Sit at a desk all day long?
Here are a few things you can do to offset all that sitting.
Ideally, you could do them a few times a day in your office.
Your hip flexors get tight & weak so these two variations of the kneeling stretch will help. Raising the same arm will intensify the stretch.
Whilst still kneeling, open the knee to the side (10 or 2 o’clock position) to stretch the inner thigh.
With lotsa sitting, your butt muscles literally stop firing, so wake dormant glutes up with the glute bridge.
Open the chest with a wall or door stretch.
Strengthen the upper back while opening the chest up with a wall stick up.
