. Start the plank for one minute and the next thing you know you will be able to do five.
2. Sit ups
There are many ways to do a sit up. One of my favourites is to tuck my toes under the couch and use the weight of the couch to help me do my sit ups.
3. Shoulder Touches
In the plank position alternatively touch your right hand to your left shoulder and left hand to your right shoulder, try and do this for 3 sets of 25 touches.
4. Static Split Squats
With your feet shoulder width apart stand in a lunge position. Without moving your feet bring your back knee down to the ground with out touching. Repeat 25 times and than switch to the other leg.
5. Sumo Squats
Place your feet wider than shoulder width apart. With your knees over your toes, squat, creating a 90-degree angle at your knee. Repeat 20 times for 3 sets.
Start in the standing position, bring your hands to the ground, stack your shoulders over your hands in the push up position, do one push up and continue back to your feet. Repeat 25 times. If you would like to make it harder, add a jump.
7. Side Plank
Lying on one side, lift yourself up and onto your forearm, with your elbow directly underneath your shoulder. Bring your bum off the ground so that your feet hips and shoulder are all in a line. Hold the side plank for on minute on each side, repeat three times.
8. Glute Bridge
Lie on your back with your feet on the ground under your knees, drive your hips to the ceiling with your knees in line with your toes, repeat 25 times for 3 sets.
9. Hamstring Bridges
This move is like the Glute Bridge, except you are going to place your feet further away from your bum, targeting the hamstrings, repeat this 25 times for 3 sets.
10. Superman Back Planks
Lying on your back, place your feet up on the couch. Keep your feet, hips, and shoulder aligned as if you were doing a regular plank. Hold this back plank position for 1 minute. Just like the regular plank, you will be holding this for 5 minutes in no time!
