Cubicle-friendly exercises you can do without your boss noticing!
Too busy to hit the gym after work? We've got easy exercises you can do at your cubicle (even in your favorite pencil skirt!) without breaking a sweat or having the IT guys gawking at your hot bod as you do backbends. Ladies, we introduce your new "deskercise" routine.
Whittle Your Waist
To slim your tummy, do side stretches. While sitting, hold your stomach in tight, raise your arms over your head and lean gently over to each side. (As far as you can go without toppling over in you chair and creating an uber-embarrassing feet-in-the-air, look-at-my-panties moment!) Do this a few times on each side several times during the day.
Get Buns of Steel
You can do this one while fielding calls or waiting for another slow file to download. While sitting, squeeze your butt cheeks together, then release and repeat. It's a good way to help prevent the "spreading of the derriere" syndrome that results from an "I sit at my desk all day" job.
Feel the Burn
This one is a modified squat -- made more office appropriate than your average gym variety. You don't want to get caught burning calories on the company dime! Periodically while you're sitting, lift your butt off the chair, hover over your seat and feel the burn for as long as you can take it. Stand up and repeat.
Work Those Arms
No need to bring the barbells to work. Just grab a full water bottle and get to work. For a front arm raise, sit in your chair with your abs tight and spine straight, holding the water bottle in your right hand, and raise to shoulder level and hold for two seconds. Do as many reps as you're comfortable with before switching sides. And for a bicep curl, start again with a tight stomach, straight spine and bottle in your right hand. Then just curl the bottle in toward your shoulder. Do your reps and repeat on the left side. You'll go from office blah to Baywatch bod in no time!
