Stuck at a Desk All Day? Try This Out…

Yesterday, I created the “desk jockey workout” challenge on Tribe Sports. And thought it would be a good thing to post on here. In the evenings, I’m on my feet for hours, but during the day, I’m stuck on my butt, writing, making calls, sending updates, etc., etc., etc.  So, this is something I need, and thought others might, too!

Here’s the challenge:

  1. For 1 month (though, try to make this a life habit!)–every work day
  2. Every hour, get up for a minimum of 2 minutes (go get coffee, use the ladies’/mens’ room, talk to a co-worker or boss about something in person, instead of emailing–whatever it takes!)
  3. Do 20 seated calf-raises every other hour
  4. Keep up good posture throughout day
  5. Do 10 squats every hour you don’t do calf-raises
  6. Take the stairs instead of the elevator every day/every time
  7. Park as far away from the door as possible
  8. Do 10 chair dips at the beginning of your lunch break, and when you return from lunch
