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.
Exercise: Neck stretch Situation: At the dinner table Stretches: Side & back of neck
HOW: Sit up straight and grab hold of the edge of the chair. With the other hand, pull you head diagonally forward to stretch the back/side of the neck. Hold the stretch for about 10 seconds and repeat a few times on both sides.
This is great if you have a stiff neck after a long day at the office. You can of course do this stretch exercise in many other places as well eg. when on the toilet, in a meeting, etc etc.
