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

Push-Ups

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

Star-Jumps

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

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

Push-Ups

If someone complains to Ben – Do 10 Mountain Climbers

If anyone says “husband” – Do 8 Squats
