Fitness Tips for the Bedroom

The weather in London has been terrible over the last few days with non-stop rain and quite a few people have said they'd rather not even venture outside.

Still, that's no excuse not to get your exercise done. If you can't go to the gym, I'll bring the gym to you.

Here's a quick 3 step indoor workout that will both strengthen and tone your bum, arms, thighs and abs while giving you a great cardio workout. It won't take long and you won't get rained on!

Run through 15 reps of each exercise and then repeat the sequence. And then once more for good measure if you're feeling keen...

1. Squats

Stand upright with your feet hip-width apart. Sit back, bending at your hips and your knees. Keep your knees above your toes. Stand straight and repeat x 15

2. Squat Thrusts

Place your hands in a press up position and bend your knees so they are between your elbows. Kick your feet out together behind you so your body is in a straight line from shoulders to ankles. Bring the knees back to the start position and repeat x 15.

3. Seated Rows

Wrap a resistance band around your feet making sure you have tension in the band with your arms straight. Keeping your knees slightly flexed and your shoulders relaxed, bend your elbows and squeeze your shoulder blades together to bring the ends of the band towards your body. Straighten your arms and repeat x 15.
