We’re actually not talking about sex this time.

Everyone knows that “20 minutes at the gym” is rarely ever 20 minutes. First, you’ve got to get into your gym gear, move your butt to the gym, find parking, swipe in, put your stuff into your locker before you start working out. By the time you’ve freshened up, prepared your post-gym protein smoothie, and gone home, the entire thing could have easily taken more than an hour.

If you’ve been struggling to find the time to fit in a workout, no worries. Here are some workouts you can do without even getting up from your bed!

(No, not that kind of exercise.)

Imagine that: you don’t even have to change out of your PJ’s. And besides that, a bed’s unstable surface makes your muscles work harder for extra stability, so you also get more bang for your workout buck. Just go slow, and be careful!

1. Thighs and Abs Strength-Training

The key to this workout is a pillow! Squeezing it between your knees helps to engage your leg muscles for extra burn.  Joanna recommends pairing this with weighted training and cardio for maximum results. If you’re looking for more challenge, you can replace the pillow with a weighted medicine ball or sandbag.
