Ladies nobody really wants a flabby belly. Weight gain in the stomach area is unhealthy and unattractive. We all know these facts, but it is still hard to get motivated sometimes.
Bed exercises are a great solution for people who aren’t used to working out. People with health and mobility issues could also benefit from these tummy exercises you can do in bed. It’s pretty simple. Let’s get started.
Tummy Toner #1
Remove your pillow from under your head and place it under your lower back. This extra lift will help you get maximum impact from this tummy exercise. Put your hands at your side, palms down. With your feet together, slowly lift your legs while keeping your ankles touching. Tighten your tummy muscles and breathe in. While you continue to breathe in, slowly spread your legs apart. Count to 5. Bring your legs back together slowly and then slowly bring them down. Start with just 5 and increase by one each day you exercise.
Tummy Toner #2
Remove your pillow from under your head. Stack two pillows at the foot of your bed. Lie flat on the bed with your feet elevated. Cross your arms over your chest. Breathe in deeply as you pull your stomach in towards your back. Breathe out as you lift your upper body towards your feet. The distance you lift up is not important. You’ll feel the burn! Breathe in as you lie down again. Relax your muscles then repeat. Do this exercise 5 times and increase by one each day you exercise.
Tummy Toner #3
This twisting exercise is also good for your lovehandles! Lie flat on the bed with no pillow support. Stretch out your arms to your side above shoulder length. Keep your shoulders and arms flat on the bed while you roll your head to the right. At the same time lift your right knee to your chest. Breathe in while you tighten up your stomach muscles. Now, breathe out as you roll your right knee and hip to the floor on your left side. Can you feel the twist? Don’t stretch yourself until you hurt! If you can’t reach the floor all the way it is all right. Don’t hurt yourself by pressing yourself too far too soon. Breathe out as you slowly roll back to the original position returning your knee and leg too. Rest. Then roll your head to the left and do the same exercise on the opposite. Do this exercise on both sides 5 times resting in between. Increase as it becomes easier.
Ladies these tummy exercises you can do in bed will get you on your way to be fit in no time!
