Odds are the majority of your week is spent at work so why not maximise your time there by trying some of these exercises.
Walking up the stairs
Instead of taking the lift try walking up the stairs instead, you could even take two steps at a time if you really wanted to push yourself.
If taking the stairs doesn’t quite feel like enough cardio try toe taps under your desk like footballers do for their pre-match warm up.
Sitting on an exercise ball
Whilst this may not be possible for everyone due to the kind of environment you work in, this change will have a great impact on your posture and works your core muscles too.
These are great if you’re stuck in the queue for lunch or waiting at the printer. Simply stand with feet hip width apart and go up on to your toes, pause and then go back down again, see how many you can do in the time you’re waiting.
Walk to work
If possible make the change of walking to work as this will not only increase your daily amount of exercise it will also help you keep a clear mind and help you relax. If you live too far to walk, why not try getting off the train or bus a stop earlier.
To stop yourself from becoming tense and stiff, stretch out all your muscles by working your way down from your neck to your toes.
If you want to be super discreet, squeeze and hold your abdominals or your glutes for 5 to 10 seconds, release and repeat in sets of 10 to 15.
