How much time do you spend in front of a desk? Have you asked? Most Mexicans work days of 8 to 12 hours a day, which often prevent them from doing any physical activity; However, can you exercise in the office?

To prevent your muscles and your health from being harmed by lack of mobility by sitting, GetQoralHealth , with information from The Huffington Post, we present you five exercises to perform in the office. Check them out!

1. Flexors. These muscle groups are at an especially high risk after long days at a desk. Kneel on the floor, pick up your left leg and place your left foot on the floor, keeping your knee just above the ankle.

Keep both hips aligned horizontally as you move your torso toward the wall in front of you. You may feel a stretch in the calf and Achilles. Place your hands on the upper part of the left thigh for support.

2. Abdominals . Lift your arms above you and lean back slightly, then return to your original position. If you have difficulty balancing yourself, keep your eyes facing forward or down on the ground.

3. Release the energy of your column. Lie on your back, with your feet on the floor and your knees bent. Bring both knees to the chest gently. Next, extend the left leg on the floor and keep the other right knee bent.

4. Neck. Place your arms behind you, and interlace your fingers, raise your arms. You will feel how your chest is stretched. Remember to do this exercise regularly throughout the day.

To maintain good health you need to do 30 minutes of physical activity, and an ideal place is the office. Try it!
