This month's introduction
Based on sound nutritional science, and packed with yummy goodness. Food just got more exciting
Over time lengthy hours spent sitting shortens your hip flexors, which can contribute to lower back soreness.
instant fix: kneel like you are about to propose to someone. Shift your pelvis forward, and tuck your bottom under until you feel a deeper stretch in the front of the kneeling hip. Hold for 30 seconds. Switch legs
long term fix: change position to standing at regular intervals to give your muscles a break and increase circulation (ideally every 20-30 minutes). Try using an app or setting a timer to remind you to get up and move over the day
Fit shorter ones in when you have time, or link two or more together for a bigger workout.
Beginner to Intermediate level.
