Lazy Girl Fitness – Leggy

Come be apart of my journey on Instagram at TIU.MEG:)

Ready to get those legs smoking hot? Try my Lazy Girl Leggy workout.

I have a two-story house so I like to take advantage of the stairs, if you don’t have stairs you can always use a step stool.

Exercise one – Step Jumps! Jump up and down on the stairs with two feet. Try to do 10 without stopping and then slowly add more as it gets easy. Also try to jump through your whole foot almost like your on a trampoline.

Exercise Two – One Leg Balanced Calf Raises. Balance yourself using the railing and the wall and try to do 15 calf raises on each leg while balancing on the other.

Lazy Girl Fitness – Play Like A Kid

Ready to play like a kid…or play with your kids? These two exercises will help your cardio and help you tone up your lower back and booty!

First – Climb the Mountain. Start in a push up position with your feet together and your booty low. Then start “running” by switching your feet. Try to do a minute without stopping, or you can race your little one up a “mountain”.

Second – Superman!!! Start laying on your stomach then lift up and hold. You can also move your feet back and forth like scissors for even more of a challenge.

Lazy Girl Fitness – Microwave Abs

Come be apart of my journey on Instagram at TIU.MEG:)

Raise your hand if you are so busy most of your meals (healthy or not) are made in the microwave. I know that mine are!

Now, Raise your hand if you want Abs of Steel, luckily I’ve got two fab ab workouts that you can do while you microwave your dinner.

Exercise one: Abs Twists – Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, stand up as tall as you can and squeeze your abs. Twist back and forth as many times as you can, the more you do the better your abs will get!

Exercise 2 – Leg Lift Twists – After you burn out your abs twisting, try it with a leg twist. Same stance as the first exercise but then I lift my opposite leg with the twist and “crunch” down a little.

Lazy Girl Fitness – Laundry

Come be apart of my journey on Instagram at TIU.MEG:)

Who doesn’t have to do laundry? It’s one chore that is never-ending because even while you wash everything you own…you still have the clothes on your back that will be dirty after this chore.

Enter Lazy Girl Fitness, Laundry style. Here are two things I like to do while I’m doing laundry. The first is a dead lift with the laundry basket. Squat down, lift your laundry with you and then above your shoulders for a little extra. Do this 15 times each time you have a new load (dirty or clean).

Once you’ve dead lifted your laundry, time to fold it. What better way to fold but with a wall sit! Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and then proceed to sit against the wall (keeping your back flat) and fold. If it gets too easy, try going on your toes in a releve, shoot for folding 5 pieces of laundry at a time.

Lazy Girl Fitness – Reading a Book

Come be apart of my journey on Instagram at TIU.MEG:)

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!

 

Fitness For Lazy Girls/Wednesday Challenge

Come be apart of my journey on Instagram at TIU.MEG:)

*Subscribers* If you got this e-mail there was a glitch, a fabulous glitch that took all but one sentence out of my original post* I’m annoyed!

I have a confession to make. I am a lazy fitness junkie. Anything that I can do quickly and sporadically throughout the weekdays until I can get to the gym for a more intense workout, I’ll take it! So I’ve come up with Lazy Girl Workouts.

This one is called: Brush my Teeth Workout (Takes 2 minutes, the time you should be taking for brushing your teeth)…and yes I brush my teeth while doing this.

1. Toe Raises – Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, raise up to a high releve and then back down. I do this 20 times.

2. Side Lunges – Start in a standing position, lunge to the Left or Right then push-off your lunge leg. One leg stays stationary at all times, do 12 on each leg then switch to the other side.

3. Stationary Lunges – I put my leg on the bath tub then proceed to do 15 stationary lunges on each leg. (tip – If you can’t see your toes then your foot is to close, push it out).

Then spit and rinse your mouth! Your toothbrush workout is over, and it should take you about 2 minutes!!!

Wednesday Challenge:
