What are some exercises I can do while sitting in class?
Depending on how closely monitored you are, you can either make slight movements such as repeatedly tilting your chair back slightly to exercise your quads (please do not go back far enough to fall over!) or you can do isometrics; e.g., contract the muscles on the top of your thighs (quads) while also contracting your hamstrings. This should be undetectable by your teacher. You can do similar things with your chest, arms, feet, and the muscles on the front and back of your shins. You can read more about this in "Fit in Bits." I have some videos on youtube to illustrate as well. I will add one next week to show the sitting exercises more clearly.
