The 5 Minute Office Workout

By | Nov 2nd, 2016

Sitting is death! Or something like that. In any case, there’s no way that all that sitting is doing you any good, office workers.

So get your body moving! If you’re lucky enough to have an office with a gym attached, then make use of it, but if you don’t here are some great ideas. Of course, you might be a bit embarrassed to do jumping jacks in an open plan office, but maybe there’s an empty conference room you can duck into to sit in an invisible chair or do desk-ups. The sitting-in-a-real-chair exercises are easier to get away with in an open office. It also might be awkward to do stairsteps as your coworkers and whoever else is in your building pass you buy, but maybe you can find an empty fire escape stairwell with a single flickering fluorescent tube to jog awkwardly in your heels in. Seriously, if you’re going to work out at work, at least bring a pair of flats.

If you’re still feeling unsatisfied and you’ve got some space and privacy try this excellent 20 Minute Full Body Yoga Workout.
