Would you like to get fit while you sit? If you struggle with balance issues or have achy, arthritic joints that make it hard to stand for prolonged periods of time, you will want to find alternative ways to work out safely. This is especially important because being sedentary accelerates muscle atrophy and joint deterioration.
Mobility is essential to your physical and mental health. When your heart rate increases, your body is flooded with oxygen-rich blood that supplies muscles and organs with the nutrients necessary to fully perform their functions. Enhanced circulation also provides a big brain boost that improves mental clarity, decreases depression, and regulates rapid, anxiety-provoking breathing patterns.
You don’t need to be on your feet to experience the bevy of benefits related to exercise. By shifting your sweat session to the comfort and convenience of a sturdy chair, you can still reap the rewards of physical activity.
Powering up your body is as simple as pulling up a chair. You will need a set of light weights to complete this workout. For best results, repeat the entire circuit three times.
