Office Workout of the Day – OWOD

Office Workout of the Day - OWOD

Since I was a teen I have always cared about fitness. Over the years, my level of motivation has changed as I have aged and entered into new life chapters. After I turned thirty, I started to realize that I need to stay more on top of how I take care of my body. Over the last five years, I have battled with acid reflux and an underactive thyroid. Due to general business and just being tired, I have let myself slack on staying fit. My eating habits have been less than desirable as well. I have not put on much additional weight over the last several years, but I have not improved in any way either.

A couple of weeks ago, I started going to bed earlier so I could get up and go to the gym before my family gets up for the day. This was and still is a struggle, but I have been able to get a good workout in at least 5 days each week for the last two weeks. Over two years ago, I purchased a few weights for my office and occasionally would work out from my office. I never worked out very hard at my office because I did not want to get sweaty or be uncomfortable. I don’t have a shower here. Today, I decided to challenge myself to do a simple workout every hour at my office to get me up out of my chair or from standing in place. I have a desk I can stand at and spend about half of my day standing at my desk versus sitting. To keep accountable and to challenge myself, I started blogging about my process at http://owod.fit. The idea is that I will do a workout-of-the-day at my office that is something anybody could do with limited or no equipment. You can follow along with me at the new website.

I hesitated using the acronym WOD, which has become synonymous with the Crossfit movement. I think Crossfit is a good thing, however, I also think that it has opened the floodgates to improper form and potential joint/muscle damage by those who do not take the time to learn proper form. This is not the case for all Crossfitters, but what I see on Instagram and Facebook is a good indicator that Chiropractors and Orthopedic Surgeons have a bright future.

I am not following Crossfit, nor do I plan to. I am simply using the acronym WOD, which stands for Workout-of-the-day, which was around far before Crossfit was a thing.
