Of all the uses for a chair, sitting in one is the least conducive to a healthy lifestyle. In fact, studies show that sitting more means dying sooner – even if you exercise.
Even if limited mobility forces you to work out with a chair, you can still experience the benefits of exercise. With the assistance of a chair, you can do strength, balance and flexibility exercises and improve your ability to perform everyday activities like carrying a bag of groceries and getting in and out of a chair. Exercise helps to increase your circulation, lubricate your joints, strengthen your postural and mobilization muscles and stabilize your spine.
