EXERCISE!!! Just because money’s tight doesn’t mean you have to eliminate work-outs from your life altogether. There are tons of things you can do to stay toned for free – and most of them are literally at your fingertips. TV Interval Workout: Here’s how to get the most out of a TV workout: During the show, do low-impact, low effort exercises like leg lifts and squats. During the commercial breaks, that’s when you do crunches, push-ups and other exercises that require more exertion and focus.
