We're taking it up a notch today by adding a new tool in your office fitness exercise kit. Mandi Clossey of Somerset CPAs in Indianapolis has a new fitness tip for us, and this one requires the use of a resistance band. I know you might not have one of these in your file cabinet, but, as usual, there are plenty of creative alternatives available. You can use a belt, or a scarf, bungee cord, or the shoulder strap from your purse or laptop bag. It's best if the band has a little bit of give in it.

Resistance Band Side Steps
Although the activity of this exercise is focused around your ankles, the side step exercise actually works on your abdominal muscles, buttocks, and thighs, as well as your leg muscles.
  1. Stand up straight.
  2. Place your feet about shoulder-width apart. Wrap the resistance band around both legs just above the ankles and make sure there is no slack.
  3. You will work one direction then do the reverse direction.  Starting to the right, left your right foot up and try to step with the right leg as far as you are able.
  4. Bring your left foot to the right so your feet are separated in their original position, with feet apart and no slack in the resistance band.
  5. Repeat for 6 steps to the right.
