Author and fitness expert Cindy Whitmarsh has a new desk exercise for us today. You might want to consider doing this in a chair without wheels, or back your wheely chair up against your desk or a wall so it won't slide out from under you. In any case, I think you'll agree that this exercise is a bit more exerting than some of the others we've tried. It's Monday – time to get serious about stretching.

Chair single-leg squats
This quick exercise challenges your quadriceps, the gluteal muscles, and works on your balance.
  1. Sit in chair.
  2. Keeping your back straight, lift your right leg so it is slightly off the floor.
  3. Put your hands straight out in front of you.
  4. Inhale deeply, then exhale.
  5. Stand, keeping your leg off the floor and squeezing your buttocks (gluteal) muscles.
  6. Return to sitting position.
  7. Repeat 10 times, lifting and lowering your body at the same speed.
  8. Switch legs.
