#92 – Stretching & Movement at Your Remote Office

by Robert Bertazon

in Podcast Episodes

With many workers now operating from impromptu offices at home, the need for stretching is more important than ever. Frequently, a temporary home office setup is ergonomically less than ideal which results in more strain on the body. In this episode we examine simple exercises to keep you loose and to help minimize the effect of poor positioning.

Topics Discussed:

  • A big issue with sedentary office work is posture, repetitive motion and/or staying in one position for extended periods of time. How does this affect us?
  • I have seen various reports that stretching is helpful and ones that say injuries are not reduced by stretching. Which is it, at what should we do?
  • What stretches to do you recommend for those of us working in an office, or right now from home?
  • Is there anything else we should do to help our joints and muscles stay limber?
