Every one’s greatest wish is to tone their bodies and look their best while doing the barest minimum, We all want to do less work for more results, and although that won’t particularly work in the long run, It is a good enough short term goal that just may guarantee great results. By now we all know the dangers of eating too much and exercising too little: heart disease, stroke, diabetes, etc. So why not get in as much exercise as you can, even on an absolute lazy day.
The Quick Step Guide to Working Out while Lazy:
1.Accept It’s A Lazy Day
The first step towards growth in life is acceptance, and workouts need that same level of precision, So whenever you take this guide into consideration, Make sure you accept it’s a lazy day and you would totally love to not spend time breaking your back in the gym, but instead would much rather spend the day toning your body, while lounging around and practically doing nothing.
2.Carry out only bodyweight exercises
You have no reason to waste your time with any type of weights. So toss away the dumbbells, resistance bands and barbells, and focus on bodyweight exercises. Do every exercise routine without the need for any weights or assistance, just use the force and weight of your body to propel your movements and be sure to have a stress-free workout routine.
3.Do your first work-out in bed…………..(with a show on Tv).
You can set a timer on your phone, while carrying out your first exercise in bed, or you can lounge comfortably, ditch the phone timer, and use Tv commercials to time your routine and the speed at which you get it done. In actuality, you just need to grab a pillow, and use it as leverage to do quick exercise routines while lying aback or lying on your stomach. The typical exercise set required here are lying leg raises, glute bridges or side-lying hip abductions, ’cause they tone your lower body without you having to do any active work.
4.Carry out only 10 reps for every exercise routine (with a song).
The golden rule while working out on a lazy day is that you should do everything in tens, The ideal routine will be 10 reps for 2 sets of each exercise, which would ensure your muscles don’t get cramped in any way. You can also use your favorite songs to workout, Shalom from SELF WEBSITE says, “I think this is a very fun way to get in some movement! Choose one of your favorite activities, and do it for the length of one of your favorite songs,” before you know it, you’ll be having so much fun that you’ll be three or four songs deep before you even notice you haven’t stopped.
5.Do Kick-backs while getting ready
While brushing your teeth and scrubbing your body, focus all your emotions on trying to activate your glutes and performing kick-backs as you wash your face, clean your teeth or take your bath. Just lift up your legs behind you and keep moving them in back-and-forth or circular motion, to get the muscles rolling, and tone your lower body .
6.Perform Seated Leg-lifts while driving/commuting to work.

7.Drink Enough Water
“No one wants to work on their lazy day, Keeping yourself properly hydrated will not only aid in fat loss, but it will also help to keep your energy levels up from a day of sitting,” says Garner. “Get yourself a bottle to track your levels, as you’re probably not drinking nearly as much water as you thought. This also gives you another reason to get up and move to fill up your bottle throughout the day.” Plus, dehydration can cause your metabolism to be sluggish and can make you hungrier.
8.Do sitting clenches while sitting at work.
While sitting at work, make sure you clench your glutes as hard as you can, and release at intervals. It’s a great way to work your gluteal muscles, and prevent the muscles from atrophy or going dormant.
