With a little bit of creativity, you can strengthen your muscles even while sitting down. Abdominal squeezes, for example, can be performed without a lot of movement. Simply sit upright in your chair, contract your ab muscles, hold for two to three seconds and repeat. With some concentration and proper breathing, you can get a mini workout while sitting at your desk.*
You can tone your side abdominals while sitting too. Start by interlacing your fingers behind your head. Inhale, and as you exhale, lift your left knee and touch it with your right elbow. Switch and repeat at least five times each side.
