5 muscular problems with sitting down all day:
1. Tight hip flexors (front of hip)
2. Tight cervical extensors (back of neck)
3. Tight chest
4. Weakened upper back
5. Weakened abdominals
Sounds bad doesn’t it. What does this mean? All are massive contributing factors to bad posture, aching and pain but you can start to help yourself in one easy step – get up and move around!
If you are desk bound, set yourself a challenge today. Every hour (more if possible) stand up tall and walk about. Doesn’t have to be far, just “lengthen” your muscles and move.
Tightness leads to chronic tightness which leads to problems and pain. See to it before it sees to you!
