Research has been showing the harms of sitting for long periods of time and the hours you spent at your desk are now being seen as equivalents of the health harms of smoking cigarettes. So if it is really true that “sitting is the new smoking” there are steps you need to take to make sure you avoid the harm associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

The executive workout


From the time you are driving to work, or sitting on transportation, staying at your chair in the office or sitting on your couch when you relax after work, sitting is taking up most of our daytime and it’s having really adverse effects on our health.



Desk break exercises:

  • Stand up from your desk and squat. Repeat 5 – 10 times.
  • Rotate pelvis from right to left and back looking over your shoulders. Repeat 5 – 10 times.
  • Stretch your arms and bend forward (touch your toes) and back (aim for the celling). Repeat 5-10 times.


Break time suggestions:

  • Use the stairs (sprint upwards)
  • Take a stroll around the office at lunch time
  • Go to your club for a speedy workout
