Summer vacation is knocking at the door and most of us are looking for a way to get a little extra toning up done before heading to the beach or the pool. One way to get that extra boost is to look into our personal training in Camden County, but there are also a few things you can do at work to aid yourself in achieving your fitness goals. Call it fitness cramming or deskercise, just because you’re working doesn’t mean your body has to rest.
Here are five exercises you can do at work.
- Desk Push-ups- Standing in front of your desk, press your palms down against it and back your feet out until you’re standing at a 45-degree angle. Perform a regular push-up for ten-to-fifteen reps. For an added challenge place your hands close together for a diamond desk push-up.
- Seated Salsa- Push your chair out from your desk and move your hips and arms to an eight-count like dancing salsa without the footwork. Try using your hips to move your chair back and forth across the floor in as wide a pattern as you can go.
- Wall Sits- With your back against a wall slowly lower yourself down until your knees are at roughly 90-degrees. Hold the pose for sixty-seconds and then raise yourself back up. If that seems too easy, cross one ankle over the other knee to engage one leg at a time.
- Calf Raises- The classic standing exercise, place your feet shoulder-length apart and stand on your toes, raising your heels and flexing your calves. Challenge yourself or your coworkers to see many you can do. Turn up the intensity by holding a heavy book or laptop out in front of you with arms fully extended.
- The Chair Squat- With your chair pushed out behind you. Perform a squat with your arms stretched out in front of you. Instead of fully lowering yourself into the chair, raise yourself back up as soon as you touch the chair. Try for at least ten reps.
It’s important to remember that a quick in-office workout isn’t a replacement for a visit to our gyms near Moorestown, it can, however, serve as an accompaniment to a fitness regimen.
