Tone Up While at Work


I know better than anybody that sitting at a desk all day can take a toll on your body. You don't get much movement and you can get what I like to call "spread butt"

Here is how you can Tone at your Desk

1.Seated Scissors

Scoot forward in your chair and sit straight. Extend legs in front of you about shoulder-width apart. Point your toes and rotate legs out slightly. Keeping legs straight, cross left ankle over right, then right over left. Alternate legs quickly 40 times or do for as may as you can.

2.Supported Single-Leg Squat

Stand a foot or so in front of your chair with your hands on the desk. Rest top of left foot on the chair seated behind you and lower into a single leg squat, keeping right knee alignes over ankle. Stand up and repeat. Do 20 squats on each leg.

3. Standing Calf Raise

Grab a thick dictionary and stand with the balls of your feet on it (so heels are supported). Holding onto the wall, if necessary, rise up onto your toes, then lower your heels untill they're just and inch off the floor. Press back up and repeat; do 20 reps. For an added challenge do them one leg at a time.

Try and do these every day while sitting at your desk. You will get added energy and feel better. Plus, if you ever find yourself heading for that office birthday cake, do these before you do and your craving will subside.
