Do desk workouts work?
Exercising at your desk can help counter the effects of sitting for too long. A small 2020 study found that doing short bouts of exercise multiple times a day can help improve blood pressure and heart rate.
Do under desk exercisers work?
In a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, researchers provided office workers with under desk bikes for 16 weeks. They found improvements in the study participants’ weight, total fat mass, body fat percentage, and waist circumference.
Is a standing desk good exercise?
It might not count as real exercise, but standing instead of sitting is still beneficial. Research has shown that standing desk users have a lower risk of obesity, type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some types of cancer. Standing also helps improve your posture and can reduce back pain.
