Get Tighter Buns — Without Leaving Your Office

You work all day, come home exhausted and have zero time for the gym. How on earth are you supposed to get into shape? Before you give up on getting healthy, there are some easy ways to incorporate exercise into your daily routine. You can walk instead of taking the subway or bus (or at least run to the bus stop or jog to your favorite lunch spot), take the stairs instead of the elevator, or you can even sprint to your co-workers every time you need to deliver a memo. Sure, some of these may be a bit embarrassing to do, but you’ll have the last laugh when, with consistency, you start seeing results.

But if you want to really find ways to tighten up in between conference calls, look no further. We rounded up specific moves to do in the privacy of your office, demonstrated by Asics elite athlete and ambassador and owner of DRS Athletics Rosario Rios-Aguilar. All you need is a desk, a desk chair* and less than 10 minutes.

Note: If you do these movements as a circuit, you can get a bit of cardio in as well. Do the first move, then move into the second exercise and then the third, and repeat for three rounds. Tighter buns will soon be yours.

*To avoid injury, be sure to lock the wheels on your desk chair, or use a stationery chair instead.
