5 super-effective exercises that get you in better shape while sitting in a chair

Sitting too much is bad for your body, especially as you start getting up there in years.

It’s something I’ve been worrying about a lot these days. I have a desk job, and it’s often hard to get to the gym when my to-do list fills up with important tasks. And what’s more, I’ve even put on some belly fat, which could lead to a whole host of health problems in the long run.

When a fitness trainer told me about some exercises I could do in my office chair, I was skeptical at first. But after doing them for a while, I feel stronger and slimmer. So if the exercises worked for me, I’m sure they could work for you. Scroll down to check them out!

Statistics show that the average American has only four hours a day of free time. And according to Health and Healthy Living, many people use this time to watch television, scroll through Facebook, or engage in another sedentary activity.

The statistics also show that mothers have far less free time—only 36 minutes—making it hard for them to get to the gym or do much else. But we all need to move to keep our muscles and joints strong—and also cope with everyday stresses.

If you’re like me and don’t have enough time exercise, you’ll surely benefit from these five exercises. You can do them virtually anywhere. All you need is a chair.

In this video, fitness coach Denise Austin shows you how to perform five simple exercises that effectively burn abdominal fat—perfect for people who don’t have much free time.
