Exercising at your Desk

Exercise is a great replacement for surgery.

People can answer instantly why they can’t find time to go to the gym for a regular workout because of their pressing schedules. The reality of modern living has made it impossible for many of us working as parents, caregivers, professionals and students to find extra time for exercising. This does not excuse us from taking good care of our health and choose dangerous liposuction or cosmetic surgery to sculpt their bodies. Taking care of our bodies does not take too much time and can be done by simply eating a healthy diet and working out from time to time. It is so easy that you can even perform simple exercises at your desk, even at your office space while reading this article.

Arm Workout

  • Sit straight and position your arm behind your hip (same side). Bend forward to your right and hold for ten seconds. Return to the starting position and perform this on the other side. Do simple weight training by combining this with a water bottle of small weight. This adds resistance and increases the difficulty of the exercise for better results.
  • Place weights at end of your arms by holding a water bottle or some files. Drop your arms I in line with your body with the weights secured at both hands. Extend and raise your right arm forward slowly until it reaches your shoulder level, hold for a few seconds. Drop your right arm slowly to your side and repeat this motion on your left arm. Raise your right arm for 10 times and switch to the left arm.

Raise your right arm to the right side until it reaches your shoulder level. Hold for a few seconds and return to the starting position. Do this for 10 times and repeat the movement at the other side.

Legs and Hips

  • Stretch your right leg forward until they are at the thigh level. Hold for ten seconds and release. You can perform this exercise alternately for each leg or do stretch them simultaneously.
  • Position your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your right thigh muscle and raise your right foot off the floor while maintaining your knee bent. Hold for ten seconds and perform exercise on the left leg.

Abdominal Muscles

  • Sit up straight and wrap your arms around your body like a hug. Contract your abdominal muscles and slowly press down with your shoulders. Hold the position and feel your abdominal muscles tense. Repeat for ten times, ten sets a day.


  • Shrug your shoulders and raise them as high as possible. Hold the shoulders when they’ve reached the optimum height for ten seconds. Repeat as desired.

Pain during exercise may indicate muscle injury. If you feel pain during any stage of the exercise, stop the exercise and consult your doctor. Some form of discomfort should be felt when doing an exercise. When the pain is felt at the start of the exercise or it becomes unbearable this will likely indicate that you have injured your muscles.

Plastic surgery is an expensive and painful method of rejuvenating your looks. If your doctor recommends this type of treatment seek a second opinion to learn about other safer and natural alternatives.
