Thank goodness my classes were scheduled or already in session, as I needed every reason to get out of the house and move, for the sake of my health!
The "SITS" is much more extended from my own four walls, and outside of the Olympics, as more data is being produced about how dangerous this type of (non) "movement" is to our health.
Just read through the image below:
On a more personal level, for yourself, challenge yourself to stand instead of sitting, walk instead of standing and relax in a more active way!
As well, strengthen the weak posterior kinetic chain muscles (these are on the backs of us) and stretch the tight anterior muscles of the body (the front). Just by moving more, this will be a good start, but eventually include some forms of resistance training and more complex stretching postures to get a more full balance.
Exercise classes are not enough to say you are an active individual. You need to be active through out the day- sitting less, moving more!
