Incorporating desk exercises into your Monday through Friday routine can help you stay fit even if you’re confined to your office all day. The best way to keep your body in shape is to squeeze physical activity in wherever and whenever you can. While you can’t makeover your body in simply doing desk exercises alone, you can speed up the process and begin developing some muscle tone.

While you could jump rope or do jumping jacks in your office to incorporate some cardiovascular activity into your day, it isn’t very realistic. Doing so would mean changing into fitness appropriate gear—and needing a shower afterward. If this is the case, you might take an hour and go to the gym. The point of desk exercises is having a simple, low-maintenance and accessible form of fitness that you can do in your dress shirt and slacks. Strength-based activities fit the bill. The easiest strength training moves for you to do are the ones that use your own body weight.
