This one’s so genius, Red Green will be envious he didn’t think it up himself. Turns out pillows are not only for sweet blissful sleep but can be used for a quick workout as well – no duct tape required. Here’s how you can use your feather-filled headrest for extra resistance when working your core.

We call it the Lumberjack

  1. Stand with your feet hip-width apart and knees slightly bent
  2. Bring the pillow over your left shoulder (arms straight)
  3. Cut the pillow across your body like you’re chopping a piece of wood
  4. Swing and repeat – Try doing this 10 times on each side 

Oh, and if you’re one of the lucky guys who ends up in a pillow fight, you can thank us for killing both your abs and getting in some cardio.
