Sitting is the New Smoking: Office Workout Moves

Office Workout Moves

Ever wonder how bad sitting behind a desk all day is for you? Maybe you used to be in the field and now think that your 30 minutes at the gym is enough to combat 8 hours behind a desk? Studies show that you are better off working out at the office several times a day than sitting and then hitting the gym!

Do my suggested office workout several times a day and you will fight that sitting disease.
