​Think you can only work on your latin dancing in the dance studio?? Think again! Now you can work on your body isolations even at your desk at work… or pretty much anywhere you have a chair! Say goodbye to those boring days at work!  By the way, I’m rocking out my Clark Kent-inspired glasses.

Exercise #1: Chest & Back Isolations

(1 rep = forward & back)
Benefits: Upper & Lower Back, Chest & Abs

Tips: 
1. Sit on the front edge of the chair with your feet planted on the floor.
2. Keep a committed relationship between your butt cheeks and the chair. 😉
3. Squeeze your abs and back muscles to initiate each movement forward and back.
4. Use the edge of the chair to get further into the isolations.

Exercise #2: Ribcage Isolations

2 sets of 10 reps

(1 rep =  full circle)
1 set circling to the left and 1 set circling to the right.

Benefits: All the muscles around your ribcage.

Tips: 
1. Plant your butt firmly on the chair and don’t let your butt come off the chair while doing the circles.
​2. Squeeze your abs and back muscles to create the circular actions.
3. Keep the circles fluid by imagining there is a small hula hoop around your chest and you are keeping contact with the hula as you circle around.

2. Maintain a tall posture by stretching your torso up away from your hips. (i.e.: No hunchbacks allowed)
3. Rotate your torso first, then reach for the back of the chair to get more twist action. (but only as far as it is comfortable)
4. Keep your abs tight.

    My office chair is not even gonna know what hit it! Thanks for these! Also, totally digging the frames. “But if you take off the glasses, then mild mannered Li-Wen looks just like…”
