Haven’t got enough time for exercise? Have your workout right at the office

  1. 1. Haven’t got enough time for exercise? Have your workout right at the office
  2. 2. 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— exercise.
  3. 3. 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?
  4. 4. HERE ARE SOME SIMPLE ROUTINES TO MINIMISE THOSE ACHES AND PAINS COMMONLY ASSOCIATED WITH LIMITED MOVEMENT AND TOO MUCH SITTING AND TYPING:
  5. 5. Leg stretches  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.
  6. 6. Leg extensions 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.
  7. 7. Hip flexions 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 foot. If you want this routine to be a bit more challenging use ankle weights as you do it.
  8. 8. Push ups 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 support. Lift your chest off the floor using your hands and keep your elbows to your sides.
  9. 9. 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.
