Need to squeeze in a workout at lunch time, but can’t make it to the gym to exercise, shower, and make it back to the office? No problem! This lunch time workout can be done in your office.
Lunch time is the perfect time to workout. You can reboot after an arduous morning and then kick it into gear for the afternoon. The only problem is that fitting a workout in can be tough. Between driving to the gym, changing into your workout gear, exercising, showering, changing back into your work clothes, and getting back to the office, there is very little time to spare. Worse, you won’t have time to eat, and you’ll be stressing about every second.
Not to worry! There is one exercise that can be done in a minimal amount of space, has enormous benefits, and won’t require you to sweat or move enough to require changing your entire outfit.

Better yet, with even a modest level of training and practice, you’ll be able to do this workout without breaking a sweat, making it the perfect lunch time workout.
