Chair Exercises for the Office

All you need is a chair...

1. Chair Squat: 
While sitting, lift up until your hips are just hovering over the chair, arms out for balance.  Hold for 5-10 seconds, stand all the way up and repeat for 15 reps. 

2. Dips: Make sure chair is stable and place hands next to hips. Move hips in front of chair and bend the elbows, lowering the body until the elbows are at 90 degrees. Push back up and repeat for 15 reps.

3. Elevated Plank:  Make sure the chair is stable and kneel in front of the chair. Place your forearms on the seat of the chair and lift your knees off the ground.  You are now supporting yourself with your feet.  Hold for 30 seconds and repeat two to three times.
