When you're at your desk doing squat, why not squat? It works your legs and your behind.
Scoot away from your desk a bit, move to the edge of your chair and sit with you knees at a 90° angle. Push your heels into the floor to lift your fanny off the chair 3 to 5 inches. You will be leaning forward over your desk with you upper body. Now, simply hold the position to reap the benefits. Hold it for as long as you can and repeat throughout the day.
A few things to consider:
- Make sure your knees are right over your toes, so you don't hurt your knees.
- Once you are up and actively squatting, lift your pelvis up a bit and back a bit to make your glutes work more.
- If you want a little more work, add a few small pulses to the position by slightly straightening and bending your knees.
Fit's tip: This is a great exercise to prepare your legs for ski season, which is right around the corner. Yippee!
