I think #quarantinelife has a lot of people experimenting with their workout routine, myself included.
But let’s be honest there are times when I just want to do something quick, something where it requires me to just lay on a mat. I created what I’m calling my “Lazy Girl Workout” for days like those. This workout focuses on arms & abs (two of my problem areas).
Let me just start by saying, I am in NO WAY shape or form a personal trainer. I do not have professional training & am not pretending to. I am just sharing some exercises that have been working for me. When done on a consistent basis, you’ll start to see some results. I already see a teeny, tiny bit of definition in my abs.
This entire workout should take you about 30 minutes. I typically watch an episode of Schitt’s Creek or Will & Grace while doing this workout (it’s a great distraction). All you need is a mat (or literally just lay on the floor) plus a pair of dumbbells (or canned goods, gallons of milk- whatever you have around the house to use as weights).
This workout is three rounds. Meaning you will do each move listed below (for the amount of reps listed by each move) and then will complete the sequence again two more times. Take breaks when you need to & make sure you’re drinking some water between each round.
1. Reverse crunches (15 reps)
2. Weighted Russian Twists (30 total, 15 each side)
3. Modified V Sit (15 reps)
4. Toe Touches (30 total, 15 each side)
5. Alternate Heel Touches (30 total, 15 each side)
6. Froggy Crunch (15 reps)
7. Side/Oblique Crunch (15 each side)
8. Chest Press (15 reps)
9. Chest Flys (15 reps)
10. Skull Crusher/Tricep Extension (15 reps)
