Day 34: Office aerobics

The WebMD Web site suggests that just because you’re stuck in an office, that doesn’t mean you can’t get up from your desk and get your heart beating. Here are five minutes’ worth of quick and easy ideas for little aerobics exercises you can work into your daily late-afternoon pick-me-up. (If you’re wearing high heels, you’ll probably want to slip them off before you start jumping and running in your office!).
 
Step 1: Time yourself for one minute, get up from your desk, and do jumping jacks.
Step 2: Run in place for one minute.
Step 3: Jump rope, without the rope, for one minute. Just pretend you’ve got a rope in your hands, and jump while rotating your arms.
Step 4: Sit at your desk, and pump your arms up and down for 30 seconds, then rapidly tap your feet on the floor for another 30 seconds.
Step 5: Do walk-lunges around your office for 1 minute.
