Workout in bed: these exercises will help you start the day right

An exercise in bed gets you going in the morning. With simple stretching, relaxation, and movement, you can kick-start your body and start your day in a good mood.

Start your bed workout with a stretch

To get going when you wake up, start your workout in bed with a stretch.

  1. Lie on your back, stretch your arms out in front of you, and slowly lean toward your feet.
  2. Round your spine and head and try to touch your toes with your fingers.
  3. If you can, hold onto your toes for a moment and feel the stretch in your upper body and legs more clearly.
  4. After about 2 to 5 breaths, slowly and smoothly slide onto the pillow and repeat the exercise four more times.

Go to bed with the air bike

For the cells to work, lie on your back in bed. Set the pillow to one side or place it under your back or pelvis for support.

  1. The upper part of the body lies flat on the bed. The arms are relaxed next to the body.
  2. Now bend your legs and start pedaling with your legs in the air. This means that you do the same movements that you would do when riding a bike.
  3. To also feel your stomach muscles, you can lower your legs or bring them closer to your body. It is important that you feel comfortable with the movement.
  4. After about a minute, lower your legs, rest for a few breaths, and repeat the exercise four more times.

Get fit after waking up with a relaxation exercise

To regain mobility and loosen up your hips and spine when you wake up, go back to lying on your back.

  1. Extend your arms to your sides and bend your legs at a 90° angle. If you don’t have enough room to the sides, you can bend your arms and put your hands under your head. Your head is in the middle and you are looking up at the ceiling.
  2. Now slowly lower your legs to the left towards the mattress while turning your head to the right.
  3. Touch the ground with your knees, and then bring your legs out to the right side. At the same time, the head turns to the left.
  4. As soon as you hit the ground, switch sides again. Repeat this movement about ten times for each side. Then you are in shape and you can start the day well.
  5. During the exercise, you can vary the tempo as needed. Test which rhythm you feel most comfortable with and which one promises the best relaxation for your joints.
