I’m a personal trainer and this is how I work out without leaving bed
Getting to the gym in the morning can be a struggle for many people who would rather enjoy the comfort of their nice warm bed.
But now a personal trainer has revealed the way to exercise your glutes without leaving your bed.
Erika Taylor, from the US, shared the three easy exercises to get a perfect perky bum.
Taking to TikTok, she begins by showing a lateral leg lift.
Lying down on her side with her legs stretched out, she slowly lifts and then lowers her leg for 60 seconds, before flipping over and doing the same on the other side.

Next, she tries leg raises.
Lying down on her stomach, she lifts and lowers each leg for 60 seconds total, before resting.
Finally, Erika does glute bridges for 60 seconds, which involves lying on your back with bent knees before slowly lifting and lowering your bottom.
Erika’s followers were quick to praise the easy workout, with many loving the fact they didn’t need to leave the bed.
‘I like that the workout is on the bed! My favourite place thanks girl, I have been working out everyday now,’ said one.
‘Hahaha, love it,’ wrote another.
‘Finally,’ commented a third.

Erika’s advice comes after a personal trainer shared her simple trick for banishing love handles – and it’s all down to a 15-minute workout you can do at home.
Rachael Attard, a sports scientist from Queensland, specialises in women’s bodies and is famous for her ‘lean legs’ programs.
And her 15-minute love handles workout is one of the most requested yet from clients and involves side plank lifts, lying triple taps, donkey kick extensions, side leg lifts and inner and outer thigh blasts.
‘Complete each exercise for 45 seconds without any rest. And do all exercises on one leg before the other,’ she said in a demonstrative Pilates-style video while wearing ankle weights.
‘Do two to three rounds.’

She also added that to get ride of love handles the secret is reducing body fat overall through diet and lower stress and cortisol levels; the latter causes fat storage on your hips.
‘Resistance exercises are important because the more muscle you have, the easier it will be to lose weight and to slim down your belly,’ Rachael said.
Following a healthy diet is key. Rachael’s go-to rule is eating plenty of vegetables, two to three serves a day of fruit, lean protein, good fats and whole grain carbs in moderation.
‘You need to also consider how much you eat. If your body only needs 1500 calories per day, and you’re eating 2000 calories per day, it doesn’t matter if the 2000 calories are all clean and healthy. You will still gain weight,’ she added.
