Worried that sitting at your desk all day is taking a toll on your health? Just moving around even a little bit can make a huge difference. Here are 3 super easy ways to get your blood circulating while you’re sitting at your desk at work.

Being on a computer or writing can make your hands and arms feel stiff,  so get your arms pumped by taking a few minutes to do 10-15 reps of bicep curls by holding a regular desk objects like a stapler or water bottle. With the item in your hand, hold your arm at a 90 degree angle while you curl your arm towards your chest. This will work out your arms and give them a break from all that computer work.

Leg lifts are the perfect desk exercise to work out your leg and abdominal muscles. And the best part? No one will notice you’re working out! Just sit up straight in your chair, and while tightening your core, straighten your leg up parallel to your hip. Repeat this 3-5 times for each leg and hold each rep for 5-10 seconds (or as long as you can!).

To work out your back muscles, specifically your traps, simply shrug your shoulders up to your ears as far as possible, and hold that position for about 5-10 seconds before relaxing. Continue this 10-15 times and you’ll feel the burn in your back muscles for sure!
