So Long, Job Fat!

A typical workday can make you stressed, tired -- and flabby. And an hourlong lunchtime workout? Not gonna happen. Slim down and sculpt muscles you never knew you had (in your cubicle!) with this busy-girl's guide.

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.
