Workout Anywhere

Five moves you can do at anywhere, even at work

Tricep Dips

Strengthen your triceps with this move that can be done anywhere there is an elevated surface.

Turn so your back is towards your desk with both palms flat on the top. Step forward and lower your body until your knees are at right angles. Bend your elbows straight back and lower yourself straight down several inches, and then straighten your arms without locking your elbows. Complete 20 dips.

 

Wall Sits With Heel Jogs

Wall sitting builds your isometric strength and endurance in glutes, calves and quadriceps.
Slide back down into your wall sit position, and maintain it as you lift one heel, then the other. Alternate for 30 seconds, then release.

 

Lunge with Foot Tap

Doing lunges increases core strength, improves hip flexibility and whips your lower body into shape.

Step one leg back into a lunge. With your weight on your front leg, tap the back leg in next to the front foot, and then back out into a lunge 20 times. Repeat on the other side.

 

Seated Torso Crunch

This exercise will get your abs toned up in no time.

  Move to the edge of your chair and grasp the sides for balance. Slowly lift your knees toward the ceiling, so that your feet leave the floor. For an added challenge, hold every 5th rep for 15-30 seconds. Complete 20 reps.

 

Leg lift

This move tones your abs and thighs, increases back support, and increases flexibility.

Stand behind your chair and hold it for support. Engage your core by sucking in your stomach and straightening your spine. Slowly lift your left leg off of the ground. Maintain your balance on your right leg as you kick your left leg out in a lateral motion. The higher you can lift your leg, the more you will feel the burn. Do 20 reps on each side.
