Gregory Englesbe loves to work out and become stronger and fitter. He often goes on hikes with his family in the many natural areas in and around Cherry Hill, New Jersey. But sometimes that’s not enough to offset his sedentary work environment. As the CEO of E Mortgage Management, LLC, Englesbe spends most of his working hours behind a desk. In order to stay in shape, Englesbe has folded these three office exercises into his work routine:
- Hamstring curl. Gregory Englesbe bends his arms at his elbows while bringing one foot up to his rear while straightening his arms to his side so that his arms go down when his leg goes up. Try 20 reps to get started on this exercise and realize the benefits such as stronger hamstrings and biceps.
- Knee lift. This is pretty easy and self-explanatory. Simply raise your knees in front of you while you move your arms up and down. Gregory Englesbe finds that this strengthens the opposite side of the leg as the hamstring curl.
- The Hallelujah. This exercise is not at all subtle, but it does work out your core while helping you get your cardio in for the day. Sweep your arms in front of you and above your head while you sway side to side. You don’t have to yell “Hallelujah” while you do it, but it helps get into the spirit of this spirited office workout.
Gregory Englesbe finds all of these workouts very helpful in his goal to stay in shape and fit while working mostly indoors.
