Everybody knows that being sedentary is not good for the body, and sitting’s even worse. One of the biggest problems we have with sitting is that the hamstrings don’t work. And a real simple way to help your body stay active and get going again in a much quicker way is to fire up your muscles.

I like isometrics. It’s a simple non-moving muscle contraction that can really help you when you’re sitting at the desk. So don’t be afraid to fire up the legs, squeeze the hamstrings a bit, suck in your stomach and fire up your chest, and that will really help you when you get up, have your muscles work right into the walking stance again.

So what that means is that, even when you’re sitting around the office not doing anything, you’ve still got your muscles being active.
