To tone and strengthen your abs while you sit, you can complete a set of knee-ups. All you need to do is ensure you’ve warmed up a bit. Take the office stairs, walk around for five minutes or so and then you’re ready to go.
Alternatively, try sitting on an exercise ball instead of a chair - so long as your boss doesn't object! Great for strengthening that core,
So there you have it. Getting strong abs isn’t all about working out with weights at the gym, it’s all about using your own bodyweight to the best effect. And it’s so easy, you can do it sitting down!
I would also recommend using an exercise ball at your desk. I only do it at home (not sure my work would really understand!) and I love to swivel about on it, and do the odd set of sit ups when the feeling comes over me!
I don't think I would ever bother doing small exercises at my desk. The rewards would be so minimal. I'd prefer to really go for it in a proper workout session.
I have just tried the first exercise with my office chair which has wheels, wobbly arms and squeaks. Not recommended! I think it would be ok in a standard wooden chair though.
this is extremely useful - my stomach muscles really need help but I need the easy steps to start. Thank you!
