Tips to find healthy balance between work, exercise

Flip flop work and cardio positions to improve your fitness level.

If you have a desk job, then make sure to be on your feet as much as possible when exercising.

Conversely, for those who are on their feet all day, such as laborers, nurses, waitresses, etc., take some pressure off the joints by sitting down for cardio. Ride an exercise bike or do seated strength training exercises.

Some people might think that a seated workout isn’t very effective, but the main factor is that it’s important to get your heart rate in the cardio zone for a desired length of time.

And reversing where the tension is from your job and workout can be beneficial in many ways.

Many studies have found that sitting most of the day can be about as bad for a person’s health as smoking.

For office workers, it’s obvious they should try to walk, jog, run, etc. Basically, get on your feet as much as possible away from work.

At Home Fitness has a great selection of treadmills and elliptical machines to choose from to get you up and moving.

Sit down on a recumbent bike, such as this LifeCore Fitness 860 RB, or stationary bike and get your heart rate up while giving the joints a break.
