Workout at Work #2

So hopefully by now you are using a stability ball instead of (or in conjunction with) a desk chair.

If so, you’re getting a great core workout every time you’re using it.  Great job!

The next thing to add to your at-work fitness regime is wall push-ups.  I know, I know…push-ups are not fun.  They have never been my favorite either.  However, after completing one session of boot camp, I can now successfully do push-ups in plank!  Yay!

Push-ups are incredibly important in any workout.  And, the more you do them, the better you get at them and the easier they become.  True story.  A push-up is a compound movement, meaning that it works more than one muscle at time.  You will be working your chest, triceps and shoulders every time you add these to your routine.  So, you get a great workout and save time.  Love it!

Here is how you do a wall push-up.  Face any empty wall in your office.  Stand at least a foot away from the wall.  Plant your feet firmly and facing forward.  They can either be together or shoulder-width apart.  Place your hands on the wall, about shoulder-width apart or a little wider and do your push ups.  Go slowly and make sure you’re breathing.  Breathe out while you lower yourself and breathe in when pushing back out.  The further you are away from the wall, the tougher it will be.  **Want even more of a challenge?  Do your push-up on the edge of your desk instead.

The best part of this is, that even if you can only do a few at a time, you are still getting a great workout.  Try setting a goal for a specific number each day.  Even if you have to take a small break in between, push yourself to reach that goal.  You will see a difference before you know it.

Keep up the good work!

Happy Fitness!
