4 Full-day workouts
Work sitting all day in front of the computer. This is one of the most common scenes in the offices today. "The fact that we are seated for so long can cause or facilitate the occurrence of various problems, such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity, depression, premature death and problems in the spine or other joints," says orthopedist Rodrigo Junqueira.
to reverse the effects of daily sedentariness, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, with a balanced diet and, of course, the practice of physical activities. There are even exercises that can lessen the effects of working all day sitting. "The posture is something that we know the importance, but we do little to prevent or strengthen the muscles that are involved," says physical educator Marcelo Santana.
He explains that, even without realizing it, our posture is changing and causing damage in the entire posterior structure of the body. "Working sitting creates involuntary vices that gradually decompensate all subsequent muscles and cause cervical lordosis, shortening (for lack of stretching), internal rotation of the shoulders and pains in the spine throughout the day," says Santana. To avoid these problems, Marcelo recommends to adopt a routine of stretching for the whole body, between 1 and 2 times a week, along with the strengthening in the bodybuilding. "It is worth to include exercises that offer answers in muscle imbalance, always with professional help," adds Marcelo. Here are the exercise suggestions:
