If you're anything like me, you can only sit on the couch for so long... and by so long... that means about four hours. So what have I been doing to stay active while also trying to stay inside? A lot of YouTube and free app workouts. 

My absoulte FAVORITE is a YouTuber named "Madfit." This YouTube channel has everything from warm ups and cool downs, full body workouts, stretches, cardio, and my personal favorite, song workouts. Madfit works out to a lot of Q104 songs! Some of my favorite song work outs are "Blinding Lights," "Yummy," and "Physical." Check them out below!
