Exercise Ball at Work

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

So I got it into my head that having a chair simply wasn't enough fun, I thought I would bring my big blue ball with me (encouragement by a lot of Storm team mates didn't hurt either lol)

I'm sitting here on it as I type and wondering if anyone has some simple small workout ideas that won't make me look silly in front of my co-workers? I basically sit on it and squeeze my thighs together and sit up straight and tighten my core throughout the day. The feeling at the end of the day is like me being on my elliptical for an hour. But I want to do more.

Any suggestions would be helpful!!

    Bigpawsup - Thanks for the ideas, I know what my lunch break will be spent doing!

I very much enjoy having the ball, makes me feel like I've gained a lot in my workout routine! Last night I got home from work after sitting on the ball and did 30 minutes on my elliptical, now my hams burn, which is a great feeling knowing that I've worked them out! I highly recommend the ball if you have a desk job!

    I've been on my ball at work for over a year. Try some leg raises under your desk and maybe sneak in a couple of crunches when bo one is looking!
