You'd better stand up for this bit of news.

Sitting can wreak havoc on your health, and not just in the form of minor aches and pains. Recent studies show that too much sitting contributes to a host of diseases—from obesity and diabetes to cancer and depression. The typical seated office worker suffers from more musculoskeletal injuries than those workers who do daily manual labor. It turns out that sitting is as much an occupational risk as is lifting heavy weights on the job. The facts are in: sitting literally shortens your life. Your chair is your enemy, and it is murdering your body.

 
In this groundbreaking new book, Dr. Kelly Starrett—renowned physical therapist and author of the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller Becoming a Supple Leopard—unveils a detailed battle plan for surviving our chair-centric society. Deskbound provides creative solutions for reducing the amount of time you spend perched on your backside, as well as strategies for transforming your desk into a dynamic, active workstation that can improve your life.
 
 
You will learn how to:

Easily identify and fix toxic body positions

Eradicate back, neck, and shoulder pain

Mitigate carpel tunnel syndrome forever

Organize and stabilize your spine and trunk

Walk, hinge, squat, and carry with peak skill

Perform daily body maintenance work using 14 mobility templates for resolving pain and increasing range of motion

Whether your goal is to maximize your performance in or out of the workplace, lose weight, or simply live pain-free, Deskbound will work for you. It is a revolutionary cure for death-by-desk.

Recensione:

While Starrett is best known for his work inside the gym, increasingly he s discovered that many issues underlying injury and deceased performance are related to how people carry themselves in everyday life. Deskbound, offers a scathing critique of our modern environment, which he says encourages poor physical habits, as well as strategies to survive in it. --Outside Magazine

Are you sitting down to read this? If so, then start fidgeting, moving your feet, your shoulders, your ankles. Better still, stand up. Walk to the coffee machine or touch your toes - do anything but stay in your chair; because sitting, a habit that occupies more of our time than any other, is killing us. According to Dr Kelly Starrett, an American mobility expert and the author of a new book called Deskbound, our sedentariness is responsible for rises in obesity and disease, for a fall in brain health and mobility and, ultimately for lives being cut short. --The Saturday Times

Kelly Starrett, physical therapist and author of the new book Deskbound: Standing Up to a Sitting World a guide that aims to mitigate back pains, carpal tunnel aches and myriad other ailments currently afflicting desk jockies worldwide....Science backs him up: A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that physical inactivity is a bigger risk factor in mortality than obesity. --New York Post
