Let's be real. January is almost over and we've either killed our fitness/health resolutions or we've completed avoided them. No matter what your circumstance is, we all have those days where we don't want to get out of bed to workout. Or just get out of bed in general. I feel you.
While there are a million ways you can get a workout in, I bet you never thought you could get an effective workout on your bed. Well I'm here to tell you that's not true! You can use your bed and your bodyweight to get in a great workout and break a sweat!
So get comfy on your bed and follow along, because no matter if you're still in your pyjamas or you bravely got into workout clothes, you'll feel the burn.
The circuit has 5 moves that you do for 45 seconds each with no rest in between.
First Move: Squat Stomp
Get onto your bed and kneel down. Get up on one leg and then the other until you're in a half squat. Go back the same way you came up and repeat for 45 seconds.
Second Move: Wide to Narrow Push-up
On the edge of your bed, place your hands more than shoulder-width apart and perform a push-up. After that push-up, place your hands closer to the middle and perform another push-up. Repeat for 45 seconds.
Third Move: Elevated Lunge
Place your leg on the edge of the bed and get as forward as you can. With the other leg, lunge down and up. Repeat for 45 seconds.
Fourth Move: Bicycle Crunches
At the edge of the bed, make sure you're only slightly sitting up with some of your legs off of the bed. Perform a bicycle crunch, which is opposite knee to elbow. Repeat for 45 seconds.
Fifth Move: Roll-up to Hop
Laying down, crunch up with your abs until you're standing. Then perform a hop and lay back down. Repeat for 45 seconds.
Rest for 1 minute and then do the circuit one more time performing the elevated lunge on the opposite side this time. This circuit is 8 minutes long all together. For more clear directions and a visual representation, watch the video below.
