Book Review: "Fitness 9 to 5" provides clever exercise options for the desk worker
"Of course you don't have time to go to the gym for an hour every day. Like most of us, you have to earn a living. Yet, as you sit at your desk, you feel your tushie spreading, your neck and shoulders aching. You know that you need to do something. But what can you do?" from Fitness 9 to 5, by Shirley Archer.
- Prework Workouts - exercises that can be done while you're still in bed, driving the car, riding the train, in the parking lot, climbing stairs to your office, and in your office before you sit down.
- Morning Starters - stand up, sit down, lift the coffee pot up and down, use the stairs, do standing pushups against the bathroom wall.
- Lunchtime Energizers - walking exercises, resistance band workouts.
- Afternoon Slump Survival - breathing exercises, in-your-chair crunches, under-the-desk leg stretches.
- Evening Stress Busters - desk chair exercises, muscle massages, exercises for the ride home
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
