Sitting All Day, 5 Great Desk Exercises To Try
Humans are hardworking species that work till 9 to 5, sitting all day long in front of the desk, spending all those hours constantly sitting on a chair that lacks productivity, that’s when problems arise inside the body. Sitting with a perfectly aligned posture is tough but keeping the back straight is a must. The vertebrae and pelvis will at some point start hurting if the sitting posture isn’t proper for prolonged hours.
Some simple exercises that anyone can do while just sitting on their chair are as follows: Relieving Neck Tension, Segmented Cat-Cow, Seated Heart Opener, Seated Leg Raises and Diaphragm Breathing.
Before starting any workout there should always be some simple warm up exercises to loosen up all our tensed muscles.
