Exercise to Combat Prolonged Sitting

Everyone seems to be sitting more and for longer periods of time these days, especially those who are still working remotely. In addition to sitting, we are looking down at our devices more and more which increases the flexion on our cervical and thoracic spine and in turn wreaks havoc on our low back (lumbar spine).

Here are a few exercises to do throughout the day to help combat the prolonged sitting and forward bend. Set a reminder for various times throughout the day and perform 1 set of 5-10 “reps” of each of these. Aim for at least 3-5 sets per day to start.

1. Cobra/Baby Cobra with Sliding Shoulder Extension

2. Cat/Cow into Birddogs

3. Thoracic Spine Rotation
