Quick Office Workout

For most working moms like me, we hardly get time to do some workout at home or outside the office and because of that we are getting bigger and fatter as time goes by.

I’m glad i found this article entitled “The 25-Minute Office Workout” while surfing the net.

With this program, i don’t even have to change my clothes or shower. Here are ways to drop 5 pounds with quick office workout.

Walking and Climbing Stairs (for 20 minutes)
Start by changing into comfortable shoes that provide arch support. Then get up and walk the halls at work at a moderate pace for 15 consecutive minutes a day, and you’ll burn about 60 calories. To stretch, build strength, and get some aerobic activity, add stair walking for five minutes.

Windmill Stretch (for one minute)
Stand with your feet 12 inches apart and your arms stretched straight out to your sides. Then bend at the waist and touch your right hand to your left foot. Return to original position, and touch your left hand to your right foot, then return to original position again. Continue stretching gently — if you can’t reach your foot, reach as far as you can without discomfort.

Wall Push-Ups (for two minutes)
Stand facing a wall with your feet shoulder-width apart and your toes about two feet from the wall. Place your palms flat against the wall with your hands shoulder-width apart and at shoulder height. Keeping your feet stationary and your back straight, bend at the elbows, moving your body toward the wall. Count to three as you lower toward the wall, and three more as you push away from it. Repeat.

Stand with your back to a sturdy, stationary chair, your feet about shoulder-width apart, your heels about one foot in front of the chair, and your arms straight out in front of you, parallel to the floor. Lower your body to a seated position, count to three, and stand back up to the starting position. Repeat. Try to achieve a 90-degree angle with your legs when you move to the seated position. Once you become stronger, try not to sit at all during the exercise.
