Relax Your Back Office Workout – Chair Squats

Many sedentary jobs slowly cause muscle imbalances to develop in the low back and pelvis. These eventually cause distortions of the normal spinal mechanics of low back. Left untreated, this can produce irritation of the spinal joints, muscles and nerves resulting in various pain patterns. Some of the more common symptoms include: low back and leg pain.

Remove any high heels. Begin by sitting up straight and forward in your chair. (Make sure your chair does not roll away.) Bend your elbows and position your arms in front of you as shown. Squeeze your buttocks and abdominals and then slowly stand up straight. Then slowly return to the seated position. Repeat 10 times.
