We dare you to lift your foot (it's not as easy as it looks)

The at-your-desk hover challenge: Work your core by lifting your foot off the ground – here's how to do it

1 of 2

1. Sit tall, with your knees bent and your shoulders over your hips and level from side to side.

2. Engage your abs to hover one foot off the floor for as long as you can. Switch feet and repeat. It’s vital you don’t move your pelvis, shoulders or head. This exercise is too easy if the rest of your body isn’t as still as a statue. If done right, co-workers looking at you won’t even notice that your leg is hovering off the ground.
