My kiddos always hated tummy time. What I usually ended up doing was laying on my back and putting them on my tummy. They got the same workout and I got to have some bonding time with baby.

My son hated it also. I started out slow and would add a few minutes everyday or so and I had to lay on the floor in front of him and play. Also I got a toy car that would wind up and go on it's own, as long as I kept it going back and forth in front of him he'd be ok. It's an important part of development so just stick with it and the more he squirms the more he learns that he's moving. Once he notices he's moving he'll start to love it.
