If you sit at a desk all day long, no doubt you feel a little stiff and sore. Typically, ‘desk sitters’ experience tight hip and tightness through the chest, shoulders and neck.

I hate to use the term ‘lazy ass’, but literally that’s what we are – not because we are lazy so much as we just don’t know how to engage our glutes.
