Guest after5 Posted April 3, 2003 Report Share Posted April 3, 2003 Hi, Xena's last message about doing calf stretching while sitting at a desk gave me an idea for this thread. I am guessing that many of us on this board have office jobs where we sit for an extended period of time. I am curious. Do you do any exercises when you are at your desk that help you in your ballet class? If this has been discussed before, sorry for repeating. I did a seach on "sedentary exercise" but found nothing in the archive. For example, I do leg lifts. It keeps the muscle above my knee strong which is important to me since I had some knee injuries. Basically, I just sit at my desk, and extend my leg in front of me and flex my foot. I hold the lift for about 10 secs and then lower. I do 10 reps, 3 times, at the beginning and the end of my day. It is a mutation of what my therapist showed me to do on the floor. If you have any exercises you do, I would like to try them and add them to my routine. Quote Link to comment
