Depending on where you live in the world and what your weather conditions are, there are days when the weather is not conducive to getting outdoors to exercise.

Taking five-minute breaks every 2 hours will squeeze more exercises into your daily schedule.  Those 5-minute exercise routines will also give you a firmer and toner body.  You can exercise and get great results right from your work desk, whether at home or at the office.

The only thing you need for these basic exercises is an exercise ball (also called a stability or core ball) and a desire to exercise more!  The exercise ball is a fun, safe way to tone your abs, butt, back, and legs.

Here are a few exercises you can do at your desk to get fit, get trimmed and get back into the swing of things:

  • sit up straight on your ball to work your core muscles
  • do lunges
  • do squats
  • do crunches on the exercise ball

The exercise ball is an excellent tool to have in your fitness toolbox.  Tightening those abs and the muscles supporting your back will really help relieve back pain.  It is also a very good for improving your posture.  There are tons of exercises you can do with this ball and you will find that they’re all fun!

Performing these exercises for only 5 minutes every couple of hours will help you get fit a whole lot faster than waiting around until everything aligns up perfectly in the universe to allow you to go jogging or make a trip to the local gym. Get an exercise ball and start tightening those abs and strengthening those muscles today.

You can check out a variety of exercise balls here.  Grab one today and have some fun!.
