DESKERCISES

By Purva Narang

Fitness and Rehab Trainer


Exercise is not limited to running on a treadmill or lifting weights at a gym. Quick workouts anywhere will still reap the benefits of an active lifestyle.

Here are 3 exercises to complement your work routine.

1) Calf raises

Stand up straight and use your desk/chair for support. Raise your heels off the floor until you are standing on your toes. Slowly lower yourself back to the floor. Aim for three sets of 10 raises .

2) Chair Squats

Try to bust these out between meetings or calls. All you have to do is stand up from your chair, lower your body back down, stopping right before you sit back down. (Keep your weight in your heels to work those glutes). Then stand back up again.

Do 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps

3) Desk Push-Ups

First things first: Make sure your desk is sturdy enough to support your bodyweight. Then, take a few steps back, so you can place your hands flat on your desk, a little wider than shoulder-width. Lower yourself down toward your desk, keeping your core tight. Then push back up until arms are straight. Do 3 sets of 10 to 15 reps.

Happy Deskercising!
