We've all had those mornings when the bed just feels too plush, warm, and inviting to leave it.

Yeung, CSCS, a fitness expert and the founder of GroomBuilder, shares the best fat-burning exercises to do in bed.

Planks

According to Yeung, planks are stellar at strengthening your core muscles. This exercise also aids in protecting your lower back. To perform it, assume a classic plank with your forearms and toes on the ground and your body forming a straight line. "Push your forearms into the ground to round your upper back, and curl your hips in to keep your lower back flat," Yeung says.

Hip Bridges

Get ready to target your hamstrings and glutes while building strength and torching calories from the comfort of your bed. To perform hip bridges, lie on your bed, bend your knees, and keep your feet flat. Push through your heels to press your hips up toward the ceiling, all while squeezing your glutes. Refrain from using your lower back muscles to press your body up.

Bird Dogs

"It's a strange name, but it's a great exercise to build core stability, teach coordination, and activate your glutes," Yeung explains. So gear up for some bird dogs!

To perform this next move in our fat-burning exercises to do in bed, get on all fours with your knees underneath your hips and your hands lined up under your shoulders. Your lower back should be flat. Extend one arm and the opposite leg at the same time (so bring your left arm forward and your right leg back, for example), then repeat the motion on the other side. "Think about kicking out your heel until you feel your glute turn on," Yeung says.

Pushups

Yeung dubs the pushup "one of the best total-body exercises to build strength and get lean." To perform it, assume a pushup (high plank position) by placing your hands about shoulder-width distance apart. Make sure your lower back stays flat and your hips don't sag. Lower your body toward the mattress. Your elbows should remain close to each side of your body as you lower down.

If you want to make this exercise a little bit easier, place both feet on the floor and your hands on the bed. To make pushups more challenging, place your feet on the bed and your hands on the floor.

Dead Bugs

Last but not least in our exercises to do in bed, we have the dead bug. The dead bug is such an awesome exercise to activate your abs, and you can do it in your PJs while lying down on your comfy sheets.

Start with your knees bent and raised and your arms in the air, "like a dead bug." Push your lower back into the bed throughout the exercise, and raise your glutes. Extend your right leg and your left arm simultaneously as you breathe out. Then, switch sides, and repeat.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That!

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
