I_Am_Weasel: And a spot at the Republican National Convention?
JackieRabbit: Just do your Kegel exercises at work and save the rest for the gym.
cryinoutloud: Step 1--- Don't farking exercise while hanging onto a chair with wheels on it.
JackieRabbit: You'll get plenty of exercise clearing your cube or office, when the safety officers catches you doing this. Just do your Kegel exercises at work and safe the rest for the gym.
URAPNIS: cryinoutloud: Step 1--- Don't farking exercise while hanging onto a chair with wheels on it.Using a wheeled chair will help strengthen your stabilizer muscles.
trappedspirit: No sense of pride or no sense of dignity?
Christian Bale: When are people going to realize they need to EXERCISE.Not take a 5 minute break to do "chair exercises"
RobFMJ: There's the embarrassment of a coworker observing you doing this, then there's the embarrassment of eating it when you realize the hard way that office chairs are designed to roll with minimal encouragement
Leopold Stotch: You don't need a chair to do squats, pushups or lunges. I can see some usefulness for the other two.
Christian Bale: When are people going to realize they need to EXERCISE.Not take a 5 minute break to do "chair exercises"And NO excuses about "i'm too busy". You're not too busy to eat right? Well exercise is just as necessary and should be thought of that way.Oh and gardening and mall walking don't count unless you're 70+.
Electric_Banana: That's be a nice accident report."How did you break your nose?""Well, I was doing pushups on my wheeled chair and it slipped out from under me..."
Litig8r: Do people really believe that they can "get in shape" by doing a few minutes worth of exercise two or three times a day?
cefm: Fap = exercise?
The Voice of Doom: proteus_bChristian Bale: When are people going to realize they need to EXERCISE.Not take a 5 minute break to do "chair exercises"I'd put more stock in "4 minute chair exercises combined with proper portions in diet" than "lots of exercise but overeating as well"... as far as losing weight is concernedYeah, that assumes that losing weight or "working out" are the point of the exercise; which, in all fairness, seems to be what the article is going for.But if you're working at a computer all day and you want to avoid farking up your neck, shoulders and back, then a few breaks with certain exercises can be good.If you work with people who have similar jobs they'll likely have the same problems and know what you're doing or if they don't, you show them.CSB:For example, when a coworker started doing some office exercises her physio had shown her, I knew most of them and had a few more (having had some treatment before plus been dating a physio therapist for years)The other three 20-something programmers in our office displayed a mildly amused curiosity, but there was no need for embarrassment after they repeated a couple of things that made them hear their own tensed up muscles crack and notice an improvement.
Litig8r: Fair enough, and while I'm sure that will help with mobility and general comfort, I can't see it doing much long term to change anyone's overall health or fitness.
mdeesnuts: Joint mobility is a key component in both overal health and fitness. We were built to move all day everyday. See http://www.mobilitywod.com/ for some ways you can start making your body feel like it's 20 again.
The Voice of Doom: Yeah, that assumes that losing weight or "working out" are the point of the exercise; which, in all fairness, seems to be what the article is going for.
