Working out is one of those things that people either love or hate. If you fall into the former category, congrats on all the muscles—you can stop reading now; but if you’re in the latter group, then please read on so you too can learn how to get moderately fit with a minimum of effort. Below find five easy workouts that even the laziest among us can do each day, or several times at least.
This is an easy one: Just stand with your feet about hip-width apart, and then step forward, bending your left knee at 90 degrees with your right leg bent with the toes touching the ground. Then repeat with the other leg. Do a few sets of 10 to 20 of these. No big deal, right?
A good workout to do wherever there are chairs or benches.Here’s a good description of one, via FitWatch: All you need to do is sit on the edge of the seat with your hands positioned next to your thighs. Then lift shift your body so its positioned directly in front of the seat—at this point your knees should be flat, with your feet flat on the floor. Next, lower yourself until your elbows bend no more than 90 degrees and push yourself back up.

This very basic yoga move will help with flexibility and lower back pain. To do it, get on your hands and knees and bend your neck/head down while arching your back up. Then lift your head and neck while lowering your back, like in the video above.
The ultimate DIY exercise, squats are a wonderful workout even if you’re not at the gym. It’s great for your legs, your core, and your general well-being. Watch the video above for a detailed breakdown on how to do one.
A great lazy workout because you don’t have to go anywhere to do it and it only takes 30 seconds or so for a set. Despite being easy to do—even if you can only do a few—it’s a great workout that helps you build back, chest, arm, and core muscles.
