Coming home after a long day and putting your feet up can be a great way to unwind and leave the tensions of the day behind you.

But once you’re home and relaxed, it can be hard to find the motivation to get back up and moving again. Before you know it, another day may have passed without fitting in any exercise.

 If you’re finding it hard to fit exercise into your day, breaking up your activity into short sessions can be a great way to get active again.

During the breaks of your favourite TV shows, you might choose to put the kettle on, check your phone or make a snack. So what if you could make better use of this time and fit in a little bit of exercise? An hour-long TV show can have up to 12 minutes of advertising time, or as we like to call it – exercising time!

Make the most of your time while doing something good for your health and try our ad break workout below. Click on the image to open a larger version.
