Are you working behind a desk most days? Many years ago we never used to sit down and were a lot more active then we are today. What does this mean? Sitting places our hip flexors in a shortened, tightened, active position. Shortened muscles that stay shortened for hours at a time get stiff and overactive. Ever feel that pain in the crease between your hip and your inner thighs after sitting for a while? How about back pain? What happens when you become older and haven’t done anything about it? Why wait to find out? This is why it is vital to do corrective exercises and mobility work so that you don’t suffer with these problems. Stretch that chest, work your upper back and try the foam roller out on your upper back. Stretch for at least 2 minutes when you stretch.
