    Planks!

    Commercial breaks are around 2-minutes in length - thats the perfect amount of time for planks! Place your elbows and forearms on the ground, and push so the only other part of you touching the floor is your toes. This will help tighten your abdominals.

    Crunches

    Another classic ab workout, make it a challenge to see how many crunches you can do in a single commercial break!  Once you get good at it, you can start doing these during the show.

    Treadmill/Bike

    If you have a treadmill or stationary bike, this is the perfect time to dust it off.  Use it during the actual show, and use commercials as a break. Two episodes of your favorite sitcom and you've already trained for an hour!
