Four Office Exercises that will Help you Beat that Belly Bulge

Four office exercises that will help you beat that belly bulge

It’s a problem area for many women, so don’t stress about it too much, but if you are looking to lose that belly weight in the new year, start at the office instead of the gym. You’re there for at least half the day, right? So, it makes more sense to sneak in a workout at the office than it does to plan a whole routine in an hour a day at the gym. These four exercises can get you on your way to a flatter belly right now.  You should also check out my post with 7 easy ways to exercise at work.

Ab contractions

1.) Sit in a chair with good posture and feet in front of you.
2.) Contract your abs and hold for 10 seconds. Release.
3.) Repeat for a total of 10 times.
4.) Do this exercise five times a day until you’re able to hold your abs for 30 seconds at a time.

Oblique reaches

1.) Sit straight up in a chair, feet in front of you and shoulder width apart.
2.) Sway to the right side until your right elbow almost touches your right leg.
3.) Return to original position and repeat with the left side.
4.) Do this for a total of five times on each side and repeat three times a day. This helps strengthen your obliques.

Knee raises

1.) Sit straight up in a chair, feet in front of you and shoulder width apart.
2.) Raise your right knee up and meet it with your elbow halfway.
3.) Return to original position and repeat with the left side.
4.) Return to original position and raise both knees.
5.) Do these movements for a total of five times each, repeat three times a day.

Ab reaches

1.) Sit straight up in a chair, feet in front of you and shoulder width apart.
2.) Raise your arms above your head, palms out, touching hands together.
3.) Lean forward as far as you can go, reaching to the floor, without hurting yourself.
4.) Return to original position and breathe deeply for 10 seconds. Repeat steps two and three.
5.) Do this for a total of ten times and repeat three times a day.
