Desk Abs Workout

Yes, it is the middle of the day. On a weekday. And you are probably sitting at your desk listening to your manager explain why the numbers were down last quarter (I know you’re probably a Mechanical Engineer right now, but just go with it). And you start to wonder “What could I possibly do right now that would seem like I’m listening intently, and would burn calories at the same time?” Yes, this is how we all think in the middle of the day…

What could you do? Work on your abs! In fact, all you have to do is hold your stomach muscles tight as you breathe in and out.  Breathe in and hold your muscles, and then breathe out and contract them. Try to do this without rounding your lower back.

You can add a twist as well (Well, only if you’re in your office alone) by breathing in and then turning to the side. This mimics a mason twist without requiring too much movement.

Another twist is to move your hips from side to side as you do this. So breathe in, and move your upper body left while your hips go right. Do the same on the other side. You should be contracting your abs the whole time.

Finally to extend the simply breathe in-breathe out, simply lift your chest high as you breathe in, and contract your abs as far in as you can go as you breathe out.

People say you should do all the crazy abs exercises, but I say continuously work on your abs as you do your everyday tasks. You can do these while driving, sitting in meetings, sitting at your desk, etc. Combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, you’ll have those abs in no time!

Cheers Eights & Weights!
