Working Out: Tip of the Day

16 Apr

Not everyone can afford the time to hit the gym. You get home from work and you’re usually tired and just want to plop into bed. So, we’re giving you some tips to try to squeeze some of your work out into your 9 to 5. 

  • Find a few sturdy, thick phonebooks and do some step aerobics.
  • Take two steps back from your desk and lean forward until you’re at an angled push-up position against the edge of your desk. Do a couple quick sets.
  • Lift 1-3 packs of printer paper in each hand. Curl them like weights or lift them over your head.
  • Jumping jacks. Simple, quick and pumps you up.
  • Squeeze a stress ball. Relieves stress while strengthening forearms and wrists for typing.
  • Forget the boardroom. Hold walking meetings.
  • Hand-deliver mail, memos and faxes.
  • Chat face-to-face instead of by e-mail or phone.
  • Use a bathroom on the other side of the building or another floor.
  • Have a lot of phone time? Buy a cordless and move around while talking.

Just a few suggestions to get you up and going without having to bust a move to the gym…
