A Few Simple Bodyweight Workouts That Can be Done While Watching the World Cup

So you only have so much free time, right? And that free time is going to be use watching the final World Cup games. That leaves no time for exercise. Any normal person may decide that this semi-legitimate excuse is enough to rationalize not working out (and possibly drinking beer instead), but much to the chagrin of you World Cup fans, I have a few solutions. Here are a few simple bodyweight workouts that can be done while watching the World Cup, without even needing to take your eyes of the TV.

The key to these workouts is continual movement at a medium-high intensity with short rest periods. Each of these workouts contain a series of exercises to be done back to back in sets, with 1 to 2 minutes of rest between sets. Scale as necessary.

Workout 1

4 sets of:
25 pushups
50 lunges
25 situps

Workout 2

5 sets of:
20 air squats
20 jumping jacks
20 calf raises
10 supermans

Workout 3

3 sets of:
20 situps
20 mountain climbers
20 dips
20 air squats
20 pushups
20 lunges
