Defeating the Evil Chair

First off, if you don’t know what MobilityWOD is or who Kelly Starrett is you need to do some homework. The dude is brilliant and the site is chalked full of useful information that anyone will find helpful. The more videos I watch on his site and the more I read on his site the more I learn about correcting mobility issues in athletes and the general population – and the more I realize I still have so much to learn.

That being said, the other day I was going back over some of Kelly’s work and found something from the early days that I thought would be useful for a lot of people. Since I think it’s safe to say that most everyone, I may go as far as saying everyone, needs some type of mobility work, his site should be a must read/watch. In today’s world where we sit behind a desk all day while working and then come home and relax in a chair while watching television we run into various mobility issues, especially in the hips.

Basically we sit WAY more than we think we do and are bodies aren’t seeing any benefits from it developing tight hips/short hip capsules. The ‘chair of death’ as Kelly likes to call it. You need to start to correct some of these mobility issues from sitting so much – enter Kelly. Watch, implement, and fix those mobility issues that I can almost guarantee you have. It’s something we can do while sitting so there really aren’t any excuses.
