Day 23: Cobra stretch

Traditionally a yoga exercise done on the floor, this Cobra Stretch has been adapted for the office. The exercise is designed to improve the flexibility of the abdominal and psoas muscles as well as increase mobility in the low back.

Day 20: Waist stretches

If you do these stretches directly to the side without allowing your body to lean forward, you will feel a nice stretch in your side and waist.

Day 19: Invisible chair: Ab, back, and thigh toner

According to author Shirley Archer in "Fitness 9 to 5", "Spending a few extra minutes each day in your invisible chair tones up your abs, back, and thighs. Building more muscle mass boosts your metabolism for more calorie burn even while you sleep!"

Day 17: Chair sit-ups

Today's exercise was sent to us from fitness expert Cindy Whitmarsh, an author, television personality, studio instructor, and nutrition and fitness consultant to athletes.

Day 7: Wall Posture

This simple exercise is designed to directly counteract the unhealthy neck and upper back posture found in people who work at desk jobs.

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!
