Sometimes we’re just pushed for time and can’t get to the gym. Buried in work, and it feels like we are chained to our desk every waking moment of the day.
Thankfully, with a little bit of creativity, you can get a small strength workout done, right there at your desk.
Here are the top 5 strengthening exercises you can do at your desk.
1 Chair Hover – Rather than sitting on your chair, hover an inch or two above it for 1 minute, while continuing to work. If you can hold this position, you will build a lot of strength in the legs and butt.
2 Dips – Place your hands on the edge of your desk or chair, walk the feet out in front of you and lower your butt down to the floor. Push back up through the arms. Dips will tone your shoulders and arms.
– You can do a plank anywhere. Simply use
your desk or drop to the floor and hold your body up on your elbows and feet.
The longer you hold it, the better core workout you will get.
Find some space. Simply use your desk or drop to the floor. Hands shoulder width apart. Slowly lower yourself. Return to start and repeat 10 times.
5 Lunges –
Take a step out shoulder width apart. Engage your core. Slowly lower your back knee. Return to start. Swap legs and do 10 on each side.
