This is for all you executive athletes, aka you people with your butt in a chair most of the day. We know prolonged sitting is not good for your health. We also know it can wreck your hip mobility, force you into a junky position and create chronic lower back issues.
If you don't care about you hip mobility or spine, how about this. IT WILL HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT! Watch the video below to see what I'm talking about.
A friend of my Juliet Starrett referenced this on Facebook about a week ago and it's also referenced in the book The Story of the Human Body by Daniel Lieberman. I highly recommend you read this book. The numbers for this video are based off a 150 lbs person calculated at this site.
Switch to standing more and your body will thank you for it.
