Just because a person is stuck at their desk for most of the day does not mean they cannot get in shape. There are some great exercises to do while sitting at a desk. Now a person can get their work done and get a workout at the same time.
Use the Toes
Tapping the toes under the desk at a fast speed is a good workout. This will help burn off calories and keep the blood flowing to all parts of the body. A person can do one foot at a time and alternate feet.
After a long period of sitting at a desk a person should get up and stand behind the desk for a couple of minutes. Long periods of sitting can put a person at an increased risk for diabetes and obesity. Standing may not be a workout but it will help keep the blood flowing to the legs.
Sit and Squeeze
This exercise can help work out the gluteus. All a person has to do is squeeze the buttocks and hold it in position for 10 seconds. They are then allowed to release. This is done until a person has completed this current assignment or the buttocks gets tired. Doing this for a couple of weeks will help raise the backside.
While sitting at a desk straight out a leg and hold it in place for 5 seconds. Lower the leg until it reaches the floor. Do 15 sets with each leg.
These are some of the workouts that can be done behind the desk. This will help a person get into shape while they are working.
