Looking for a standing desk in today's Black Friday deals? If you’re spending more time working from home and you’ve been thinking of updating your home workspace, Black Friday standing desk deals are a good opportunity to invest in a standing desk.

Sitting down for too long isn’t good for your body. Spending hours sitting down at your desk can increase your risk of chronic health problems, such as heart disease and diabetes, and experts have branded sitting to be the new smoking. In fact, the American Journal of Public Health concluded that sitting down for more than 8 hours a day can not only increase the risk of chronic diseases by 10% to 20%, but premature death as well.

As a fitness editor, I have been using a standing desk before they were cool. I remember being branded a fitness weirdo as I stood, wearing barefoot shoes at my standing desk in the office (in hindsight, the barefoot shoes were too much). I now find that on days where I don’t use my standing desk I have a sore back, and just generally feel sluggish by 5 pm. If you’re looking to add one to your routine,  we’ve hand-picked the best Black Friday standing desk deals, from electronic standing desks that can be moved up and down using a remote, to desk converters, that can be popped on any surface to help you stand and work.
