An eight-hour workday is a real stress for our body, and in order to somehow help it, it is necessary to do office workout. All you need is 5-10 minutes, your workplace and a little willpower.
Are your hands numb? Then this exercise will definitely help relieve tension and tone your muscles. To do this, fix the chair against the wall (for your own safety) and place your hands on the edge of the chair shoulder-width apart. Fingers look forward, back straight, lower the pelvis, while bending the arms. Perform the exercise 10-15 times and you will feel a surge of energy. Do not forget to breathe: inhale when lowering, exhale when amplified – everything is simple.
If you do not like your chair with wheels, then it’s time to use it “as intended.” Lock in a chair, bend your legs under you and holding the edge of the chair, turn the body to the right, then to the left, while keeping the press in tension. So you not only crush your back, but also pump up your stomach. With a regular chair, we recommend the following exercise: place one hand on the back of the chair, and with the other hand help push off, gently turning the body towards the first hand. Do several repetitions in each direction, taking deep breaths and exhaling for best results. Your back will definitely thank you.
You will not need a chair in this exercise because you will become one. All you need to do is lean against the wall and take a squat position, pressing your shoulders and buttocks tightly and placing your knees at a 90 degree angle. This exercise will not only help you improve posture, but also perfectly relieve stress and fatigue.
How nice to stretch in the morning after waking up in your bed. Did you know how useful it is? Imitation pull-ups are a great stretch for those who are stuck in the workplace. Just lock your palms and reach up, exhaling fatigue and negative thoughts. Similarly, extend your arms in front of you and lower your head, taking three deep breaths and exhaling. I’m sure you already feel a surge of vigor and energy.
It would seem that the usual squats, and how many benefits – strengthen muscles, improve blood circulation, develop resilience and more. But the correctness of this exercise is important: the legs should be shoulder-width apart, and the center of gravity on the heels. Imagine sitting on an invisible chair. Did it work? Then forward to execution.
