Wanting to workout is easy (or hard, for some) but finding the time to do it is tricky, especially when we’re bound to our desks at work and sitting through a traffic jam for most part of our days. And all that sitting can actually increase our risk for obesity along with backaches, poor posture, leg cramps and tense muscles. While it may seem like you don’t have a choice, these exercises that you can do at your desk prove otherwise.
