Most people spend a good deal of their working hours sitting down. So, time for exercise and some stretching may seem as another thing on their to-do lists. Spending many hours on your chair is terrible for your health.

You have probably felt your butt numb and your hip tight after long hours of sitting. This tightness can reduce the level of mobility over time, thus affecting the movement and workout in general and you might need to lean forward just to walk.

By the time, you would experience certain back pain or set up for injury.

Some experts claim that sitting causes certain muscles in the hip to shorten and thus stay short.

However, there are some simple things that you can do to counter the negative effects of excessive sitting.

The first thing is to practice some exercise that can compensate the time that you spend sitting.

According to Kelly Starrett, author of Becoming a Supple Leopard and MobilityWOD.com points out that just 60-second stretching a day can provide the same benefits as you have devoted much time to exercise.

He motivates the athletes he works with to practice the pigeon stretch.

This type of stretching can open your hips, relieve the lower back pain and improve your performance of various exercises such as deadlifts or squats.

You can perform this type of stretch almost everywhere, by using a bench, table or desk in order to elevate your leg. These tools will help you perform it much easier and stretch the muscles from different angles.

First, place one of your leg on the table with bended knee at 90º angle. Lean forward and stay like that for 60-90 seconds. Yes. that easy and your numbness will be gone.
