Work in an office, no time to train? Try this the office workout


The Office Workout
For all my friends who currently work in an office and are frustrated with long working hours with no spare time to train, this ones for you. Only 7 exercises the complete head to toe office workout. I give this to my office clients as an extra resistance workout between our sessions and believe me is very effective but won’t have you dripping in sweat and ruining your office attire. I suggest starting with 8 or 10 reps of each to begin with then gradually working your way up to 15 reps as your strength and fitness level increases. I was recently consulting for a company about productivity and exercise in the work place and did lots of fun stuff with an exercise ball. I'll post one of these workouts another time but a swiss ball in a corner some where could come in very useful.
