If You Sit at a Computer All Day....Do This

I always find it ironic that even though I work for a fitness company, I've become LESS active since my job started. That's no fault of BodyRock's, my job simply requires me to work on my computer for about 9-10 hours a day. When I'm not on my computer, I'm answering emails on my phone. So as a result, I am easily the most sedentary BodyRock team member. I have a sh*tty spine. There's no way around it and regardless of how strong I keep my core, my scoliosis is quite severe and causes me a lot of discomfort all over my body after sitting for prolonged periods of time. But, if you're like me, there's something incredibly draining about staring at a screen all day and so it's hard to work up the motivation to complete a full workout after. So I try and do mini-exercises throughout the day in those strange pockets of down-time: when something is uploading to YouTube, while I'm on hold on the phone, even when waiting for my lunch to heat up. I've been desk-bound at most of my jobs for the past 4 or 5 years, so I've got quite the little repertoire built up. If you followed me around for an entire day, you'd think I was insane. But hey...it's how I get by. Maybe I'll make a blog about it for the rest of you desk-bound BodyRockers. Would anyone be interested? This is something I will DEFINITELY consider adding to my regime, though I haven't tried it yet, I feel I won't look quite as smooth as he does. At least to start. If you do try this, let me know if you notice a difference in the comments below!
