DeskWorkOut

51dlK8j0o3L__SL110_ WELCOME !  We are happy you are here! We created this website to help motivate our friends, family, co-workers and others like us who simply don’t get enough activity. Let’s face it, sitting for hours on end is bad and while we get lots of mental activity, we need a nudge to get the physical activity that we desperately need.

If you can relate to the need to get more active, then you are in the right spot.

We are focused on providing you with weekly information and motivation to keep you on track. Why? Because as they say, we’ve “been there, done that” and started to pay the price for too much desk work and we want to help you avoid that same fate.

Now, don’t get me wrong, this website helps keep us motivated and active too! Blogging about exercises has been informative, not to mention the products we’ve been buying for our home gym so we can recommend them to you.

Fitness Tips:

  • Check with your Dr. before starting an exercise routine.
  • Eat something within an hour of waking to kick-start your metabolism (a half banana will do)
  • Breathe correctly when exercising:
    • Cardio / Endurance Exercises – take deep breaths and get into a rhythm
    • Running / Endurance Exercises – breathe deeply and in rhythm
    • Weight / Strength Training – breathe out when your muscles are contracted (this is the hardest part of the exercise) and breathe in when you return to the starting position
    • Stretching / Flexibility Exercises – breathe deeply and in rhythm
  • Stretch after you have completed your workout
  • If you must spend a lot of time sitting, be sure to stand up and move around every 30 minutes

 Sitting isn’t your only option for a productive day at the office – Visit our Fitness Shopping page to get some ideas on desks that offer other options. Also be sure to read up on whether a standing desk is right for you before you purchase. If you still decide to purchase a stand up desk, be sure you have a good mat for your feet and space for your work materials – papers, mouse, pens and desktop supplies like paperclips, etc.

  • It is important to balance your routine with exercises that work opposing muscles

After your ab crunches be sure to do lower back exercises. Same for your arms and legs – exercise the front and the back muscles. Strengthening muscles together helps you keep not only your strength, but your stability.
