Workout At Work

Workout is that necessity of this era which is still being considered as an “Add on activity”, which can be skipped guilt free till we believe we are fit. Ironically our definition of “fitness” is swiped by “just being able to maintain our routine work”.
We are so packed with our working hours that we don’t find time to go to gym and work on our fitness and the sedentary lifestyle of most workplaces is turning out to be a serious health issue.
I believe working out at work can be the real saviour as you won’t be needing extra hour for gym and moreover working out at work won’t just keep you fit, it will enhance your productivity too at work.
Some basic and important exercise which you go for at office :
You can always go for regular push-up at your office but if you don’t find that extra place to work this out you can try “Desk Push-up”. While standing, position yourself a few feet from your desk, keep your feet together then put your palms on the edge of your desk, about a shoulder width away from each other. Lower down to the edge of the desk, and push back to the starting position.
- Seated Leg Raises
Sit on your office chair with a good posture, back straight, chest out and shoulder down. Straighten your one leg at a time and hold in place for five or more seconds. Then lower the leg back to the ground without letting the feet touch the floor. Repeat this procedure with the other leg with 15 repetitions altogether.
Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor, with both elbows on the thighs, try to curl the chest in towards the legs while resisting the movement with the arms. Hold for 10 seconds, release, and repeat times 10.
You have to be on the floor on your hands and knees. Lower your forearms to the floor with elbows positioned under your shoulders and your hands shoulder-width apart. Step your feet back, one at a time. Maintain a straight line from heels through the top of your head, looking down at the floor, with gaze slightly in front of your face. Now, tighten your abs and hold.
- Chair dip
Stand in front of the chair, keeping your face away from chair’s seat. Sit down on the edge of your seat and place your hand behind your hips. Lift your hips off the seat and walk your feet forward and slowly lower your body downward.
Working on these simple exercises during your office hours will definitely be a blessing in disguise for your overall development. So from now let’s not just wish for a healthy life, “Lets work for it”.
