In today’s day and age spending 9 plus hours in front of a computer has become somewhat commonplace. Countless professions require focused employees to be fully engaged in what is going on online and therefore to be glued to their computer screens all day. Have you ever thought about what sitting all day does to your butt? Have you noticed that while your career may be progressing your butt has totally lost its perk? Well, have no fear because we’ve done the research for you and you’ll find all the answers right here.
The downside is that while you are working hard at whatever is going on, on that computer screen your glutes stop working completely. And this is bad news: not only for your butt but for your entire body. You butt muscles – better known as your glutes are in fact responsible for your hip movement, pelvis rotation and stability as well as your posture, therefore sitting all day also affects your flexibility and in turn your entire gym routine and also cause pain in other parts of your body.
The upside is that there are plenty of things you can do to counteract this “damage”. Watch your posture, a straighter spine can work wonders as can a regular workout regimen. Making sure you are sitting properly at your desk with the correct support in the form of a chair and desk height is imperative for your body. So is hitting the gym. Not only to get your heart pumping, but for stretching, activity and improving the flexibility and mobility you are hindering by sitting all day!
