Deskercise – The Office Workout!

Chances are you are reading this sitting in your office chair, inactive, hunched over a computer with terrible posture! I know I am writing this striking a similar pose!

Getting out during a working day for some sort of exercise is not always possible. The following workout is designed for the office. All you need is a chair and something, like a table, to lean on.

If you are too embarrassed to do it in an open plan office why not get a pal to join in to share the embarrassment or find a meeting room where you can do it. No excuses 🙂

What level are you?

Squats – Give me 20.

Keep your core engaged, back as straight as possible and clench your butt at the top.

Lunges – 20 reps.

Face forward, bend your knees to lunge and push back on your leading leg. Alternate for each leg.

Tricep Dips on your chair – Give me 10.

Make sure your chair is not on wheels and is sturdy!

Knee lifts – Do 10 reps.

Hold on to the chair. Lean back until your abs engage and then lift your knees up towards your chest.

Leg Lifts – 20 on each leg.

Sit straight, engage your abs and straighten your leg until parallel with your hips! Alternate each leg.

Desk pushups – 10 reps.

Form is everything! Keep a straight line from your head to your heels.
