Let tension go with stretches you can do at your desk!
Standing quad stretch both sides: Just take your hand and pull your lower leg in toward your body. If you aren’t quite feeling it, you can pull your hip forward a bit.
Tricep arm stretch: bring your elbow to your ear gently pull with your opposite arm
Neck rolls: Circle your neck, then let your head fall forward and back
Waist Twists: Simply slowly twist your trunk side to side
Seated hamstring stretch: Reach one leg forward and tip and your upper body toward your leg
Seated number 4 stretch: cross one leg over your knee and carefully fold forward
2 Arm Reach and Tip: Just like in our screenshot of Fittbe Barre, Reach two arms up high over your head. Engage your waist, and then tip over to the right. Hold for a few moments, and then lift up and over to the second side.

Standing Calf Stretch: Simply standing, and maybe stabilizing yourself by reaching a hand toward your chair or desk, reach one leg behind yourself and plie your back leg. Holding that position, slowly stretch your knee, moving the stretch into your upper calf muscle or “gastrocnemius.”
