Whittle While You Work.

13 Oct

All you need is a chair to make these 5 exercises work. These moves can easily be done at your desk while you are working or at home while you are watching the kids or watching t.v. These exercises below, when combined, create a full body work out you don’t even have to leave your desk to do. This may seem ridiculous to some people but I dare you to try it, these thigh and butt exercises are no joke and everyone knows triceps dips are killer. Now it’s your turn to get fit on the clock 😉

Whittle While You Work.

1- Triceps Dips. With your back facing a chair, place your hands on the seat and extend your legs and turn them slightly out from your hips. Tilt your pelvis up and bend your elbows slightly. Tighten your abs and bend your elbows about 2 inches and then straighten back up. This is one rep. Do 3 sets of 20 reps.

2- Thigh Blaster. Stand facing the back of a chair, about an arm’s length away with your hands resting on the back of the chair and your arms shoulder width apart, your heels should be together and your toes pointed out so they form a V. Lift your heels about 3 inches and bend your knees over your feet, keeping your abs tight and your knees over your toes. Bend knees to your lower body, about 2 feet and lift back up. This is one rep. Do 3 sets of 20 reps.

3- Straight Armed Sit Ups. Lie facing a chair with your legs hip width apart, knees bent to 90 degree angle and your heels on the chair. Press your lower back into the floor. Keep your abs tight, shoulders down and elbows lifted, lift your shoulders off the floor. Reach your arms towards your feet and your curl your torso up and down 1 inch, pulsating. This is one rep. Do 3 sets of 20 reps.

4- Butt Buddy. Knee facing the back of a chair about half an arm’s length away. Place your hands on the chair, be sure your hips are above your knees and your legs are hip width apart. Tighten your abs and drop your tailbone. Push down on the chair and lift your left shin and foot, allowing your leg to turn out from the hip. Lift your thigh about 6 inches and lower. This is one rep. Do 3 sets of 20 reps on each leg.

5- All Over. Stand facing the back of a chair about an arm’s length away. Place your hands on the chair and be sure your chest is parallel to the floor. While pushing down bend your elbows to 90 degrees and raise your left leg back to hip level, rotating your foot and shin out bending your right knee slightly, keeping your abs tight the whole time. Lift your leg about 2 inches and lower it. This is one rep. Do 3 sets of 20 reps on each leg.
