Our increasing sedentary lifestyle, including sitting hours on end at our work desk, can wreck havoc on our fitness and health. It is a type of lifestyle with no or irregular physical activity, and a lack of physical activity is one of the leading causes of preventable death worldwide. For you the working people, does this means you have to leave your office and have a workout somewhere outside? Or is it possible to have the workout right at your office?

This infographic by Lloyds Pharmacy shows that your desk job should not prevent you from working out some exercises right from your desk or surrounding areas.
