Fitness: The Couch Workout!

I was looking through weheartit and found this picture! It is from Glamour magazine written by Shaun Dreisbach designed by Bally Total Fitness.
I thought it was the coolest thing! It is great to do if your watching your favourite show and still want to work out. I will type out all the moves because it might be hard to read:
Sofa Squat
What it works: Your butt and thighs
Sit on edge of couch with feet hip-width apart, knees aligned directly over ankles. Stand, place hands on hips, then bend knees and squat down to sit on couch, but only let your butt tap the edge, as shown; return to standing. Do two sets of 15 reps.
Cushion Crunch
What it works: Your abs and obliques
Lie on couch and straighten legs; extend arms overhead by ears. Lift leg towards ceiling, keeping it straight, as you lift shoulders off couch and reach both hands for left toes, as shown; pause, then lower to start. Do 15 reps, switch legs and repeat. Do two sets.
Split Lunge
What it works: Your thighs and calves
Stand in front of your couch; extend left leg back, resting on ball of foot on couch, hands on hips. Bend knee 90 degrees as shown (don't let knee go past toes); pass through heel and return to start. Do 15 reps, switch legs and repeat. Do two sets. 
Incline Push-up
What it works: Your chest, arms and shoulders
Place hands shoulder-width apart on edge or arm of couch; walk feet back so legs are straight and you're up on toes. Bend elbows and lower chest towards couch, as shown; push back up. Do as many as you can with abs pulled in and hips aligned. Rest and repeat.
Remote Rear Fly
What it works: Your back and shoulder
Lie face down on couch, left arm off edge and extended towards floor, holding the remote or any light weight object as shown. Raise remote up and out too shoulder height, squeezing shoulder blades together, pause, lower to start. Do 15 reps, switch sides and repeat. Do two sets.
