Day 59: Wall Pushes

Today's exercise stretches your waist and is designed to be done right at your desk.
 
Step 1: Sit up straight in your chair.
 
Step 2: Raise your left arm parallel with the floor, and bend your wrist so your palm is facing away from you, as if you're telling someone to stop.
 
Step 3: Move your left arm across the front of your body to the right side and stretch as if you're pushing against the wall on your right. Hold for a count of 5.
 
Step 4: Return your arm to the front of your body.
 
Repeat 10 times, then switch arms for another 10 repetitions with the right arm.
