Get strategic about your daily exercises
The human head makes up about 8 percent of our body weight and when we hunch down to look at our screens, which includes the Zoom Happy Hours and Netflix binges, we are putting a lot of pressure on our neck and backs. We are also likely sitting or standing with poor posture, which affects our shoulders, hips, knees.
Matt Pippin, CSCS, Mobility Expert and co-Founder of Pippin Performance offers some ways to alleviate this:
1. Corrective exercises – “CARs,” which stand for Controlled Articular Rotations, are a series of exercises that are designed to take your joints through their greatest pain-free range of motion.
2. Set multiple alarms/reminders – By setting alarms throughout your day to get up and do the following activities, you’ll be in a much better place at the end of the day.
Walk around your house.
Do your CARs.
Switch work stations if possible
Do something to take your mind off of work for 5-10 minutes.
3.Sit on the Floor. Sitting on the ground is great for the hips, plus if you focus on keeping a long tall spine, you’ll train all those little muscles that are responsible for keeping a good-looking posture, while strengthening your core.
