Day 4: Business Flight - Targeting the needs of desk workers

Staying in shape while working long hours is a daunting task. We're here to help! Today's exercise comes from the blog, Healty News, a great source of tips, exercises, fitness news, and nutritional information.

This two-minute office exercise targets the areas that are typically compromised while working at a desk: the hamstrings and the mid-back regions.


 

  1. Stand as tall as possible. Pull your head and shoulders back and down to create a perfect posture position.
  2. Using the arms of your chair for balance, bend over while standing on one leg and extend the other leg so that it and your torso are parallel to the floor.
  3. Hold for three seconds.
  4. Return to the starting position.
  5. Repeat for one minute.
  6. Switch to the other leg and repeat for one minute.
