Let's Exercise With Deskercise

Hi Sobat. In 2022, we must be healthier. Yes, we have a lot planned. Mas TIKI has tips for those of you who want to be diligent in exercising only from in front of the work desk. Her name is Deskercise. "deskercise" is a combination of the words "desk" (desk) and "exercise" (sport). So we can do light exercise without having to leave the office and don't even have to leave our desks.

Push Up Desk

The work desk can be used for sports in the office. Do light push-ups called desk push-ups using a work desk as a support. You can do this movement in your spare time during breaks. Try standing a few steps in front of the table with your feet together. Then place your palms on the edge of the table, give a distance of shoulder width apart and position your chest towards the side of the table like doing push ups. Do this movement in a few counts and repeat again.

Floating on the Chair

This light exercise can make your shoulder and hand muscles that feel sore from too much typing or writing can be overcome. The trick, you sit cross-legged on your work chair, place both hands on the right and left sides of the chair. After that, slowly lift your body by making pressure on both hands as a support. Hold for 10 to 20 seconds, then lower slowly. Include a 30-second rest period after your body returns to sitting in the chair. Repeat this light exercise 5 times.

Up and Sit

This movement is almost similar to the movement of floating on a chair. But the difference is, this movement you don't need the help of both hands to support your body. The trick is to sit up straight in a chair, then do a standing motion and then sit back down. Do this for a few seconds.

Chair Dips

Sit on the edge of a chair and place your hands behind your hips. Hands are on the edge of the chair and shoulder width apart. Make sure your hands are secure on the chair so you don't slip. Keep your chest high and your head up. Knees should not bend past the toes. Slowly lower your body down. Be careful not to bend your elbows to an angle less than 90 degrees. Extend your arms, lift your body up and support your weight with your arms. You can try 1 set of 6 to 8 reps.

So, ready to be healthier in 2022, right?
