A work out to tone up those arms - With your feet planted firmly on the ground, use your palms to grip the edge and top of the desk.
As you would with a normal push up, keep your back and your bottom flat and slowly bend your arms lowering yourself towards your desk. As your chin comes level with your elbows, push back up to your starting position – repeat 20 times.
To eradicate those bingo wings….. face away from the photocopier and hold onto the edge and top with your hands. Shuffle your feet out so your weight is on your hands and your body is leaning backwards towards the equipment. Dip your bottom to a half sitting position. Now bend your arms and push back up to
do a reverse push up – repeat
Great for legs and pert bums…Standing by your desk, plant your feet shoulder width apart and hold your arms out in front of you, at shoulder height. Keeping your back straight, bend your knees as far as you can maintaining the position. The aim is to reach a full squat on the ground. As you reach your maximum dip, pause for 2 seconds and push your weight back through your legs to standing position – repeat in batches of 10.
A little work out for your heart health - This is simple and can be anytime of the day. Every time you need print something off, send it to the printer furthest away in the office and speed walk as quick as you can to pick it up. Send pages one at a time, so you’ll have to keep going backward and forward –
you be amazed how much distance you rack up!
Tighten up those calves. Standing with your feet together, put one foot out in front of you. Retaining the weight on the main leg under you, bend that leg as far as you can and stretch out the one in front of you. Return to stand and repeat on the other side – repeat both sides 20 times
Yes we know this sounds rude but it’s an exercise great for thighs and core strength! Standing with your feet together, take as wide a step forward as you can with one leg. Hold that position and now bend the front leg as far as you can, bringing you towards the ground. Hold the lowest position you can for 2 seconds, then straight, returning to stand position. Repeat with the other leg.
Whittle away that waist without even leaving your desk!
With both feet even spread and firmly on the ground, fold your arms in front of you at shoulder height. Pulling in your tummy muscles and keeping your back straight, turn your knees to one side, twisting your body to the other. Turn your head to the same side as your knees. Stretch and return to position. Repeat on opposite side. Repeat 20 times each side. As you get better at this you can even put a stress ball between your knees and squeeze together at the point of full stretch for extra muscle work out!
