So Long, Job Fat!
Try This at Your Desk
One in four working women gained weight on the job in a single year, according to a study published in the International Journal of Obesity. The main culprit? Long hours (and no gym time). That's why we've put together an at-work workout routine you can swap one of your coffee breaks for. Don't worry -- we won't make you do jumping jacks in your cube or run laps around the parking lot.
Ellen Barrett, creator and star of the Fat Burning Fusion DVD, designed this goof-proof Pilates and yoga-inspired routine. A 15-minute session will burn between 60 and 130 calories.
What You'll Need: A chair without wheels.
Perform the following exercises as a circuit or separately throughout the day, two or three times a week.
