6 DESK EXERCISES
you can do at work
Here are 6 desk exercises you can do at work (most won't be obvious during that 2-hour conference call!)
Desk job all day? No problem!
1. Chair Press Ups
Grab your chair arms (or the seat) and push up to lift your booty - working your arms and shoulders.
2. Scapular Retractions
This is great for your posture! Sit up tall and squeeze your shoulder blades together. Hold 2 seconds, then release.
3. Stomach Vacuum
Inhale slowly, then exhale while drawing your belly button to your spine. Hold 10-20 seconds.
4. Leaning March
Sit tall on the edge of your chair, then lean slightly back to engage your core. Lift and lower one knee at a time.
5. Footsie Slide
On the edge of your seat with feet together, slowly drag your feet on the floor toward your chair. Your hamstrings should burn!
(I made that name up)
6. Quad Squeeze & Extend
Squeeze your thighs together tightly, then straighten and bend your legs. Do all reps on one leg, then switch.
Get up to move or stretch every hour!
Try each exercise for 10-20 reps on each side of your body.
