Office Exercises – Abdominals

Welcome to week 6 of Plym Physio’s Office Exercises blog. We are releasing a new exercise each week, try to do them at intervals through the day, little and often is best! Below you will find a video where Physiotherapist Nicola demonstrates how to perform this weeks exercise properly for maximum benefit.

Why is desk exercising important?
Many of us spend a majority of our day working at a desk, which brings it’s own issues in terms of physical health; stiffness, muscle aches, even stress and fatigue. By keeping moving you are stretching and using those muscles, keeping your joints supple and getting a bit of blood flowing!

Plym Physio has put together a series of exercises you can do whilst at your desk, as well as some challenges that you and your colleagues can have fun with! Exercise doesn’t have to be boring, and it doesn’t have to be energetic to be beneficial!

Week Six
We all love a good abs workout don’t we? Now you can do it at your desk! We can’t guarantee ‘abs of steel’ after doing this exercise, but we can guarantee that it will help with automatic tummy muscle contraction, providing support to your spine.

So, sit up tall and relax your shoulders. Gently start to press down. Not only should you feel your arms working, you should get that automatic tummy muscle contraction. Now you can mix it up, press down, pull up, 1 hand doing each, sustained hold or quick pulses. It’s up to you!
