Tuesday, April 5

I’m sure you’ve heard someone say how bad sitting is for our hip function, but have you ever wondered why? It’s all about stability in the hip. When we are sitting in a chair it’s very hard to keep the hip stable and we default to a pretty bad position.

This leads to shortening of the tissues around the hip (quads, hip flexors, etc…) and that causes problems when we are trying to move properly in a squat or other exercises.

Watch the video below for a great explanation of how this all works. It’s nice to know that sitting (in a chair) is bad for us, but it’s better to understand why.

Now you can demand that standing desk!
