Top 4 Workout Routines For Your Workplace
Work can spill into workout hour. I understand. So here are the top 4 workout routines for your workplace. You can't expect to lose weight using just these 4 workout routines. To lose weight safely, you need to incorporate a healthy diet plan as well as complete workout routines into your lifestyle. However, for now, you can get started with these 4 workout routines for your workplace:
1. Take The Stairs.
Don't use the elevator at work, take the stairs instead. Keep in mind I'm saying this by assuming your office is in the second or third floor. If your office is beyond the fourth floor, then by all means, save your effort, and breath, and take the elevator.
In case your workplace is not in a building, then try to park a little bit away from your usual parking spot. This way you'll walk more. But always park in well-lit areas of the parking lot. You don't want to risk your security, do you?
2. Stand Up.
Every hour or so, stand up at your desk to stretch your body, even if you don't get out of your cubicle, or room, to go anywhere in the office.
If it's safe, then lift your arms and arch your back. Hold for at least 20 seconds while breathing normally. This will energize your spine, helping in digestion, blood circulation, and so on.
If you can't stand up and stretch at your desk, look below for alternate options for working out at your workplace.
3. Brisk Walk In Your Lunch Break.
Lunch breaks usually range from half-hour to one-hour. Even if you're hard at work, you should always break away from your busy schedule to have your lunch on time. Assuming you are definitely having your lunch at your lunch break, try to include a brisk walk in your lunch break as well.
For this, you have to pack a light, yet filling, lunch. Have your lunch within 10-15 minutes, and use the rest of your lunch break to brisk walk around your office, office building, or just back and forth from your car to your desk. If you're new to working out, have the brisk walk first, and then have your lunch to ensure your lunch stays inside you.
4. Workout At Your Desk.
While seated at your desk, lift your knees and stamp lightly on the ground for at least 20 times for both knees. Then stretch your legs by straightening your legs.
Flex and point your legs for 30 seconds each. Do this routine at least thrice a day at your workplace.
