This is one of my favorite at-your-desk workouts. Try it when you hit that mid-day slump and need to hit the reset button. The combination of stretching and strength-building moves provide a good balance and will mitigate the negative effects of sitting for a long time. If you're like me and need a reminder to press "play," I recommend setting your iPhone alarm to remind you sit less and get moving.
