Burn calories while seated

Every calorie counts when it comes to weight loss, so here are some simple exercises that you can perform whilst remaining seated – whether at home or work, in an aeroplane, bus, and so on.

Foot flex

Keep both your heels on the floor, and point and stretch your toes upward as high as you can. Then relax both of your feet flat on the floor. Now raise your heels up whilst keeping the balls of your feet on the floor. You can do this a few times.

Knee to chest

Whilst bending forward slightly, with a straight back, wrap your hands around your left knee and gently pull it toward your chest. Hold this position for about 15 seconds before repeating the same routine with the other leg. You can try alternating legs for about 10 repetitions.

Body stretches can help burn calories too!

Keep both your feet resting on the floor. Now pull your stomach in and slowly bend forward whilst stretching your hands down the front of your legs towards your ankles. Try holding this position for about 15 seconds before sitting up slowly.

Knee lift

Lift your leg whilst keeping your knee bent. Make sure you contract your thigh muscle as you do so. You can repeat this about 20 to 30 times for each leg.

Consult your doctor

Always remember to consult your health practitioner before starting a new exercise regime or making intense changes to your current one – especially if you suffer from any medical conditions and for some reason are required not to place your body or yourself under any form of stress or strain.
