Covid Back

Many of you are working from home because of Covid. You are finding it hard to take brakes with all the Zoom meetings. Now your back, shoulders and other parts of your body you didn’t know exists are hurting. Here are the questions I ask: is your home setup is the same as your ergonomic office setup at work? Are you taking brakes especially lunch? Are you sitting at a desk, table or kitchen counter? What is your chair, a desk chair or dining room chair? Now you see where I’m going but another question is do you stretch a couple times a day? There is more to it than you think. If you own a stand up desk, great but you still need to stretch and move around. Go to https://gearupforfitness.com/videos/ which have a couple videos of stretches and foam rolling. The stretches on the bike are great for sitting in front of computer as well the foam rolling. Latter this week, I will post another video of stretching and foam rolling. Try to take breaks and stretch, your body will be happy you did it. Stay healthy and safe!
