Strength Train at Your Desk

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Sitting at a desk all day long is one reason your job is making you fat. If you can’t break away for a session at the gym on your lunch break, here are four toning moves you can do at your desk — without your co-workers even knowing. If your chair is on wheels, you can still do these exercises; just be more conscious about moving slowly and with control so as not to lose your balance and roll away.

AB LIFT

Slouching in front of your computer for hours on end doesn’t do anything for your core, so give this challenging move a try. If your chair is on wheels — bonus — it’ll be even harder to hold your body still. Just be sure to lift and lower your body slowly to prevent rolling. Place your hands on the base of the chair. If your chair has arms, for an easier version, place your hands on each arm. Press into your palms, keep your knees bent, and lift your tush off the seat. Lift your knees as high as you can to get the most out of this ab exercise. Hover over your chair for a few seconds, or longer if you can. Then slowly release your buns back to the chair. Repeat two to four more times.

CHAIR SQUAT

I love this move because you can keep typing away while doing it! With your feet together and your soles flat on the floor, press into your feet to lift your pelvis a few inches off your seat. Keep your body weight shifted back into your heels and your tailbone tucked in. Hold for a few seconds, and then sit back down. Repeat two to four more times.

INNER THIGH KNEE LIFT

No need to suffer from a flabby lower body just because you have a desk job. Here’s a move that will target your inner thighs as well as your quads. If your desk is fairly low, you might need to pull your chair a few inches back so you have room to lift your knee up. Sit with a tall spine and both feet flat on the floor. Lift your right knee a couple inches off the ground and tilt your inner arch up toward the ceiling (this will bring your right knee out to the side a few inches). From this starting position, raise your right foot as high as you can, and then lower back to the starting position. Be sure you’re leading with the foot, not the knee. Complete three sets of 15 reps on each leg.

STRAIGHT LEG TOE POINTS

This move looks simple enough, but it’s a great way to tone your quads, calves, and shins.Straighten your legs out in front of you, pressing your feet together. Lift your feet up as high as you can. Point your toes, then flex your feet as you keep your legs straight and lifted the entire time. Complete three sets of 15 reps, and do it without resting if you can.

“Tailored to Fit”

Stuff.TV UK Freedom Review

Sunday, July 1st, 2012
Stuff.TV UK July 2012

Stuff.TV UK July 2012

Wireless and light, the Bluetooth-equipped Freedom buds are thoroughly sealed off and sweatproof. The rigid neckband and optional push-on ‘Ear cushions’ hold them in place securely and make for a comfortable fit, although the in-line mic and controls on the right earbud are a little fiddly to use. Sound-wise it’s all good: they’re capable of a bassy, full bodied delivery that makes them every bit as nice to listen to as to wear.

Stuff says: These all-rounders are pretty, talented, and totally cable-free.

Tiebreaker ruling not a practical one

Monday, June 25th, 2012

Unfortunately, USA Track and Field did not consider Justin Gatlin’s suggestion for settling the tie between Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh for the third and final Olympic spot in the women’s 100 meters.

“I’m voting for Jell-O wrestling match,” Gatlin said. “Red Jell-O. That’s my favorite.”

That certainly would have boosted ratings, but after debating the situation Saturday night and Sunday, USA Track and Field came up with another solution that is a confusing blend of democracy, athleticism and random luck. This is how it will work, and you better take notes because I’m only going over it once:

First, Felix and Tarmoh will be given the option of declining the spot on the team and becoming the alternate while the other runner takes the final spot. (Yeah, that’s likely.)

If neither runner declines the spot, each will be asked whether she wants the tiebreaker to be a coin flip or a runoff. And this is where it gets complicated.

If both agree on a runoff, there will be a runoff. If one says runoff and the other says coin flip, there will be a runoff. If both say coin flip, there will be a coin flip. If neither runner chooses a method, there will be a coin flip.

Got that? Good. Because now we have to discuss when this runoff or coin flip would happen. And the answer is: We don’t know, other than it has to be determined by the end of the trials next Sunday when the Olympic team is finalized. And given that both runners are entered in the 200, which has its final Saturday, it could take until then before the runners decide.

Oh, and one last thing. The winner of the runoff gets to host the World Series. (more…)
