There’s no need to spend hours pounding the pavements, buy fancy equipment or fork out £££s on a gym membership – just use your bed!
Devised by personal trainer Greg Johnson for The Fine Bedding Company, this routine is fun and easy. So put on some music, get up and get going!
1. The Wake-Up Warm Up
Lean forward on your bed using both hands. Complete calf stretches, bending your front leg and stretching out your back leg until you feel a pulling sensation in your calf muscle. Stretch each leg for 30 sec. Then, carry out walking lunges around the bed 5 times, before high-knee running on the spot for 3 min.
2. Fat-Burning Bounces
Hop on your bed and bounce up and down for 3 min. Repeat this 3 times, introducing tuck jumps third time round.
3. Serious Squats
One of the most time-efficient ways to burn calories, squats are great for weight loss and will build muscle across your whole body, not just your legs! Place your hands in front of you and squat low to the ground (feet shoulder-width apart, back straight, sitting down into your bottom). Carry this out in 2 sets of 15.
4. Duvet Dips
Say goodbye to bingo wings: position your hands shoulder-width apart on the bed, positioning your feet on the floor in squat position. Straighten your arms and slowly bend them to lower your body, before lifting your body back up again to start position. Repeat 20 times, then take a break of no more than 20 sec and complete 2 more sets.
5. Pillow Pushups
Position your feet apart on the bed with hands resting on the floor, shoulder-width apart. With arms straight and bottom clenched, steadily lower towards the floor before raising back up again until your arms are straight. Carry this out 15 times and then repeat for 2 more sets.
Will you be giving these a go instead of hitting the gym?
