What is a Microburst?

A microburst is a quick, simple exercise, or bout of physical activity that provides you with a full body workout and increases your energy level. Microbursts have real, concrete benefits and I don’t think you can find a more convenient exercise.

60-Second Desk Exercises

Each of these desk exercises works a different part of the body and lasts anywhere from 60 seconds to five minutes.

For those of us who spend a lot of time at the computer, the seated back rotation stretch is for the back.
Break up all those conference calls with calf raises.
Tap and reach with this full-body stretch mid-day, and you’ll see a difference in your energy level.
These shoulder rolls will help relieve some of the tension in your neck and shoulders.
