A major trend in the health and fitness world in the last year or so has been the serious, negative side effects to sitting. Among these side effects, according to the Mayo Clinic, is an increase in risk of diabetes, as well as obesity and a nearly 50% increase in the risk of dying from any cause, and over 100% increase in risk of cardiovascular disease. Clearly, we should all be taking a moment to move more frequently and reduce our sitting throughout the day. Even as a gym owner, I try to make a point of standing while working on my computer, and continuing to stay on my feet at least for 5-10 minutes per hour.
Besides the very serious health issues associated with sitting, being behind a desk, hunched over all day, can also take a toll on the efficacy and quality of your personal fitness. When you come into a CrossFit class, personal training appointment, or any other offering at Summit Strength after sitting all day, there are a couple problems.
Thankfully, there are multiple activities which can at least help reduce the effects of sitting before starting a workout.
I definitely recommend looking up videos on these on YouTube to help you understand better how to do these movements.
