Back pain, lousy circulation, headache, tingling in your legs and hands sounds too familiar to you? You are aware of the effect of sitting in front of a computer for eight hours, each day. Do you know that there are a few tricks against these problems that you can apply right in the office and are very simple? Let your work area serve as a place for recreation. Take the opportunity to stretch your muscles and get extra energy. These are exercises that can help you to dedicate your work to your health.
We usually return from the work tired and hungry, so we can not get to work as soon as we can, but first, we can rest and eat, and exercise later in the evening is not recommended. You do not have to worry about exercising after work because you can practice in the workplace.
Office Workout Everyone Should Try
Stretching below the table. While sitting in the office, do your leg stretching. Raise the lower part of the leg from the floor until you spread your legs in your knee and until you feel muscle contraction. Repeat as many times as you can.
Lifting On Toes. If you are waiting for the photocopy, don’t just stand, but climb to your toes. If no one watches, do 30 reps – lift your heels and stand on your toes, then lower it so 30 times. If someone is watching you, lift up your fingers and stay as long as you can.
Crunches. While typing on a computer, straighten your back and lift your knees in the air, hold them for a few seconds, then lower them and repeat as many times as you can.
Turning in Chair. For this, you need a chair that can transform and an empty office. Start with the abovementioned abdomen and after you have finished, swing with your feet. Repeat as many times as you can. This exercise is fun.
Get Upstairs, Instead of going to the toilet on the same floor, climb up or go down the stairs. If you go several times during the day in the toilet steps, you will burn up to 100 calories.
Pushings. Put your hands on your feet and fold them up as for prayer, and then push them – right left and left right. So you practice triceps, biceps and chest muscles.
Table as weight. Put your hands beneath the table, place your palms on it from the bottom and push it up. Or put your palm down and push down.
Gluteus Muscles. While sitting in a chair, tighten the muscles of the gluteus. Keep them tight for a long time, then relax abruptly. If someone is sitting nearby, keep your muscles tightened longer.
Active on Breaks. Take a walk on a lunch break instead of sitting and in the last half an hour you can take a meal.
