Pain with Sitting

Tune-up Tuesday Episode 25 - Mobility Tips When Flying

This past weekend I was in New Orleans celebrating my girlfriend's birthday.  But before I was able to experience the smells and raunchiness of Bourbon Street, I had to sit on a plane for 3-4 hours. 

I don't know about you, but when I get off a plane my body feels terrible.  Especially given my history of low back pain, flights constantly make me feel stiff.  

We all know that sitting for long periods of time isn't great for your body.  Creep sets in, muscles get tight, and potentially we can have pain post flight.  It may take a little due diligence, but we can offset the long hours of sitting in a cramped area.  

Follow along with the video below when you get to your hotel.  These exercises will help activate the postural muscles that will help reverse the sitting posture.  

If you have any questions, comments or concerns let me know!
