Please share your favorite tips with us, and we'll pass them on to the rest of the accountants out there burning the midnight oil.

The lunge
This is a great exercise to improve the flexibility in the quadriceps and glute muscles as well as to improve your overall coordination and sense of balance. After doing lunges for awhile, you will notice that it is easier to climb stairs, easier to squat down to grab something off of the floor, and that there will be less soreness in your buttocks and legs from prolonged sitting.
  1. Stand up with your feet together, one hand resting on the back of a chair for balance.
  2. Step back with one leg so that your legs are about 60 degrees apart.
  3. Keep your back straight.
  4. Allow your knees to bend until you touch the floor with the knee of your back leg.
  5. Straighten your legs again.
Repeat 10-15 times for each leg. The rest of the story...
