Try these easy to do exercises in the privacy of your home for effective results.
Are you in a dilemma — to get up in the morning and head to gym or would you like to just relax in your bed for some more time? Fret no more! You can have the benefit of both worlds — with these surprisingly simple exercise routines. It is also interesting to know that the bed can be quite a place for a workout, especially for toning, and lengthening workouts to help you balance the whole body weight.
Four point tick tock
Begin on all fours, close to the edge of the bed. Stretch your leg out, toward the floor. Keeping your lower belly engaged and your spine stretching out, lift your leg out to the side. Lower it back towards the floor, then lift it up to the back. Maintain a square pelvis and keep your shoulder blades wide on your back.
Lie on your back in a neutral spine position, with your buttocks close to the edge of the bed. Exhale to wrap your low, deep abdominals around your waist like a corset and bring your legs into tabletop position. On an exhale, lower one toe down toward the floor. Only go as low as you can while maintaining a neutral spine, and keep your abdominals pulled in. Repeat this 10 times.
Downward Dog To Plank
Downward-facing dog is a vital pose in yoga. To remove any strain from wrists, do this workout. It strengthens and stretches the whole body. Keep both hands and feet on the ground, lift your butt up in the air and your heels closer to the bed. This workout will increase your hamstring flexibility, tone your shoulders and strengthen your leg and arm.
Marching Hip Raises
The marching hip raise exercise increases strength and stability on the hips. One just needs to lie face up on the floor, with the knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Then steadily raise the hips, forms a straight line from shoulders to knees, and lift one knee to your chest. Continue to practice on both sides.
