I get up in the morning; sit down in a car, bus or train. I go to work and sit another 8 to 10 hours on a chair. After work I sit in public transport or a car again.
When I come home after all day, I „finally „sit down in front of TV. I have severe lower back pain and I don’t know, what to do.
Does it sound familiar?
If yes, then, you cannot be surprised that your body is „crying „and wants to change something.
Most people decide well to visit gym. Generally, it is alright, but most of these people come to gym to „sit down” again. Nowadays gyms are perfectly designed for it. If you want to exercise with your legs, back, chest or arms, there are machines with a comfortable seat.
This article is exactly for you
…if you belong to people who:
- must sit in their work (on the chair at computer, in a car or anywhere else)
- you suffer from the backache you want to get rid of
Backache is caused mostly by several factors. These are not only flabby muscles which have certain tension but also contraction of those muscles which should be relaxed.
Today, we have prepared an easy TRX training for you which really everyone can handle. When exercised regularly, it will ease your backache.
Its name is Office training, because you may exercise it during lunchbreak in the office. It is a combination of power and stretching exercises which help to correct body posture.
Exercises you can do at work
How to exercise while sitting at a desk? The best exercise is MOVEMENT.
Don’t sit all the time!
Stand up and stretch the entire body in all 3 planes of movement:
- Sagittal plane
- Coronal plane
- Transverse plane
1. Sagittal (lateral) plane
The most used plane of motion.
Movement of upper limbs or legs to the front, back, up and down without the movement of the spine – isolated exercises. In a typical gym, this is a plane where we exercise 90% of machines.
2. Coronal (frontal) plane
Only on a few machines, there is possibility to work out in this plane. The movements typical for frontal plane contain movement of the spine into sides, or leaning of the body to the side. It does not mean to take a dumbbell and lean in front of the mirror.
3. Transverse (axial) plane
This is the plane which is mostly forgotten.
The truth is, it is very often used in everyday life – axial plane. In real life it is a movement by which upper part of the body or legs have to do rotating movement out of its axis.
