Exercise for the Demotivated and Time Strapped, Week 3 of 3

Exercise for the demotivated and time-strapped

Week Three

This is the last week of a three week blog series for people that would like simple exercises they can build in their day to day life to improve their flexibility, strength and brain health.  This week I cover exercises to do while you are working at your desk and just before you nod off to sleep.

Desk Chest Stretch

Desk Chest Stretch

Benefits of this exercise: 

Stretches tight muscles in the chest and the front of the shoulders which often leads to poor posture

Tips:

  • Hold the back of your chair with your arms straight and lean forward
  • If you sit for long periods at your desk do this stretch twice a day holding for 20-30 seconds
