If the pictures that illustrate the blog don’t bend quite like I did, watch the video and try a lighter version!
When working with a computer, it is important that we do exercises for the shoulders, chest and back. It is necessary to get the shoulders back again to open the chest as well. When working at the computer, the shoulders are often rotated inward, which leads to a shortened position of the pectoral muscle, so backward movements are essential.
I made a video of a good exercise that is great to do with a chair.
The following exercise is for opening the chest and shoulders and stretching the back.
The exercise is very simple.
- Stand facing the back of the chair.
- Move your feet away from the chair and place your straight arms on the back of the chair.
- The back remains straight.
- If it is painful to keep the legs straight, they can also be slightly bent at the knees.
- From this position, bring your hips back and chest toward the floor.
It is important that the back remains straight and not arched.
As you inhale, come up a little and as you exhale, let yourself go and go down as far as you can.
