The number one excuse for not working out is lack of time. Many of us work 12- to 14-hour days at work, and find it hard to leave the office at a decent hour—much less make it the gym to train our bodies.

So, I am going to take away your number-one excuse and share with you some exercises you can do at work right from your chair. The greatest benefit is you can do these exercises throughout your day and no one will even suspect you are returning emails AND strengthening your quads simultaneously. The exercises include:

  • Squats from a chair, which focus on the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings
  • Knee lifts and knee extensions for those of you who need to strengthen your quads but may have injuries to your knees
  • Bicep curls for the front of your arms

Try 8-12 reps of these exercises three times throughout your day a minimum of two days per week.
