Video games and working out: A great combination

I don’t consider myself a huge gym rat by any means, but over this quarantine, I put together two activities that not many people before me have combined: working out and playing video games. It all started after a massive weekend bender of Fortnite where I did nothing but sit on the couch for hours in a row. I still wanted to game harder, but I also wanted to get some exercise. That’s when I came up with a pretty good routine, if I do say so myself. Throughout this article, I am going to take you through my different workout routines for a couple different games.

I have to say that ever since I have started combining these two activities, I have had a lot more fun working out than I had before. Of course, I do not work out when I play videogames all the time. I only use this method if I am feeling angsty and need to get some movement going on while I still want to run some games with my friends. Try this method out for yourself and you might be surprised how fun it is.
