Lazy Person’s Guide To Working Out
You come home from work, and the last thing you want to do is work out. All you want is to grab a beer, some pizza and relax in front of your TV until falling asleep.
However, you realize that if you continue doing this you will get fat huge and soon TLC will be making a “My 600 pound life” episode about you.
These exercises are tailor-made for the lazy person. You can do them while waiting for your favorite show to start, or while the commercials are on. They are simple, effective and you don’t need anything to perform them.
1. Shoulder Touches
Start in a push-up position and begins touching your shoulder with your other arm. As you will quickly learn, this works your core and your arms as well. Add to that the overall strength your body needs to stay in a push-up position, and you got yourself a quick and easy workout that can works your entire body.
Rep wise, do them until you feel your core is burning, then do a few more. You don’t have to overdo it with every set.
2. Squat Holds
You’re watching The Flash and suddenly a block of boring commercials start. Here’s a quick way of killing some time until the show starts again. Go into a squat position, pick an annoying commercial and have a good ol’ fashioned Mexican standoff with the commercial.
Ok, let me elaborate a bit, as soon as the commercial starts you get into a squat position. Hold that position for as long as you can, your end goal is to be able to outlast that annoying commercial.
It’s easy, it’s fun, and you can challenge your friends to do the same.
3. Walking Lunges
The movie ends, and you finally decide to take a bathroom break. Instead of walking, try performing lunges to the bathroom. Stretch out each lunge and do them walking to and from the bathroom.
Pure leg work that isn’t all that is stressful but effective. Doing a few sessions of these bad boys will bring you strength in your legs and butt while burning off some calories.

4. Standing Toe Touches
This is a basic stretch routine so you don’t stiffen up and become unable to tie your own shoes. Stretch your arms in front of your body and reach down towards your toes.
If you are flexible, you can wrap your hands around your hamstrings for a better stretch. If you are not, let your arms dangle in the air and slowly you will be able to reach your toes.
5. Hand Raise From Push Ups
Start in a push-up position and raise your hands alternately in front of your body. Try holding that position for a second or two before returning it back. It will work your shoulders and your core.
Aim for either a set time or high number of reps. Try doing the commercial trick like with the squat holds.
6. Alternating Superman
Get on your knees and raise your hand and leg. If you raised your left leg you should raise your right arm. It’s a very basic exercise that doesn’t need much energy to pull off.
7. Incline Push-Ups
Any kind of push-up variation is awesome, but this one requires very minimal resistance and you can do it while being pressed against a wall or a kitchen counter. It will work your triceps and your upper chest.
Wrapping It Up
Even if you feel you are so lazy that you can’t be bothered to do this workout, try it anyways. A small step forward will create momentum that can last a lifetime. It is hard to get started, but once you start noticing a change in your physique and physical ability, you’ll be off to the gym in no time.
