Office Workers Burn Fat By Moving More

Office workers move less during the day and face weight gain risks. Sitting at a desk all day or being confined to a cubicle restricts your movement.

And, since all movement burns calories, office workers have to take steps to manage weight.

According to a new study from the Université de Montréal, office workers have become less active over the last three decades and this decreased activity may partly explain the rise in obesity.

Keep your fat-burning enzymes active by standing and walking more during the day.

Research proves that when you sit, your fat-burning enzymes basically shut down. When you stand during the day, those fat-burning enzymes go to work for you!

If you have a sit-down job, try to stand as much as you can during the day and take walking breaks and lunches to activate those fat-burning enzymes! Any activity is good to go along with your regular workouts. Those burned calories add up!

During your workout, a "stand up" exercise will give you more strength benefits.

Example: work your hip abductors standing up instead of sitting on that machine. Your core will also get more work when you do an exercise standing up.....and, you will burn more fat and calories.

So, walk or bike when you have that option instead of always hopping in the car to go places....before you know it, most of your day will be active!

Bonus Tip: Brace your torso during the day as you sit, stand and walk and your abs will get extra work also! Bracing would be like "getting ready to take a punch in the gut!"
