On-the-Job Muscle Fixes
If you sit at a desk for long periods of time during your work day, odds are you aren’t checking they way you sit. Your muscles, bones and joints are taking the toll for immobility and bad posture.
Many Americans face this problem. Sitting for long periods of time can cause muscle fatigue and tightness. Carla Sottovia, PhD, Director of Professional Fitness Training and a Senior Professional Fitness Trainer at Cooper Fitness Centerdemonstrates some easy stretches to do while at your desk so you can loosen up!
If you sit at your desk for an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. workday or similar, Carla advises to take the stretch break once every hour. She also suggests you move around when you can. Ideally, this would be about every hour as well, but if you can’t, just get in a quick walk as much as possible.
Practicing these stretches guarantees less pain and stronger muscles. What are your daily stretching routines at work?
