While a hard work ethic is a good thing, there’s no reason being cooped up in an office all day has to prevent you from taking proper care of your body. Here are ten great exercises you can do in the office – no sweat, no equipment – but maybe a few weird looks from your colleagues.
Lunges: Need to walk a memo over to someone’s office? Don’t walk there – lunge there! Make sure to take the longest step you can so your knee doesn’t come over your toes.
Wall Sits: You love to sit down, clearly. Why else would you be sitting 10 hours a day? Move that chair out from underneath and make sitting down a challenge! Go for a minute first and then try to better that!
Chair Squats: A great way to get in a few chair squats is instead of just sitting down in your chair, sit down, stand up, THEN sit down. Boom. Next time, stand up, sit down, stand up, sit down. Getting it?
