Warm-up: exercises that can be done at work

Charging at work is a normal practice in many developed countries. This does not mean that you have to carry a yoga Mat and spread it right in the aisle between the tables.

You can choose a set that will not hinder colleagues, but to help stay alert all day. Here are a few exercises which advises the website blog.rabota.ua.

1. Quick socks

Quickly knock the socks toes under the table.

2. The rise of the stairs

If you want to stay in shape, forget the elevators. Always take the stairs. For a more powerful load can from time to time to jump two steps at a time or deliberately to accelerate.

3. Running in place

Blast off literally a minute from work, stand up from the chair and go running on the spot, not leaving your workplace. Then you can immediately get down to business.

4. A “Walker” around the office

Another way to exercise – just walk around the office. For example, to go to colleagues with whom to discuss the issue, making it in person, not through messengers and email. Even a few minutes away from the computer will allow you to freshen up.

5. The rapid growth

Stand near the table, place your feet at shoulder width and go up on tiptoe. Hold at the top and then lower heels to the floor. Repeat this several times.
