Easy 10-Minute Workout You Can Do at Your Desk

Don't worry about rushing home after work to get to the gym. Get a workout while you work. Here are a few simple exercises you can do right at your desk.

Although slightly cringeworthy to watch as it's hard to imagine working out in a shared office, I can totally get down with the idea of taking 10 minutes out of my day as a freelancer to stretch, raise the heartbeat and cool it down, targeting the main muscle groups and joints.

The workout consists of:

  • 3 minutes of stretching, including a chest opener, quad stretch, and hamstring stretch

  • Reverse Lunges

  • Incline push-ups and push-up pulses

  • Squats and squat pulses

  • Tricep Dips

  • Tricep Stretch

  • 'Figure Four' Stretch

  • Seated Cat/Cow

  • Shoulder and neck stretch

Would you dare to do this at your desk? Let us know what you think!
