Deskercise

Deskercise

Being desk-bound 10 hours a day is a common excuse for skipping a workout. Not anymore! Get your body moving with these healthy and discrete moves you can do with only your desk!

Desk Pushup

Place hands on edge of desk, shoulder width apart, legs out behind you. Push off with as much force as you can.

Chair Dips

With your legs out in front of you, grab the edge of a chair (or desk) and lift yourself down and back up. At the end, you’ll be conveniently back in your seat.

Chair Squat

Set your chair to the lowest height possible. Stand up and lower yourself until you gently touch the seat and stand back slowly up to complete the movement.

Wall Sit

With your back leaning on a wall, assume a sitting position and hold it for a count of 15 secs or more.

Sit Hold

Tone your quads and strengthen your core while in meetings. Sit straight on your chair and straighten your legs at a 90 degree angle. Hold them steady for a count of 15-30. Increase the resistance by doing one leg at a time and resting the other on top of your extended leg.

Pacing

Yes! Pacing around the office is a great way to rack up steps, burning some extra calories while making you look very efficient.
