Day 49: Laptop Bag Bend

Share this content

Today's exercise requires the use of a weight that you can hold in both your hands. A briefcase or laptop bag (not empty, however!) will work perfectly, as will a pair of dumbbells or anything else you can find around the office that's got a bit of substance to it. This exercise will work on toning your hamstrings.

Step 1: Stand up straight and hold your weight in both hands in front of you.

Step 2: Squeeze your posterior muscles.

Step 3: Bend forward at the hips.

Step 4: Keeping your back straight, lower the weight to the floor in one fluid movement.

Step 5: Again, in a single fluid movement, lift the weight back up to the starting position.

Step 6: Repeat 10 times.
