Day 45: Thigh exercises

Today's exercises work the thighs, those parts of the legs that you sit on, all day long. You can actually do these exercises and keep working at the same time. Multitasking at its best!
 
Knee squeeze
 
Step 1: Sit up straight in your chair, with your feet shoulder-width apart.
Step 2: Place a water bottle, handbag, sweater, book, or some other object you've got hanging around the office, between your knees.
Step 3: Tighten your abdominal muscles.
Step 4: Squeeze the bottle or other object with your thighs.
Step 5: Release the squeeze (although not so much that you drop the bottle).
Step 6: Repeat 16 times.
 
Leg lift
 
Step 1: Sit up straight in your chair, with your feet on the floor.
