Standing desks are becoming so popular, and that makes this posture geek so happy! I actually have a full sit/stand desk that I use on a daily basis.
In fact, I’m getting a device that will turn any desk into a sit/stand desk delivered to my home next week. It will be installed on the non sit/stand desk in my office. I’ll try it out and write a review for all of you! The cost of this particular product is far less than buying a full desk.
In the meantime, for those of you who have standing desks already, I created some standing exercises for you to do. “But wait”, you ask, “if I’m standing, this is much better that sitting, so why would I need desk exercises?”
The reason that “sitting is the new smoking”, is due to inactivity. Our bodies need and crave activity. Yes, standing is overall better for your hips and pelvis and requires more muscle activation. But moving throughout your day (versus standing stationary for hours on end) is really the best thing for your body.
So yes, you need exercises for your standing desk. Luckily I have 3 easy easy exercises for you published on the Autonomous website right here.
Take a read, and give them a try, and let me know what you think! These are quick and easy and can be done anywhere!
How many of you have standing desk options? I would LOVE to hear what brand you have, what you spent, how often you use it, and what you think overall. Inquiring minds want to know so comment below!
