Shopping Workout For Cyber Monday

Trick Yourself Into Working Out on Cyber Monday

We all love shopping online because it is so easy, but it is also completely sedentary. Unlike a mall visit, which is all about walking, cyber purchases are an easy click away — not a lot of calories burned. Take charge of your fitness as your rack up charges on your credit card and burn something other than money on Cyber Monday! We say add a challenge to your online shopping experience.

The Cyber Monday Burpee Challenge

Here are the details of the challenge.

  • For every full-priced item you purchase online, do five burpees.
  • If the item is at a reduced price, do 10 burpees — you're spending less money and burning more calories!
  • Do not wait to do your reps. Move away from the computer and complete your burpees each time you add the item to your virtual basket.
  • Keep a tally of your total reps of burpees. If you hit 100, we say buy yourself something special too.

How to Do a Burpee

In case you need a refresher on the move that everyone loves to hate, here's how to do a burpee.

  1. Lower into a crouching squat with your hands on the floor.
  2. Do a squat thrust by jumping your feet back into a plank position.
  3. Do one basic push-up, bending the elbows and then straightening back to plank.
  4. Jump the feet forward to the hands, and come into a squat.
  5. Do an explosive jump straight up, getting as much height as you can.
