3/31/14 DESKERCISE CHALLENGE – MORE SQUATS PLEASE

Ok, it’s now no secret to some of you just how much I hate squats….   SO….  going to make them part of today’s deskercise routine:

The challenge is:  50 squats, raise your arms above your head when coming to standing and incorporate a calf raise — lower arms and go back into a squat.   50 now and another 50 at 4:00.

GOOD LUCK & HAVE FUN!   =)

Fit Doesn’t = Healthy

I’ve had a busy few days so my apologies for being quiet the past few days….

I just came across this article “How You Can Be Fit But Not Healthy” and thought that I would share it with everyone as I feel that it is SO important!

We should always be mindful of what we consume — no matter how many times we may have been to the gym or out for a run…

Happy Friday All & Have an AMAZING weekend ahead!  =)

 

3/25/14 Deskercise Challenge – Chair Lifts

Yesterday’s exercise focused on arms — today’s exercise will focus more on your core and abs.

Sit down nice and tall in your chair — make it a sturdy one without wheels, if possible. Push your shoulders back as if you are trying to appear as “professional” as possible. Move to your chair’s edge and place your hands on the sides of the chair or on the armrests.

You are now in position. While keeping your back straight, lift your knees. Bring them up to your chest and then back down. You can let your legs go all the way to the floor during the exercise, or not allow them to touch the ground between reps to make it even more challenging.
