Have your workout right at the office
Nowadays it seems we can’t get enough of time so we want to
squeeze every second of the day to do something productive.
If you find yourself in an office lull while waiting for something to
print or a colleague to reply to your e-mail, why not take those
extra minutes to do something your mind and body badly needs
and which you probably don’t get enough of just sitting all day—
With a little creativity and ignoring the occasional odd
look you’ll get, you can have yourself a nice “workplace
workout” with the help of office supplies and furniture.
Who knew the ergonomic chair, copier, desk and filing
cabinets could be handy workout companions?
HERE ARE SOME SIMPLE ROUTINES TO
MINIMISE THOSE ACHES AND PAINS
COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH LIMITED
MOVEMENT AND TOO MUCH SITTING AND
Standing with the feet close together, lift one leg to
your front, keeping it straight.
Lower it slowly to the original position then do the
same to the other leg.
Stretch the left leg to your side whilst keeping it straight
as you bend the right knee. Repeat on the opposite leg.
It would help if you hold on to a copy machine or filing
cabinet for balance as you do this.
Swing one leg forward and back whilst keeping the
other straight on the ground. Swing the same leg
backward and back to the original position this time.
Repeat on the opposite leg.
Sitting in your ergonomic office chair, sit straight and tuck
in your abs, then slowly lift one leg horizontally at a 90
degree angle from the floor. Repeat with the other leg.
Whilst sitting on the chair, maintain the proper posture by
keeping a straight back and bending the knees so the feet
are flat on the floor.
In this position raise one foot off the ground about two
inches then hold for five seconds. Repeat on the other
If you want this routine to be a bit more challenging use
ankle weights as you do it.
You can do it the traditional way by getting your toes on the
ground and your arms to lift your chest but it’s a bit difficult
especially if you’re not used to it.
Have your desk help you by absorbing some of your weight.
Position your body diagonal to the floor, keeping your legs
straight and hands holding on to the edge of the desk for
Lift your chest off the floor using your hands and keep your
elbows to your sides.
There now, that wasn’t too difficult, was it?
Careful who’s watching though, as you never know what
kind of impression you’ll give when your colleagues see
you doing this.
