Hi, it's Cheryl.
What are you doing whilst you are reading this? Let me guess……… Sitting! Am I right?
On average, adults spend over half of their waking hours sitting, at least 8 hours a day! Now you may not consider yourself a coach potato, in fact I’m not even suggesting you are, but let’s just take a look how many hours you might spend in the seated position.
Why? Let me tell you.
One of the scariest things about chronic sitting is the way it begins to reprogram your entire body so your muscles and joints actually start begging you to sit. Continual sitting literally hijacks your muscles, lengthening some, shortening others causing a huge imbalance. This imbalance leads to poor posture, dysfunctional movement patterns and ultimately pain, discomfort, back pain and a higher risk of injury.
