5 Workouts Fit for a Couch Potato
We all know how tough it can be to balance your work life and your home life while still finding the time to fit in a workout. For most adults, this is one of the most common struggles when it comes to working out -- we just never seem to have enough of time.

Because of this, after getting home from a long day at work, we often resort to plopping right down on the couch, turning on the television and let's face it -- not getting up until it's time for bed. So, how can we stay active while still somehow maintaining our couch potato ways?

Luckily for us, celebrity trainer David Kirsch, clued us in on a few incredible moves we can do right from the couch (and with the family). It's a win-win! Check them out below, try out a few today and you'll slowly begin to feel the couch potato stress flow right out of you.

1) Reverse crunches



2) Squats



3) Shadow box



4) Push-ups



5) Tricep dips

5 great workouts that are perfect for the couch potato in all of us
Hot yoga today! #happyandhealthy 🙏💪✌️
Six months no beer. #GOTG Kinda douchey to post this but my brother made me.
Last night after a 17hour day running around London with the @VictoriasSecret #Angels and attending the #BFAs, I squeezed in a midnight work out with my trainer #JustinGelband to get ready for the #VSFashionShow (Dedication....or insanity? 💪👊)
One day I'll get the therapy I need. Until then... #HeavyIronFightsThePain #CheaperThanAShrink #NoFannyPacks My only drawback is f*cked up calloused hands.
Monday with @gunnarfitness!!! I am determined to get my pre-hamptons, pre- sympathy kourtney pregnancy weight off. Nothing good comes easy. Why do I blame Kourt though?!? Lol
