Look, I understand when it comes to exercises, they simply can be something you just don’t want to do. There are lots of reasons for not wanting to do them from not having time or that you just find them boring or you hate going to a gym and working out with a lot of other people around you. I totally get it and know where you’re coming from. I used to feel the exact same way. However, if you want to be fit and healthy, you do need to add some sort of exercise program in your life.

Pause for a few seconds and then return to your starting position and repeat with your other leg but this time touch your left knee to the inside of your right arm. This would complete one rep.
