Afraid watching the debates will cut into your workout time?  Fear not! I can’t play drinking games right now (too close to competition) so join me in playing this exercise game.  It goes like this:

Whenever you hear _______________  do this ______________.

  • Stronger middle class – 5 burpees
  • Energy independence – 3 jumping jacks
  • Unfair trade practices/China – 5 sumo squats
  • Obama bringing up the mess he inherited from George W. Bush – run in a circle
  • Romney defend the 47% comment – 5 kickboxing moves of your choice
  • Children are our future (or some kid-related warm and fuzzy) – 10 push ups while having a temper tantrum

FYI – The first of the Presidential debates is going to be this Wednesday, Oct. 3 from 9-10:30 (EST) and will air on NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, C-Span and can also be seen online.  The focus will be on domestic policy.

If you want to learn more about Barack Obama’s policies, click here and if you want to learn more about Mitt Romney‘s ideas, click here.  Both link to their respective websites.

Hope you enjoy the debates now that you can get a good workout in there too.
