Get up and move!

We’ve all heard that sitting all day and leading a sedentary life isn’t healthy. What can you do if you need to sit most of the day?

On days  when I sit or stand at my desk for about 8-10hrs I get some movement in by doing something similar to the following. Every 60-90min I do one block of 4 exercises. The entire sequence takes about 20 minutes. I enjoy it because I have more energy in the morning and by the afternoon the reps get shorter so it’s more motivating. The jumping jacks are great because they get the lymph moving.
