To this point in time I’ve been a personal trainer for 12 years. In those 12 years I’ve worked with countless people who have had desk/sedentary jobs that have been vastly different as people but they all have had a few things in common. When I show them things they could do at work to help negate the sitting and just feel better the same thing gets said in a lot of different ways.
“That never occurred to me.”
“I would never think to do that.”
“I always forget about it.”
As a society the majority of people sit WAY to much.
Driving to work.
All day at work.
Sitting once home again because they’re tired from working all day.
What can I do today to help feel better?
- Find ways throughout the day to get up and move and help alleviate the pain and stress you get from sitting to long.
- If at all possible get a standing desk or a stability ball to sit on to get you more upright.
- Make it a point to get up as much as possible even if it’s to do the smallest thing and not the exercises I have outlined below.
Be sure to check out the video below that will show you 3 things you should be doing everyday ESPECIALLY if you sit for work! After the video below that I have each exercise shown broken down in still images.
