How to Exercise in Bed
Work on your arms. Two-pound weights can be found for purchase at most any department store. While lying in bed, do 10 reps of curls with each arm, working the bicep. Sit up in bed and do 10 reps with each arm, bringing the weights above your head.
Do sit ups or toe touches. While crunches might be a little difficult to do in bed, you can still do a version of a sit-up or toe touches. Do 10, take a brief break, do 10 more, take another break and do 10, again.
Lift your body. Lying flat on your back, tense your body up and push your torso up toward the ceiling. Do 10 reps of this twice.
Do leg lifts. Still lying flat on your back, raise each leg, straightened, above your head in a series of 15 reps twice. Lie on your side and raise each leg above your head for a series of 15 reps each, and then repeat.
Do stretches. Swing your left leg over the right side of your body, keeping your left arm extended out to the left of you. Stretch out. Hold this position for 20 seconds. Repeat in the other direction.
