Easy Sitting Exercise For Everyone

Today I want to share ways to exercise while sitting.It is important to protect your health if you are less active or lazy to work out.

Try to do these exercises regularly and you will see the effects within 3 weeks, your body will become healthier and more energetic.

1) Wriggle your toes and your fingers whenever you can. This too is a stress buster and it gives you a chance to at least work your hand and leg joints. This will tell you how sore they are and if their condition is so bad, just think of the rest of your body.

2) Stand up and stretch yourself every half an hour. Most of the jobs today are indeed sitting jobs that are in one word sedentary. This is especially true for those who sit and punch away at the keyboard or toy with the mouse all day long.

3) Try breathing exercises. You might be surprised to know that breathing exercises too can lead to weight loss. If you are doing the breathing exercises properly, you will find that you can exert a lot of pressure on the muscles around the mid section.You can feel a tightening of these muscles each time you breathe in or breathe out. So go ahead and breathe properly, it is good for you.Breathe in air as strongly as you can and as you do so, tuck in your tummy as much as you can. Hold it like this for a few seconds and then slowly release your breath taking care not to let out your tummy. Try to keep breathing like this at least fifty or sixty times in a day.

4) Do not slouch in your chair but try to maintain an erect posture with your tummy tucked in. Slouching is a very bad habit. Not only is it bad for your back but it also gives you a very flabby figure. It is your way of saying yes to a comfortable, weight-gaining pose.Make it a point to always sit as erect as you can. It is also a terrific way to ward off back problems.

5) When sitting in your office chair, or at home stretch both your arms up as far as you can and hold for about 10-15 seconds. Do as many repetitions as you can. Start off with 10 and work your way up.

6) Ensure that your desk is strong enough to support your weight.While sitting use your arms and push yourself away from the desk. Push as far as you can stretching your back and hold for about 10 to 15 seconds. Repeat 10 times.

7) Clench your buttocks and hold for about 10 seconds and then release. Repeat this 10 to 15 times. This exercise can be done anywhere - standing at a bus stop, waiting for the train, while you are washing up at home or doing other housework, watching TV etc.

8) Shoulder Shrugs. While you sit in your chair raise your shoulders to your ears, then push your shoulders back and then down to relax again. Repeat 10 to 15 times.Try doing the opposite as well.Push your shoulders as far down as possible and then back to normal to relax. Repeat 10 to 15 times.

9) Using the arms of your chairs for support lift your body up and hold it for 10 to 15 seconds. Repeat 10 times.

10) Press your chin to your chest and hold for a count of ten - repeat 5 times then reverse and drop your head as far back as possible and hold for same count.

11) Raise both arms to shoulder level, but this time bend your arms at the elbow and clasp both hands behind your head. Twist first to the right, then to the left. Move with your whole upper torso. Repeat three to five times.

12) Keep your arms bent at the elbows - lift hands to shoulder height and then press shoulders down and back as if you are trying to put your elbows in your back pockets.Repeat several times.
