If you work a regular office job that requires you to come into work at nine in the morning and stay in the office until the clock strikes five, there is a very good chance that you spend most of your day sitting at a desk. While there is nothing wrong with having a job like there, there is the undeniable fact that you probably don’t get a lot of exercise, and this can be a real problem because exercise is definitely essential if you want to live a long and happy life.
With all of that having been said and out of the way, it is important to note that people that work in offices usually don’t exercise because they simply don’t have enough time to. Getting to work at nine means that you probably have to leave your home by eight given the state of morning rush hours in most cities. Leaving work at five means that you would get home by six, leaving only fourteen hours of your day, eight of which you would spend sleeping and six of which you would spend relaxing with your family or getting the countless chores that people need to take part in on a day to day basis.
Hence, you should try using stationary bike pedals while you are at your desk. You can just pedal away while you are working, and if you do this thrice a day for about twenty minutes each you could very well end up burning close to five hundred calories! Just make sure you bring an extra shirt to work if you plan to do this because it will most likely make you sweat quite a bit.
