Colleen Saringer: It's hard to fit exercise into your day when your calendar fills it quickly. But I'm going to show two great exercises you can do while at work, try while you are on a conference call or even while wearing a hands-free headset. The first exercise is the warm pushup. This exercise is going to work the muscles of the upper body that includes your chest, your tricep and your back. Go ahead and place both arms on the wall, pull your stomach in, move yourself to the wall and then push yourself backup. Make it more challenging by lifting one leg and repeating the exercise. Do this exercise anywhere from 12 to 15 times.
For the next one, we are going to need a little more room. The next exercise is the split squat. This exercise is going to work the muscles of your lower body that include your quads, your hamstrings and your glutes. Go ahead and take a nice wide step with your legs, body weight in the heel of your front foot and lift up on the toe in the back foot, lower yourself down to the ground and then push yourself back up. When you lower yourself down make sure you maintain your balance and keep that knee from going over your toe. Try this 12-15 times and remember to do it on both legs. Be sure to talk to your doctor before you start any exercise program. Remember no matter how busy you are you can fit exercise into your daily routine. I'm exercise physiologist Colleen Saringer keeping you in the motion zone.
