Ultimate Guide to Deskercise

by Sep 28, 2017Guest Post, Health

If you follow me, you know I am a big proponent of standing desks, bike desks and not being in one position too long. If you are a Professional Sitter, you must get up every 45-50 minutes to prevent glute amnesia and save your back, knees, and hips. Let's Deskercise!

There’s no way around it — being sedentary for most of the day is harmful to your health. Performing a desk exercise, or deskercise, every so often to break up the biological monotony of sitting still isn't just good for your butt, it's good for your brain. That being said, investing in a fitness tracker really comes in handy, especially for kids.

You can read more about them on this site.

Through the right combination of regularly practiced desk exercises, you can keep your body moving and active, even while working productively at your desk. Some activities don't even require you to leave your chair. The following infographic outlines five desk exercises to perform at your desk, whether you're in an office or at home.
