Who said work is boring? It is if you let it become. You may not be getting enough time for yourself or maybe you are underpaid for that matter but you need to take the time at work and give yourself some help in managing your physical fitness levels. No, you do not have to get up and get running for all this. In fact, all you need to do is just sit back and relax and do some exercises that can be done while at a desk job and you will be taking some care of yourself. If you are thinking of compensating your gym session here, then no, you cannot really do that. Working out with the fitness equipment you purchased through Grand Slam Fitness is not going to be replaced by this but the max it will do is give you something to work on with regard to your physique while at work. So go ahead and try these exercises and you will see how it works out for you.
– Work those toes : Stay. Sit right where you are and start tapping those toes on the floor underneath. While you are at it, increase the pace and kick it up a few notches until you feel your glutes asking you to stop. Now that is a cardio session right there.
– Raise those legs: While being seated, raise your leg up and straighten it. Hold it in the air for a few seconds and then lower it towards the ground. Make sure you do not touch the ground. Hold it there for a few seconds more and then again raise the leg. You can then change to the other leg or even try it out on both the legs at once for that matter. Legs, check.
– Butt squeeze: An exercise that won’t ask you to lift or bend or anything of that sort. It is exactly what it sounds like. Sit and squeeze your butt together and once you are there, hold it for a few seconds and then let it go. You can do this till you tire your guts out.
– Water Dumbells: No, it is not as fun as playing with water balloons. Grab that water bottle of yours and start curling your arms as if you are playing with weights at the gym. You can do around 15 reps with each hand and then change. Mind you, not an empty water bottle. Yes, you can be smart enough. In fact, if you do not have one at disposal, grab anything heavy and do the same.
Wouldn’t it have crossed your mind right? Yes, it happens. We do so many things in our day to day life and handle so many things and that itself becomes a good amount of physical exercise for us. But, sometimes having a desk job can be a really hard one, especially if you are not the kind who can sit in one place and just be there. So try the above exercises and remember to stay fit.
