TV Show Workout Games!

We all remember the college days, where you’d sit down in front of a TV Show and have a set of rules, each with a number of drinks attached. Things like “Take a sip whenever Phoebe does something stupid”. Well now there’s a whole new, healthier way to play along with your favorite TV shows – with workouts!

The premise is similar, different common occurrences on the show require you to do a different workout.
