1 Minute workout from your chair

When you're stuck in a seated position, sneak in some stretches. Hold each stretch for 15 to 30 seconds, stringing together a few to create a one minute workout!

 

Sitting reach (stretches Abs, chest, and shoulders).

Sit in a chair, feet firmly planted, back straight. Extend your arms overhead, palms facing each other. Slowly arch your spine over the chair back as far as comfortably possible.

Chair reach and drop (stretches arms, back, and shoulders).

Sit on the edge of a chair, feet firmly planted, back straight. Bring your arms up behind your back, hands clasped, and slowly lift them away from you back as far as comfortably possible. Lean forward from your hips, so that your chest touches your thighs, and continue lifting your arms towards the ceiling.

De-Slump stretch (stretches chest, shoulders, and upper back).

Sit on the edge of a chair with your legs open and pelvis tilted slightly forward. Lift your chest and squeeze your shoulder blades together and down away from your ears. Extend your arms out from your body at 45° angles and reach them slightly behind you, palms facing forward.

Site and twist (stretches back, shoulders, and sides).

Sit up tall in a chair, feet flat on the floor. Place your right hand across your body onto your left upper arm. Reach your left arm across your chest, and immediately twist to the right and grasp the back of the chair with your left hand, bringing your chin over your right shoulder as you turn. Repeat to each side.
