World Cup workout

June 22, 2014 2 min read

If you're watching the World Cup, but want to be breaking a sweat just like the players on the pitch, then why not workout while you watch the match? This workout allows you to keep updated with how your team is doing, while also burning some fat; and it's totally up to you how long you workout for! Perfect! This will be particularly beneficial for you if your other half is "forcing" you to watch the game, but you don't really want to. That's because you will technically be watching the match, but also doing something you actually want to be doing.

Whenever the following things happen, perform the assigned exercise:  

A goal is scored - 10 burpees

A player misses a shot at goal - 10 mountain climbers

A player dives - 10 push ups

A substitution is made - 20 squats

A player gets a yellow card - Plank for 20 seconds

A player gets a red card - Reverse plank for 20 seconds

A manager gets irate - 10 one-armed half burpees (alternating)

The referee makes a decision you disagree with - 10 surfer jumps

A corner is taken - 10 bicycles

The goalie dives the wrong way - 10 jump lunges

A goal kick is taken - 20 jumping jacks

When a penalty is taken - 30 high knees

When a free kick is taken - 10 v-ups

When a player does a throw-in - 10 supermans

  Always remember that you need to keep hydrated throughout, and workout to the best of your ability. Don't feel that you need to complete this for the full 90 minutes, as that would be pretty difficult...especially if you're new to working out. You know your body better than anyone, and, when exercising, you should be pushing yourself to work hard and improve, but not to the point that you cause yourself any damage; pulling a muscle is not good, so take it at your own pace.

Enjoy the match!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
