10 Lazy Girl Exercise Routine

I know I have been jumping to one topic to another with each of my blog post for a while now. Sorry for that, but every time I take up some work, I share it with you! Recently I decided to exercise. Yes, I know. Those of you who know me and seen me lately might be ROTFL right now. After irregular routine and laziness, just for the heck of it, I have been working out lately. So I have put down my exercise routine for those who are lazy like me (if any).

Before reading on further, let me tell you this workout is seriously for lazy people. The exercise routine is quite  simple and has basic moves. But surely does affect your body muscles and tones your body. So here it goes…

arm-swings

1. Arm Swings:

Arm swings or exaggerated scissor jacks is the workout to burn unwanted fat on your arms, legs and obliques. Usually people do it as a warm up exercise but you can do it any ways as it includes movement of the entire body.

  1. Stretch your arms to your side and legs shoulder width apart.
  2. Put your right leg behind you and crossing the other leg. Only during arm swings, stretch back your leg.
  3. Cross your arms with one hand on top of the other.
  4. When shifting from your right side to your left, let your arms loose and sway them.
  5. Remember, right leg back- right arm on top and left leg back- left arm on top.
  6. Repeat 20 times.

lunges

2. Lunges:

Easy exercise, though.

  1. Take a step forward and kneel.
  2. Repeat 20 times, 10 with each leg.

Though most people consider it as stretching exercise, once you start doing it, you can feel this easy exercise can tone up your thighs and calf.

torso-twists

4. Torso Twists:

Another stretching exercise, this would affect your waist and love handles. Just turn towards your side with feet facing forward.

5. Side Leg Lifts:

You can literally do this exercise while on bed. The exercise effects on your waist and love handles and also on your legs.

  3. Try to keep your legs straight while doing this and as you put your leg down hold it in position for 2 seconds.
  4. When doing side leg lifts, make sure your feet don’t touch each other as you lower your leg.
  5. Do it in the same way on the left hand side.
  6. Repeat for 10 times on each side.

 

jumping-jacks

6. Jumping Jacks:

Remember the easiest exercise of all you did in school? Though it looks easy it is good for a warm up for a cardio exercise.

  2. For the first jump, bring your feet closer and clap your hands together on the the top of your head.
  3. To the following jump, stretch your legs out and hands down.

  2. Bend towards the either side of your body.
  3. You can do this with or without stretching your arms.
  4. Repeat 20 times.

 

cross-toe-touches

8. Cross Toe Touches:

Another school time workout.

  1. Stand with your legs spread out. You can stand with legs shoulder width apart or wider depending whether you can bend as far as possible.
  2. With your arms straight, bend down towards the floor and touch the opposite hand and foot. So the right hand touches left foot and the left hand touches the right foot.
  3. Do try to keep your legs straight as you bend down for this exercise is meant to stretch the muscles of your thighs and affect the ones at your waist too.
  4. Repeat 20 times.

bridges

9. Bridges: 

This too you can do while you lying down on your bed.

  1. Lie on your back. Bent your knees and keep them hip distance apart. The feet should be flat and firm on the surface you are lying.
  2. Keep your feet as close to your body as possible and arms straight and faced down to the side of your body.
  3. Once in position, lift your hips upwards so that your body is aligned parallel to your knees. Hold for sometime and go back to the original position.
  4. Repeat 20 times.

 

calf-raises

10. Calf Raises:

This calf and leg workout can be done anytime, anywhere.

  1. While you are standing,bring your feet closer. Raise your heel and stand on your toes.
  2. Hold for 2 seconds and come back to original position.
  3. Repeat.
  4. To take it a level higher, stand with your feet apart.

This exercise helps tone your calves and legs muscles.

The best part of all these exercises are that they are easy to do but also affect your body. You can do these when doing some work, when you are busy with mobile phones, watching t.v and so.

That’s all for now. I hope this was helpful and even though it said ‘lazy girl’, anyone can do it.
