Lazy Girl Fitness – Reading a Book

This week’s Lazy Girl Fitness Routine is all about how to get fit while reading a book or magazine. The exercises we are covering will work your thighs, quads and your butt.

1. Leg Raises – Sit with your back up against a wall, bend one knee into your chest. With the other leg lift it up and down 20 times on each leg.

2- Side Lifts – Lay on your side, and start to lift your leg, start with 10 low lifts, 10 middle lifts and then 10 high lifts. Don’t forget to switch sides!

3- Butt Lifts! Lay your magazine or book flat and lift your leg up. Do 15 with a bent leg and 15 with a straight leg, then switch. Make sure your lifting only to horizontal and your squeezing your tush as well!

  1. Fun tips! My typical reading position is on the couch legs out, leaning against pillows. so my exercise is doing bicycle movements with my legs every once in a while to get movement in! :)
    Also, as a New Yorker myself, I’m surprised to see a Vegas girl is a Giants fan? Did you grow up in NY too? Go Giants :)

  2. Hi there you are just what I’ve been looking for. With all the best intentions I just can’t stick To an exercise routine. So I was wondering do you mail people with few excersises every day?

  4. I found this on pintrest and it is absolutely fantastic. Thanks for making sure my lazy book worm self gets some kind of workout in.

  5. I feel like there’s no way I’d be able to concentrate on the book while doing these things (I have pretty severe ADHD), but I am going to give it a go! Thanks for the tips!

  6. You are brilliant. Seriously. This will change my life. If I do it. At least I can’t play the “time” card as an excuse anymore. :)
