Keep moving with this workout to do at work! Try these “deskercises” to stay moving and combat the negative effects of sitting. Brought to you by Back On Track Fitness!
A typical adult sits in a desk chair at work for at least six-seven hours a day. Add to that a sitting-down commute both ways. When you get home, chances are you would relax, de-stress and slouch in front of the television for a good couple of hours. Think about it- a regular office worker spends almost half of the day sitting down, and according to studies, it can increase your chances of dying prematurely.
Do you have more excuses than exercise, because of work? No time, limited space, etc? Good news! As our life gets busier each day, many fitness experts have been developing small exercises you can do at work, in your office and under the desk. These “Deskercises,” as they call it, don’t promise six-pack abs or slimmer arms in no time, but will definitely improve your strength and burn a few unwanted calories. These moves were recommended by experts whose jobs involve studying motion, preventing obesity and generally getting people off their duffs.
