What happens when you sit for a long period of time

Seating for an extended period affects every function of your body. It affects posture, heart and cardiovascular health, lung, brain health, and digestive system.

We have 360 joints and 700 muscles that move our skeletal. Our vascular and nervous system depends on movement to function.

Warming-up is not to be confused with stretching they both have a specific purpose. Warm-up BEFORE exercising. Stretch AFTER exercising. Done correctly, warming up and cooling down may offer help in reducing your risk of injury and improving your athletic performance.

Warming up helps prepare your body for aerobic activity. A warmup gradually revs up your cardiovascular system by raising your body temperature and increasing blood flow to your muscles. Warming up may also help reduce muscle soreness and lessen your risk of injury.
