These 5 Exercises Make Waking Up & Working Out So Much Easier


So we already told you how obsessed we are with Kate Dunlop of Love Sweat Fitness (click here in case you don’t believe us). She’s back with another awesome workout that we actually want to do, even first thing in the morning when we’d totally rather be lying in bed looking at Instagram. Here are her 5 exercises to do right when you wake up!


Single Leg Bridge Crunch

Lie on your back and place your feet on the ground, knees bent, about hip distance apart. Extend one leg out in front of you. Lift your hips and extend your leg off the floor as you bend the knee and crunch it toward your hips. Extend the leg back out, lower and hover above the ground.


Forearm Plank Reach

Start in a forearm plank. Keep your hips stable and squared to the floor as you reach your right arm out in front of you. Bring it back to starting position and repeat on the opposite side.


Side Table Top Crunch

Start on your knees and lean over to one side, placing that arm on the floor. Extend your opposite leg out and reach your top arm over your head. Reach and stretch on the inhale. On the exhale, lift and crunch your knee to your elbow.


Triple Pulse Jump

Bring your legs wider than hip distance with your heels in, toes pointed out and hands at center. Lower down into a squat, pulse 3 times, then push off your toes to explode into the sky. Land softly and repeat.
