It's easy to assume that, with all this extra time on our hands, our bodies would be in great shape. All that yoga, walks, and home HIIT workouts are great for our fitness levels. But if you are spending the majority of your day working from home, this is where things get complicated. Is your WFH (work from home) setup starting to take its toll on your body? Here are three exercises to increase your strength and mobility in your back and shoulders.
Apply our Re-Up Prepare roll-onto the back of the hamstring and the calves. The Camphor and Menthol infused formula will help create blood flow and ease any pains you may have before working this muscle group.
The Jefferson Curl is a strength and mobility exercise for the posterior chain.
Since we are often seated at our desks for long periods, we develop suboptimal posture. Doing exercises to maintain or increase the mobility and flexibility in your spine is essential for reducing low back pain.
Beginners should start with no weight and stand on the ground. For a more advanced variation, you can stand on a box and use a lightweight. As you progress, you can increase the weight.
Wall Angels are another strength and mobility exercise to improve posture. Specifically, the muscles which hold the shoulders back. This is a great exercise to correct or prevent rounded shoulders, especially from long days in front of a computer.
Similar to the Wall Angels, this strength and mobility exercise targets your shoulder muscles. But Wall Slides focus more on your shoulder blades (scapula). To do this exercise correctly, you need to focus on squeezing your shoulder blades together. Range of motion will vary from person to person, so work within your limits.
Once you've completed all your mobility exercises, make sure to apply your Recovery Cream. The eucalyptus and magnesium will help with any inflammation and relax the muscles. We hope these tips can aid everyone in their WFH fitness endeavours.
