It's time to get up and get fit! Here's a quick afternoon refresher that targets your abs, your butt, and your inner thighs.
Step 1: Stand up straight, away from your desk. Feet should be wider than shoulder-width apart. Point your toes outward slightly.
Step 2: Bend your arms at the elbows, make fists with your hands, and place your hands in front of you.
Step 3: Lean forward for balance as you bend at the knees as if you are about to sit down.
Step 4: Stand up on your left leg and swing your extended right leg diagonally across the front of your body to the left, lifting your leg as high as you can.
Step 5. Return to standing on both feet.
Repeat the exercise 20 times, then switch legs and repeat another 20 times.
Tip: Don't rush this exercise. The more slowly you do it, the better results you'll get!
