Sitting is the new smoking

09.08.2022

Today, people sit at a desk for many hours.

 

This leads to shortening of the muscles, adhesions of the fasciae and ponied bad posture. Some try to compensate for this by training for an hour, but this is not possible. By nature, man was not born to sit!
The human locomotor system got its upright gait by walking barefoot a lot and having to adapt its foot to the common natural unevenness.
Thus the skeleton constantly adapts to the feet.

Today, it is the other way around due to constraints. Karl Müller explains some solutions to this in this interview with Corina Klein.
