'Work me out’ to the ball game

It’s that time of the year again. Opening Day has come and gone, and a brand-new season of MLB Baseball is here. The 162-game season is by far the longest of the four main sports in America and teams play basically every day. That’s a huge time commitment and it makes getting a little exercise a challenge. But don’t just sit on the bench – here’s a workout you can try during the ball game.

Between every half inning, there are commercials while the teams switch positions, and the pitcher warms up. This is at least two minutes of nothing happening. You can maximize this time by simply doing 10 push-ups and 10 sit-ups. That’s it. Get your workout in and watch as much baseball as you want by simply doing 10 push-ups and 10 sit-ups every half inning. Seems easy, doesn’t it? Well, that’s because it is. It doesn’t take a lot to do 1 set of 10 pushups and 1 set of 10 sit ups. However, when you think about it, you’re not only doing one set. If you do this every half inning, you’ll end up doing 18 sets of push-ups and sit-ups. That’s 180 reps of each! That will put a strain on your muscles from the sheer numbers.
If 10 proves to be too difficult, start with 5 until you can work your way up. The key is to be diligent and do the exercises every half inning. It may not feel like much, but if you do it consistently and every time you watch a baseball game, you will see the results sooner than you think.
