Blogging Jogging: Exercise at the Computer.

The Husband received this email and thought it appropriate for all you blogger friends. I thought it funny at first but now as I sit  here, I can do a few butt clenches and tummy tucks. You never know, blogging could be the cause of a healthier, thinner me!

“The exercises below have been adapted from a ProBlogger post. Most of the names have been modeled after popular social media services such as Twitter, RSS, Blogger, etc,

1. Cyber Squats. Set your chair aside for a few minutes and instead move to a semi-squat position with thighs parallel to the floor. Hold for 1 minute.

2. RSS Raises. As you’re sitting at your desk, straighten your knees and lift your legs out in front of you.
3. Ten Minute “Move it!” Break. Alternate jogging in place with jumping jacks – do a minute of each and repeat 5 times.
4. Twitter Tummy Tone. Tighten your abdominal muscles for 30 seconds and then release.
5. Social Squeezes. Tighten your gluteal muscles for 30 seconds and then release.
6. Ten Minute “Move it!” Break. Grab a step stool and climb up and down.
7. Inbox Incline. While you’re sitting with your feet on the floor, raise your heels so you are on the balls of your feet and lower them.
8. Ten Minute “Move it!” Break. Do walking lunges around the house. You can add some weights and do bicep curls at the same time.
9. Blogger Breather. Close your eyes and focus on your breath. Count to 10 as you slowly inhale through your nose, thinking positive thoughts. Exhale through your mouth, again counting to 10. Release all the tension and stress out of your body.
10. Sign Off Stretches. Shoulder shrugs – with your head at your chest, shrug your shoulders up and down. Neck Rolls – relax your shoulders and let your head roll forward. Slowly rotate your head in a circle. Repeat five times.

    So funny that you are posting this….Logan sent me a link last week talking about how bad it is to sit at your desk for long periods of time.

      The thought that this is needed and has been worked out is what’s funny to me. I’m sure a hundred years ago they did not have the need for sitting down exercises.
