Lazy Much? 7 Easy Workouts To Do While Watching Netflix
You will agree with me that we want to be fit and never want to workout for even a single day in our lives, right? Obviously, who wants to get up at six in the morning when you can sleep till seven, wrapped in the warmth of your blanket, before you have to get ready for work or college. Or, who wants to workout and miss the latest episode of This Is Us?
Listen up, girls! That vacation body is not far away, because even though you love being a couch potato, you can still achieve that weight goal. We came up with a bunch of exercises you can easily do right in front of your TV or while you watch your favourite show on Netflix. So get up and get moving!
Lunges are a perfect, ‘anywhere, anyhow’ exercise. They do not require any special equipment and can be easily done between ad breaks. Lunges target your abdominal muscles, lower back muscles, and most of the muscles in the lower body. What are you waiting for, work on those glutes, now!
As the saying goes, ‘If you don’t know how long a minute is, do a plank’. A plank is one of the best exercises for building core strength along with hamstrings and glutes. It not only gives you a toned stomach but also improves your posture and balance.
3. RUN ON A TREADMILL
If you want a high-intensity workout, go for a run right inside your house. If you own a treadmill, just hop on it and keep running till your episode is complete. You won’t miss your favourite show, nor will you feel bad about not working out that day—well, because you did not!
4. DONKEY KICKS
If you want toned and tightened glutes, donkey kicks is just the exercise for you. All you need to do is, get on all fours, keep your neck and back straight, and lift your legs towards the air—as if you are kicking someone. Do this exercise to get your booty in gear, ladies.
Push-ups are a great full-body workout. They help you tone your arms, abs, and lower body. If you are a beginner, you can start with half push-ups—with your knees touching the ground and ankles crossed upwards, in the air. Take it slow, and become a fitter version of yourself.
6. HIP RAISES
Work on your glutes, hamstrings, and inner thigh muscles simultaneously. Do it regularly and strengthen and tone your abdominal muscles. One tip to follow is, keep your core tight and squeeze your glutes while you raise your hips. How else do you think Kim K gets her booty, eh?
7. WALL SQUATS
Strengthen weak muscles and increase flexibility with this easy exercise. Wall squats target the largest muscle in your body – the quadriceps, and makes it strong and firm. It also helps increase strength and endurance of your legs.
Achieving your body goal was never this easy, right?
