Feel the Burn While You Watch the Bachelor

Work out while watching the bachelor

How many of you out there are fans of The Bachelor? Guys, I’m talking to you, too.

Let’s be real for a quick second. My wife loves the show, so I’ve definitely seen my fair share of episodes this season, and I may or may not have finished a workout early to make sure I was home in time to watch it… with her of course.

Here at IdealShape, we’re pretty big fans of The Bachelor, and as it turns out, they’re pretty big fans of ours, too.

Check out some Bachelor alumni using our incredible products to stay healthy.

But, I have a question for everyone who watches this show: Who said you can’t get a little exercise in while watching The Bachelor?

If you do watch The Bachelor and you’re looking to lose weight and feel healthy, well, I’ve come up with a fun way to do all of this at the same time.

Let’s Switch Things up a Bit

It’s time to put a little fitness spin on watching what host Chris Harrison would probably describe as …the most dramatic Bachelor season ever. (Ok, maybe I watch a little more than my fair share.)

This can be done from the comfort of your own home. You won’t need any outside equipment. Just your body, a little bit of space, and maybe some water.

Here are the rules: Each time you see these things happen or hear these things said while watching The Bachelor, you have to do the accompanying exercise.

Below are two versions for you to pick from, so you can keep things fresh for each episode. But, whichever version you pick, stick with it for the whole episode

Version 1

If any of the girls cry – Do 5 Push Ups


If Ben hands out a rose on a group date – Do 10 Star Jumpers


If Ben gives out a rose on a single date – Do 8 Squats


If someone rejects a rose – Do 10 Burpees


If anyone goes swimming or hot tubbing – Do 10 Jumping Jacks


If Ben kisses a girl – Do 4 Push Ups


If someone complains to Ben – Do 10 Mountain Climbers


If anyone says “husband” – Do 8 Squats


Version 2

If anyone says “marry” -Do 10 Star Jumpers


If Ben cries – Do 4 Burpees


If anyone lies – Do 7 Mountain Climbers


If Ben takes a date on a boat – Do 12 Squats


If someone says “wife” – Do 5 Push Ups


If the girls compete in a challenge against each other on a group date – Do 15 Jumping Jacks


If anyone interrupts a conversation between Ben and one of the girls – Do 10 Star Jumpers


If anyone complains about anything – Do 5 Push Ups


Have Fun and Switch Things up a Bit

It’s time to take your Bachelor viewing to the next level. Try out these versions and let me know which was the hardest!

Also, feel free to modify these exercises as needed. If you happen to have any dumbbells lying around the house, go ahead and incorporate them if you’d like.

If you really want to challenge yourself and jump start your weight loss, head on over to our 12-week IdealShape Up Challenge.

With this challenge you’ll get workouts that can be done in under 30 minutes a day, delicious meal plans, and support from our trainers!
