What better way to get your heart pumping first thing in the morning than to do a few exercises while still in bed? You’ll immediately have more energy and may even see a difference in your waistline after putting in a bit of time!
HERE ARE THE FIVE EXERCISES:
2. Full Body Crunch
3. Leg Raises
4. Single Leg Pulses
5. Wide Leg Cross Sit ups
Perform each move for 50 seconds with a 10 second break in-between exercises. If you have more time (say, on the weekends) feel free to repeat the exercise cycle a couple of times.
HERE’S HOW TO PERFORM EACH MOVE:
– Lie on your back in a neutral position (straight spine)
– Bend your knees and bring your shins up so that they are parallel to the floor.
– Place your hands behind your head, supporting the base of the skull. Keep the elbows wide.
– Use an exhale to pull your abs into a deep scoop, and leaving the pelvis in a neutral position (not tucked or tipped), curl the chin and shoulders off the mat up to the base of the shoulder blades.
