Workouts you can do at your desk.

Having a desk job can make it hard to get in a workout and stay in shape. Here are some effective ways you can burn calories at your desk or office.


Get up and walk. At least once an hour, get up and walk around the office. Take extra steps to the bathroom and break room. Always use the stairs and, if needed, stand at your desk while walking in place.

Sitting Yoga

Desk yoga is a great way to stretch your muscles and help boost you through the day. If you can’t do this while working, then do it before leaving for lunch or after lunch.

Desk Push Ups

Desk push-ups are a great way to build arm muscles and can be done quickly and effectively. Challenge yourself to do 100 of throughout the workday.

Desk Squats

Desk Squats are a great way to build leg muscles as well as tighten your calves and booty. You can even hold on to your desk for support.

Body Ball Workout

Using a body ball instead of a chair at your desk will help you get in some cardio while working. It is also great for your posture. If you need the balance of the body ball but the support of the chair, then splurge for the two in one combo.

Get creative with your office and desk and figure out what workouts you can do. Your body will thank you.
