Fitness Friday: Cubicle Exercises
Posted by Physician's Preference on 10/7/2011 to Health & Fitness

Your inbox is full. The phone is ringing off the hook. You have five meetings to attend and a big project due.

Your work day is jammed packed but there's no excuse  to skimp out on your exercise. Even if it's only for a short period of time...something is always better than nothing!


There are so many different exercises that can be done at the office and we're here to share them with you all! (We even found a few staff members from Physician's Preference and Hotze Health & Wellness Center to demonstrate each one!)
 
Lower Body Lifts
 
These can easily be done by sitting up straight in your chair, extending one leg forward and holding it up off the chair for 10 seconds. Switch legs and do the same thing with your opposite leg. Makes your leg tremble a little, right? Alternate legs and repeat this exercise 6 times per leg to sculpt those lower abs.

Dips
 
While sitting on your office chair, put your hands under your butt and scoot off the seat. Put your hands at the edge of the chair, bend your arms at a 45 degree angle and dip down. Come back up by straightening your arms. Repeat 20 times. *Note: If you have a chair on wheels, makes sure you push it up against a wall.

Wall Sits
 
Leaning against the wall, bend your knees at a 45 degree angle, as if you were sitting in a chair. Push up against the wall and make sure you keep your legs and knees together. Hold for 30 seconds and then stand up. Repeat 5 times. Doesn't that just take you back to good ol' junior high P.E. class?

Rhonda - Pharmacist

 
Get a new chair!
 
Ditch that lousy desk chair and get yourself a stability ball! Sitting on a stability ball at your desk allows you to work your core all day long! Your abs are used for balance and strength, your back is completely straight allowing for perfect posture and the muscles in your upper body are used for stability and coordination. Like they say, “Don’t knock it ‘til you try it!”
