Ep #504 – Dr. Kelly Starrett – Why Sitting Is Worse Than Smoking & How You Can Include More Movement Into Your Life To Improve Your Health!

Shares

Dr. Kelly Starrett is the man behind Mobility WOD and the author of Ready to Run: Unlocking Your Potential to Run Naturally, Becoming a Supple Leopard 2nd Edition: The Ultimate Guide to Resolving Pain, Preventing Injury, and Optimizing Athletic Performance and his latest book is called Deskbound: Standing Up to a Sitting World which is mostly what we talked about today.

What struck me as interesting was that it didn’t matter really how much you excercise, if you sit for a long time each day. I’m big into personal fitness, exercise, sports and outdoor activities.

I love to surf, play basketball, tennis, go hiking, do jiu-jitsu and basically anything outdoors and fun. I also love working out in the gym or in the backyard but none of that has any effect on our health if we sit for hours on end each day.

That was a blow to my ideas because I thought I could just workout more or harder if I sat for a long time. Turns out that’s not the case.

At the beginning of the show I referenced an article I wrote which can be found by clicking here.

With that said, sitting is dangerous not because sitting is in and of itself bad but it’s because you’re not active, your body is sedentary for hours at a time and this is not natural.

Human beings were not designed this way. We’re designed to move. We’re designed to experience this 3d physical reality through the movement of our bodies.

I hope this show inspires you to look into getting a standing desk. The one I have can be found here and there are many available over on Amazon.com as well.
