Day 64: Shoulder lifts, rolls, swings

Shoulder exercises are designed to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders. They're great for warming up before a round of golf or before getting ready to do more strenuous exercises. They're also excellent as a little get-away-from-work relief.

Day 61: Chair Yoga - Remembering to breathe!

There is nothing better than integrating Yoga into your daily routine to center and refocus you during your workday. Throughout the day you may start building tension in your back and neck, maybe due to stress or because you are working at a computer doing repetitive motion in a stationary position for long periods of time.

Day 30: Magic Carpet Ride and Wooden Leg

Today we are poking around the Web for some quick exercises to add to our library. MSNBC.com published an article today on exercises you can do at your desk, and here are two suggestions.

Day 28: Overhead press

The overhead press is used to improve strength in triceps and shoulders. This exercise works best when done with weights. If you have never done this exercise before, your arms may feel fairly wobbly and uncoordinated. This is normal and will go away if you continue doing this exercise for a couple of weeks.

Day 24: Windshield wipers - arm stretch

Today's exercise strengthens your arms and also can be used as part of a warm-up routine for other exercises. You can do this exercise while sitting upright in your desk chair.

Day 22: Chair triceps dips

Today's office fitness exercise is designed to strengthen the triceps muscle in your upper arms. This exercise was contributed by fitness expert Cindy Whitmarsh, an author, television personality, studio instructor, and nutrition and fitness consultant to athletes.

Day 15: Tricep stretches

Today's exercise comes from the National Institutes of Health. You can use this exercise to strengthen the muscles in the back of the upper arm. You can do this exercise while sitting at your desk or you can stand up.

Day 5: Shoulder and Arms Stretches

Standing up to stretch can improve circulation (especially in your feet and legs) and relieve the neck and back stiffness that comes from prolonged sitting. It's important to get up regularly throughout the day!
