Mayo Clinic Minute: 5 exercises you can do without leaving your desk


It’s important to incorporate movement into your day as much as possible. But that can be difficult if you’re stuck at a desk and don’t have much time for exercise.

Dani Johnson, a wellness physical therapist, says Mayo Clinic came up with a solution that can help people squeeze in some exercise throughout their day without having to leave their desk.

She calls them the "5 Fabulous Exercises."

They are chair pushups, desk pushups, chair squats, toe raises and sidekicks.

Johnson says doing these series of five exercises only takes a few minutes, and it’s designed to be done periodically throughout your day.
