Bring it back to centre and release let’s try the other side, so arm goes up back up and touches the back of the neck grab hold of the elbow and sit up nice and tall triceps, stretch notice if you feel a difference in the stretch between one arm to the next inhale deeply and exhale completely again we’re going to try and hold the stretch 30 seconds, it should feel really good and allow you to feel a little looser and more limber through your arms and shoulders let’s try that side bend here, so inhale up and as you exhale tilt over away from the elbow in the air feel a nice stretch to the side of your body and breathe well come back to centre and release the arms from here take your hands by your chair and just start to pick one knee up and switch so our goal is the energy we want to get moving and even if you’re not standing, you can still bring the energy into your body without your co-workers even noticing that you’re exercising so just pull the knee up and watch how you engage your abs as you do this postures great shoulders are down and back and you’re thinking positive awesome thoughts good just one more each side.
let’s try both knees so engage the tummy pulse fees up to and down okay this is actually difficult and good workout abs in and down now again if this is too much with both legs you can return to the single leg that we did previously but I’m loving the tummy tuck that.
I feel the ab work and my heart rates definitely pick it up good let’s do two more and the last one now sit up nice and tall move to the edge of the chair if you need to and kick one leg out and centre you might want to lean back a little bit further to do this because as you move you’ll notice your abs are starting to work which is great because we know that strong abs improve our posture and helped relieve lower back and hip pain.
So if you look pretty awesome good so one foot forward now you can stay with single legs or if you have space the energy for it let’s try to so extent and then okay definitely working hard now and I not left my office chair you’re doing great.
let’s do two more and last one good from here I’d like you to sit at the edge of your chair and engage your tummy control all you’ll do for me squeeze the tummy muscles and release and squeeze and release I know you feel funny but school youth you feel it don’t you and releases let’s try one more squeeze and release now try the same with the bottom so squeeze the bottom and release good squeeze make sure you’re making a funny face,

Engage your glutes it’s actually hard and releases left one engage and release the nice job take a deep inhale up exhale fold forward hinging at your hips good do that again inhale reach exhale fold inhale reach exhale fold inhale reach exhale fold inhale reach up and hold and this time.
I want you to bring one arm down and one arm up twisting in the spine bring it back up to centre and try that again reaching down so often centre our lower back twist gets really tight throughout the day and up so doing simple movements like the seated twist can help loosen things up and ease pain in tension stress causes paying attention to and exercise has been shown to relieve stress so you’re on a good track right now.
