Office Desk Exercises – Easy and Time-Saving

Most of us working at a desk job remain inactive for nearly 6 to 8 hours a day. The stress of deadlines and sedentary nature of our modern office desk job takes a toll on our health.

During long hours of inactivity, our muscles adapt to this ‘inactive’ mode resulting in pain.

We thus give you 3 simple office desk exercises.fitness trends
