Office Exercises – Leg Muscles

Welcome to week 7 of Plym Physio’s Office Exercises blog. Our penultimate office exercise! 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 Seven

The Ultimate Office Challenge. Challenges have been quite a thing lately on social media, so heres one from us! Share it with your colleagues, and challenge yourselves to a group workout.

Without letting your chest rest on your desk, lower your bottom as if sitting down onto the chair and then return to standing. It works the big leg muscles and if you are keeping your chest up, it will work the trunk muscles too!

Who can hold it for the longest in your office? Share this blog and let us know your office records!
