Hold the stretch for about 10 seconds and do a couple of reps for each side. You can do this stretch both to the sides, diagonal and pulling your head forward to stretch the back of the neck.

The Invisible chair – Leg workout when on the phone

Exercise: The Invisible chair
Situation: On the phone
Exercises: Legs

The Invisible chair is a killer leg exercise for when you are on the phone. Find an open wall to sit against. Try to get as close to sitting in a 90° angle as possible and keep sitting for as long as you can. It might also be a good idea to split this workout into a couple of sets because otherwise the person you are on the phone with might start to wonder why you sound funny.
