Feeling weak and lazy when waking up in the morning? Charge up yourself with this easy but effective exercise you can do right in your bed to boost you out of it.

  • Hip Raise

Lie on your back with your knees bent, heels close to your butt, and arms by your sides with palms facing down. Press into your heels as you lift your hips up so your body forms a line between your knees and shoulders, then back down. 
 Repeat this process for a count of 10 reps.

  • Leg Raise

Begin by lying down on the floor. Place your arms by your side and legs firmly together, stretched out. Raise your legs off the floor while still stretched out and firmly together till your feets are facing up and then back down to count for a rep of one.  
 Repeat this procedure for a count of 10 reps.

  • Side Plank

To get in this position, lie on your right side with your elbow beneath your shoulder and legs placed together. Place your left hand flat on your left side or on your left hip. With your stomach tucked and held in, lift your hips off the floor until you’re balancing on your forearm and feet only then back down.
 Repeat this procedure for a count of 10 reps.

  • Dolphin Plank

Get into plank position with your forearms and palms on the bed, and your shoulders stacked over your elbows. Your body should form a straight line between your head and your heels. Keeping your core tight and legs straight, lift your hips straight up into the air. Pause, then release to starting position with control. 
 Repeat this procedure for a count of 10 reps.

  • Scissor legs

Lie on your back with your hands underneath your hips and your palms facing down. Bring both feet straight up into the air and point your toes. Keeping both legs as straight as possible, engage your core as you lower your right leg down toward the bed with control. Without touching down, bring your leg back up to starting position. Then repeat on the opposite side.
