Now you don’t have to choose between reading a good book at home or getting a workout… do the Book-Lover Workout!
These exercises are specifically designed to allow you to read while working all the muscles in your body. It’s #winwin :)
Watch the video below for demonstrations and explanations of how to do the exercises.
Wall Sit-N-Read or Squat-N-Read
How it works: Assume the sitting position on a wall of your choice or get into a squat position. Hold this pose until you finish two pages.
How it works: Place an open book on the floor. Complete as many push-ups as you can while reading.
How it works: Get in a lunge position. Hold the pose and read two pages. Switch legs and read two more.
How it works: Assume the plank position with your book under you. Hold your plank until you’ve successfully finished an entire chapter or two (if they are short chapters).

How it works: Using two books, curl them up and then press to the ceiling. Repeat until you’ve completed the number of chapters in one of the books.
