Are You Tired of Sitting at Your Desk all Day Long?
If so, here are four exercises that you can do at your desk or during a work break.
These exercises are perfect for those with sedentary jobs who want to stay active and healthy.
𝟏. 𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐤 𝐏𝐮𝐬𝐡-𝐔𝐩𝐬:
Place your hands on the edge of your desk, shoulder-width apart, and walk your feet back until your body forms a diagonal line. Lower your chest towards the desk, then push back up. Repeat for 10-15 reps.
𝟐. 𝐒𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐝 𝐋𝐞𝐠 𝐑𝐚𝐢𝐬𝐞𝐬:
Sit up straight with your feet flat on the ground. Lift one leg up until it's parallel to the floor, then lower it back down. Alternate legs for 10-15 reps on each side.
𝟑. 𝐃𝐞𝐬𝐤 𝐃𝐢𝐩𝐬:
Sit on the edge of your desk with your hands next to your hips, fingers pointing towards your body. Walk your feet out until your hips are off the desk, then lower yourself down until your arms form a 90-degree angle. Push back up and repeat for 10-15 reps.
𝟒. 𝗪𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐒𝐢𝐭𝐬: Stand with your back against a wall and lower your body until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Hold this position for 30-60 seconds, then stand up and repeat for 2-3 sets. (If you work from home, you can do them with your dog )
These exercises are quick, easy, and can be done almost anywhere.
Try incorporating them into your workday and see how much better you feel!
PS Happy International Women's Day to all you badass mamas, sisters, aunts, daughters, and grandmas out there!
