Us at BHL go crazy for a high-impact workout, green juice, and the occasional cupcake. It’s all about moderation, and following a routine that feels best for your body. Today, we have Nadia Murdock back, on our segment, Fit with Nadia. You can catch her last post here.  We’re very inspired by her motivational and inspiring tips that she brings to our blog!  
If you are anything like the girls at BHL, finding time for a solid workout can be difficult with pending deadlines and client meetings.  However, today’s’ go-getter doesn’t scrap her workout because of a heavy workload, she makes time for it! 80% of Americans do not do the recommended workouts required per week, which is more than HALF! In my last post, I shared how you can fit in a workout during the work day.  Now, I am revealing how to make it work right in your office!
Deskside push-ups: Brainstorming ideas for a marketing pitch and looking to channel those creative juices?  Why not work your upper body in the process? Using your office desk (make sure it can withstand your body weight) sneak 3 sets of 8-12 repetitions throughout the day of push desk push-ups. If your desk cannot support your body weight you can always perform a wall push-up instead.

Over Head Press: Being that there no weights in the office (I keep a few light ones in mine) grab a stack of printing paper for this move. This exercise can be performed in your desk chair or standing up. Using both hands, have the paper stack chest level then push the stack of paper over head and return to your original starting point. To add intensity while standing, add a squat when pushing the paper over head. Do this move for 15-25 reps.  (To make it even harder, use two stacks to paper).

Squats: The best part about this workout is that it requires nothing but your own body weight! If you are lucky enough to have an office shut the door and get some of these reps inWith your hips stacked over your rear stand with your feet a little wider than shoulder width apart. Roll your shoulders back down away from your ears maintaining a neutral spine lower your body making sure your knees don’t surpass your toes. Slowly rise to starting position and repeat. Do this for 15-20 reps.
