The 10-Minute Workout You Can Do in Your Pyjamas
Fitting exercise into a busy morning routine can be challenging for even the most committed of fitness fans. But what if there was a magical workout you could complete without ever even leaving your bedroom? According to Into The Gloss, it's possible. Described as "less-is-more fitness", the routine that follows was developed with the help of Nike Master Trainer Traci Copeland so it's pretty legit. Sure, it's not Crossfit, but it does offer an easy way to fit more movement into your day. If you ask us, that's never a bad thing. There are eight moves in total but we've cherry picked four of our favourites. Keep scrolling for the 10-minute exercise routine you can do (mostly!) in bed.
A couple of quick bed crunches seems like a positive way to greet the day. Have a soft mattress? Make sure you draw in your core and push your lower back flat to avoid engaging the wrong muscles.
Are wall sits easier when paired with your first Instagram scroll of the morning? Probably. The positive distraction has got to help, right?
This one's a two-fer. Sip water with lemon or herbal tea (we like Ovvio's Rise & Shine blend, $20) while balancing on one leg at a time. Engage your core and glutes to keep steady and, if you're feeling particularly advanced, feel free to take things up a level. "Stand and balance on one leg and spell your name with your foot for ankle mobility. If you want something to wake up your core, you can lift your leg a little bit higher and go through the alphabet. Do that on both sides," instructs Copeland.
