Situation: At the office
Exercises: Abs

HOW: You can do this exercise both as a static or dynamic workout. Most effective is the dynamic motion which requires both strength and coordination; Lean forward on a chair with wheels and assume the plank position, lower arms resting firmly on the cushion and upper arms in vertical position. Let the chair roll forward away from you as far as you can manage and then pull it back towards you again. Repeat! It’s a very effective workout and you will instantly feel your abs getting a full rundown.

It’s easier as a static workout. Then you just lean forward in a plank position and hold for as long as you can. You can also do this on a chair without wheels.

The Hulk – Upper body workout when waiting for green light

Exercise: The Hulk
Situation: In the car waiting for green light
Exercises: Upper body

How many times a day do you find yourself in the car waiting for that annoying traffic light in front of you to turn green? Now you can use that time both for a great upper body workout and also some relaxation.

This exercise is easy peasy. When coming to a stand still, grab on to the steering wheel as hard as you can and tense every muscle in your upper body. Focus on your abs and chest. When I say tense, I mean tense. You should look like the Hulk and breathing shouldn’t be too easy. Stay super tensed for about 15seconds, or for as long as you can manage, or until the light turns green. After you relax you will feel great and if you had any stress it will be left behind at the traffic light.
