Back To Work Desk Workout

words Josie Broad

As we adjust into the new year and our work routine, long hours at your desk can leave you feeling stiff and fatigued. 


The good news is that you can incorporate a quick and effective desk workout into your daily routine to boost energy, enhance focus, and promote overall well-being. 


This brings us to our back-to-work desk workout that will help you stay active and energised throughout the workday!


Tricep Dips

Sit on the edge of your desk with your hands gripping the edge, fingers pointing forward. Walk your feet forward, lowering your body until your elbows are bent at a 90-degree angle. Push back up to the starting position. Repeat 12 times

Desk dips are effective for working your triceps and the muscles in your upper back.


Desk Push-Ups

Stand up and face your desk, placing your hands shoulder-width apart on the edge. Step back to create a straight line from head to heels. Lower your chest toward the desk by bending your elbows, then push back up. Complete 12 times.

Desk push-ups are an excellent way to work your chest, shoulders, and triceps.


Seated Flutter Kicks

Start by sitting comfortably in your chair with your back straight and feet flat on the floor. Lift both leg straight out in front of you, scissor your legs slightly up and down for 20 counts. 

This exercise helps engage your core and lower body muscles.


Seated Oblique Twist 

Start by sitting comfortably in your chair with your back straight and feet flat on the floor. Keep your hips facing forward and twist your torso to the left then to the right slowly with your core braced. Repeat 20 times.

Seated Booty Band Abductor

Start by sitting comfortably in your chair with your back straight and feet flat on the floor. Place the booty bands over your legs and secure above your knees. With your feet together, placed firmly on the floor, push your knees outward, this movement should be felt in your quads and glutes. Repeat 12 times. 

This exercise helps engage and shape your booty.

Repeat 1-3 times!


These exercises can be done in a matter of minutes, providing a quick energy boost and promoting overall well-being. Remember to listen to your body, stay hydrated, and take short breaks throughout the day to stretch and move. 

By making these small adjustments, you'll not only enhance your productivity but also contribute to a healthier and more balanced work life.
