Pilates Exercises in a Chair to Improve Posture & MoodDec 23, 2021
You don't have to exercise for hours to get benefits from a workout!
You may not believe that even a few minutes of movement is good for you because you've probably heard that you need to exercise for at least 30 minutes for it to count.
Actually, that's not true!!
The 30 minutes minimum used to be what exercise pros and researchers recommended, but now that measurement tools have become more precise researchers have been able to see that even small amounts of exercise can have improvements of strength, flexibility, and mood!
So on days when 30 minutes of continuous movement isn't going to happen with your busy schedule, I recommend incorporating movement snacks into your day as much as possible.
This video shows you triceps dips, bridging, and a hip stretch you can do using a chair - you can do these in just minutes!
These 3 exercises will open your chest, strengthen your arms and upper back, and stretch your hip flexors to help combat the ill effects of sitting on your posture. Perfect for a day when you're sitting a lot.
So stop what you're doing and pick one of these moves to do right now!
And if you're looking for a longer workout - try this standing workout for your abs and arms that you can do anywhere!
