Default House marathon on TV, can't leave my...house.

I am currently facing a dilemma. There's an all day House marathon on USA and I just can't bring myself to leave to go to the Y and miss any of this amazing show. So, what kind of exercises can I do while I'm staring intently at the television?

Well, I got the first 3 seasons on DVD for Christmas so I share your obsession. Perhaps you could set up an exercise game.

Everytime he calls someone a moron, do 10 squat jumps.
Everytime he pops a pain pill, do 10 pushups.
If the patient suddenly vomits blood, do jumping jacks for a full minute.
March in place during commercials.
etc.....



PS.....Take an hour and go to the Y. You'll live if you miss one episode. I swear!!

OMG. The TV Show Exercise game. Love it! It works with so many shows: every time someone on Grey's Anatomy says 'seriously', do 20 squats. Every time someone on Numbers writes on the chalkboard, do crunches. Every time someone on Ugly Betty comments on Betty's wardrobe, do bicep curls. This would work wonders for my fitness!

You can watch the tube while sitting and balancing on the Swiss ball. Feet off the floor, of course. Good exercise for the core and it won't interfere with watching (unless you fall off LOL). You can hold a dumbbell and pass it from one hand to another (at the front, behind your back, above your head, etc.) You can kneel on the ball, too - more difficult.

OMG! How did I miss this thread? Anyway...I LOVE HOUSE!

Seriously...here's what I did during the House marathon. I went iTunes and I paid $1.99 an episode for three of my favorite episodes, loaded then on my iPhone went over to the gym and set the iPhone on the elliptical. Yes, you can totally watch House, and be at the gym.

I watched like four hours of House yesterday. If only I'd done some exercise while I watched it!

LOL Omg Midwife I love you! You've got quite a thinking cap on. And especially if you do all those things in that show even if you just watch one ep you'll have you exercise in for the day! My mom is OBSESSED with the show and I watch it with her ocassionally and it's amazing how right you are because he does do those things A LOT in episodes. You should also throw in doing something for when he makes a sarcastic or snide comment or breaks Cutty's chops because then you'll be working out the whole episode pretty much haha!!!

Oh my god, I love House!! I wanted that marathon too...awesome. I have such a huge crush on House...haha.


I really love the idea of a "drinking game" for that show, but instead of drinking, excerising!!
