We Created a Love Is Blind Workout Game, Because Full-Body Cringing Just Wasn't Enough

As tempting as it may be to turn every Love Is Blind episode into a drinking game, some of us (hi, me) are sorely hangover-prone, and the plethora of bonkers moments on the Netflix show would result in quite the killer headache. Instead, I've created a workout game to help me and other LIB devotees tone up at home as the drama unfolds on screen. (Although, TBH, watching the show is a workout in and of itself because it prompts every muscle in my body to simultaneously cringe, but I digress . . . )

The rules are simple: for each of the common (and not-so-common) actions and phrases that pop up during the show, there's a corresponding equipment-free exercise move to perform. For example, every time a contestant says "I love you" for the first time, you must drop it low for 10 squats, and whenever Jessica refers to the 10-year age gap between her and Mark, you have to do a set of burpees. Fair warning: there are lots and lots of burpees in your future — don't say I didn't warn you!

Whether you're binge-watching the series for the second time or just now hopping on the bandwagon, be sure to have this fun workout game on hand as you watch every episode. Without further ado, I present our official Love Is Blind Fitness Challenge.
