Don’t fall victim to the negative effects of sitting.
Take a proactive approach to offsetting the hours upon hours of the hunching that is done in your cubical.
Sitting makes creates a situation where your muscles commonly become long and weak in the back (posterior) and short and tight in the front (anterior).
- Foam roll and stretch the quad and hip flexors (front) to lengthen.
- Perform glute bridges, deadlift variations (1-leg & 2-leg), x-band walks, sliding hamstring curls, etc… to strengthen.
- Gain some lost mobility in the mid-spine region (thoracic spine)
- Learn how to breathe properly (Westerners are chest/neck breathers)
- Be consistent and patient for change.
It kind of reminds me of:
The 23 and 1 Rule…
- In one hour I can offer you the greatest training session in the world. I believe this. I am confident in my abilities.
- Then I can watch as you destroy everything that we accomplished in the 23 hours that you have away from me.
