Exercise at work

28 Aug

I have blogged a lot about the dangers of too much sitting. Now, here is some advice from LifeHacker about how to exercise at work:

“If you have a little room at the office to swing a few things around or get on the floor a bit, you might consider bringing a few items with you to work that’ll help you make your breaks or idle thinking time even more productive. Even a pair of five-pound hand weights gives you the opportunity to do a number of exercises you wouldn’t otherwise be able to do. We’ve even shown you how to get a great workout in less than 20 minutes using nothing but a towel. You don’t have to go that extent, but a few hand weights, some elastic exercise bands, and you have the makings of some light strength training (or at least some mild physical therapy) at your cubicle or office desk.”

But read the whole piece.

    One of my colleagues just installed a “standing desk” in his office down the hall. I may follow suit. In the meantime, I will try this out.

      Let me know if you like the standing desk.
