6 TREAT YOUR DESK AS A MINI-GYM

Prevention (Australia) - - Fitness -

Sit­ting for work is no ex­cuse for skimp­ing on in­ci­den­tal ac­tiv­ity. And you don’t even have to leave your chair! Bridges sug­gests you push back from your desk and re­peat the fol­low­ing 10 times:

• Lift up one bent knee then the other

• Lift one straight leg out in front of you then the other

• Lift up both legs to­gether in front of you and lower

• Pull in your ab mus­cles for a count of 10

• Fac­ing your desk, hold onto the edge and ro­tate from side to side. “This sim­ple move is great for ton­ing your waist and thighs,” Bridges ex­plains.
