With New Years just around the corner, many Americans will be making a resolution to get in better shape. But many people simply do not have the time to hit the gym for hours on end.
Have no fear. Fitness experts Diana Nyad and Bonnie Stoll of the fitness company Bravabody are masters of The Office Six -- six easy workouts everyone can do while at work to keep that body toned.
Grab onto your desk with your hands about shoulder-width apart. Keep your elbows locked out at the beginning and the body as flat as a plank from your shoulder blades to your heels. Your butt should not be in the air. Bend your elbows and lower your chest toward your desk then push back up.
You could just go through the motions -- don't. Really squeeze down and squeeze up. Do 20 reps, or do 10 to 15 and work up to 20.
If you would like to work the back of your arms, which get a little loose as you get older, you can do tricep pushups. They are just like the desk push-ups, just move your hands closer together. So you are working the fatty area. Go down and up. Try to squeeze hard so you work everything else plus the triceps. These are hard, so do one or two if you can and work up to 20 reps.
