Whether you’re just starting out or you want some lazy day exercises for when you’re not really feeling it, then these workouts are going to fit you just right.

Personally, I’m not the most ambitious when it comes to toning my body, but when I find the right workouts I tend to start seeing the benefits pretty fast.

Now I know a lot of you like easy and simple workouts and some of you also don’t have much time to keep your body in shape. And that’s fine; it’s the reason I made this post.

I wanted to find some great exercises that you could do every day (or…almost every day), and get in shape, even if you’re not feeling it.

So find what you want to do, schedule some time in your day to workout, and get in shape at your own pace. It’s all about small steps now that lead to bigger ones later on.

One Song Workout: Icona Pop “I Love It”

Now this one is great if you don’t have much time in your day to workout. Also, it’s a fun song to exercise to and it’ll help you keep your pace up. So in 2:35, you’ll get your heart racing and some sweat action going on…but that’s it! Unless you want to do it a second time, then that’s just fine.

If it’s summer, then you want to look good in a bathing suit and even if it’s winter, it still feels great to know that your legs are in shape. And besides, getting your thighs fit isn’t the only great thing about these exercises; it’s the fact that you’re on your back…can’t get lazier than that.

15 Minute Total Body Workout

They say to exercise 30 minutes a day, but if you don’t have time for that and you have time for more than just a 1 song workout, than this one’s gonna fit you to a tee (whatever that means).

7 Minute Hiit Workout

Now high-intensity training is a great way to get fit fast. And this one’s awesome since it’s shortened down for us people who want to burn a lot of calories but don’t want to spend too long doing it.

5 Minutes of Your Time for Some Flat Abs

Now I thought that the name was just a bit deceiving (I did not get flat abs in just 5 minutes), but I get their point. If you do this 5-minute workout every day, you’re bound to get flat abs. Which is pretty great since 5 minutes on my abs is probably more than enough time for me to focus on one part of my body.

But if You Don’t Have Five Minutes

If you’re really in a rush or can only do so much, try one or two of these for a couple of minutes and then call it good. Find any time you can to getting healthier and feeling good.

No Squats Sounds Pretty Good

Now if squats really aren’t your thing, then these exercises are going to fit you just fine. Also, they’re going to allow you to fit into smaller clothes more often. And you’re laying down, so if you don’t even want to get out of bed, but still want to get in shape, then this one’s probably for you.

It might seem a bit silly that these would be called “lazy” workouts, but to be honest, it really is all about small changes. We’re humans which means we’re relatively lazy by nature, so creating the habit and the willpower to go after something takes some work. And when we do short exercises like this, it only gives us the ability to go further and do more.

So try one of these exercises out and let me know what you think. I’d love to hear about your results!

Lastly, I’ve also written a post on how to lose weight fast without exercise in a month, so if you’re not a fan of any of these exercises, be sure to check this one out!

  1. I would struggle to do any of these exercises as I have had spinal surgery about 10 years ago, any suggestions for exercises that no not put a strain on my back.

  2. I like so many of these suggestions, BUT I have a large DRAM (2.5 finger split) left after 4 pregnancies, and I’ve heard so many conflicting opinions about what is safe to do, and what is not. So, of the LAZY variety, what ARE safe exercises?
