While you shouldn’t give up on your home or gym exer­cise rou­tine, you can cer­tainly sup­ple­ment it with exer­cises done at your desk (and, on those extra-long work­days, it’s much bet­ter than doing noth­ing.) Here are a few aer­o­bic tricks to try dur­ing your next break between tasks:

* Glance at the wall clock and rip off a minute’s worth of jump­ing jacks. If you’re a begin­ner, try the low-impact ver­sion (raise your right arm and tap your left toe to the side while keep­ing your right foot on the floor; alter­nate sides)
* Do a football-like drill of run­ning in place for 60 sec­onds. Get those knees up! (Begin­ners, march in place.)
* Sim­u­late jump­ing rope for a minute: Hop on alter­nate feet, or on both feet at once. An eas­ier ver­sion is to sim­u­late the arm motion of turn­ing a rope, while alter­nately tap­ping the toes of each leg in front.
* While seated, pump both arms over your head for 30 sec­onds, then rapidly tap your feet on the floor, football-drill style, for 30 sec­onds. Repeat 3–5 times.
* If you can step into a vacant office or con­fer­ence room, shadow box for a minute or two. Or just walk around the room as fast as you can.
* Or do walk-lunges in your office or a vacant room. (You could also amuse your co-workers by doing these in the hall; remem­ber Monty Python’s “Min­istry of Silly Walks” com­edy rou­tine?). Set your PDA to beep you into action.
* No con­fer­ence room? Take to the stairs — two at a time if you need a harder work­out! Do this 5–7 times a day.
