(Source: PacificCoastNews.com, Axelle/Bauer-Griffin)This year, while watching the Oscars and admiring those fit, toned, beautiful bodies on the red carpet, how about replacing your usual Oscars party drinking (or eating) with a workout game? That's right, instead of downing a shot (or eating a cupcake) whenever something crazy happens, we suggest hitting the deck and doing ten pushups.
Or, more specifically, take a cue from these excerpts from Equinox's Ramp Up to Red Carpet workout, created by the brand's expert trainers. We've chosen our favorite Equinox moves from this workout and cued them to our favorite predictable Oscars moments, so see if you can keep up with this star-worthy program. Your physique will thank you.
