The Slog, Then Jog
Instead of slogging away for hours nonstop, take a mini break for a stationary jog. Pop up from your chair and jog in place. Want to add a little more? Pick up those knees! Continue for one minute, return to spreadsheets, and repeat.
The Lunch Break Hammy
Strengthen the hamstrings with this standing leg curl. Stand behind your chair and hold onto it for support. Gently kick one foot back, aiming the heel for the top of your thigh. Lower the foot back down and repeat exercise with the other leg. Do 10 reps, take a bite of your lunch, and then do 10 more.
