Working in the office forces us to lead a sedentary lifestyle, which does not have a good effect on health. When in the evening you realize that during the whole day you got up from your chair just a couple of times, it's time to change the routine!

The modern rhythm of life does not always allow you to spend time on full training, so some exercises can be done right behind the desk. On average, you need to spend at least half an hour during the work day. Even for these 30 minutes of movement, your body will thank you!

If you take a closer look, you can find a lot of good opportunities to train in the office. You just need to learn how to use them. Any training, including office, you need to start with a warm-up. The ideal option is to climb and go down two or three floors. It's good to do this every hour or two. You immediately "wake up" the muscles from the sitting position. And at the same time, you have a rest for a couple of minutes from the working routine. Now let me introduce you 8 simple exercises that can be done in the office.
