Workout while watching TV

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Zoefit expert, Shana Schneider says to start working out all you need is a throw pillow. Schneider stopped by Good Morning Connecticut to show us how to get in some stretching and muscle toning while watching TV.

You can watch the workout above.

Or try out these 3 easy ways to turn a pillow from a nap tool into an exercise tool:
1) Squeeze the pillow between your knees to work your inner thighs (add intensity w/ single leg extensions)
2) Move the pillow in a side to side twist to work your oblique muscles (add intensity w/ pillow overhead)
3) Use the pillow for a series of seated sit-ups (3-levels: pillow behind, pillow in front, pillow overhead)

*Bonus tip: Put the pillow on the floor for a one leg balance challenge to improve your core and posture and increase ankle strength!

She’s hosting a ZoeFit Workout Party on Thursday, September 15!
