No I don't mean that! Dirty minds!
Here are three ways in which you can use your bed for abdominal muscle work. This works for beds that have a low frame.
1. Lie down on the floor at the foot of your bed with your head by the bed. Use your abdominal muscles to keep the small of your back on the floor. Do four sets of ten leg repetitions. Inhale when you lift your legs and exhale when you lower your legs.
2. Turn to one side. Use your arms above you to hold onto the bed frame. You may have to cross your wrists. With one leg straight on top of the other leg, lift both legs as much as you can. Do four sets of ten leg repetitions. Inhale when you lift your legs and exhale when you lower your legs.
Repeat on your other side.
3. Turn back on your back and again keep the small of your back flat on the floor. Hold onto the bed frame. Keep your legs slightly straight. Lift your hips three inches from the floor or more inches if you can while keeping your lower back on the floor. Do four sets of ten leg repetitions
