5 routes for individuals who sit all day

If you're like most of us, you probably sit a lot during the day. But biomechanically, the human body is best when it is in motion. Long periods of sitting shorten the hamstrings and hip flexors, turn the pelvis back, smooth the normal curvature of the spine and compress the sciatic nerve.

These routes are designed to undo all these optimizations. Carry out every movement slowly and carefully, relieve tension in every muscle and breathe deeply and fully. You can do this program at the gym or at home.
