?The desk chair cogs is a more advanced version of the lying cogs exercise that I made a video on a couple of weeks ago (scroll through my previous IG TV videos) because it has fewer points of contact on the body and will therefore give less feedback for you to feel whether you’re doing it correctly or not. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ?Thought, the great benefit of this version is that you can do it at work! Several times a day if you want to or feel the need to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ?We are working on the same principles as before: 1. We want to improve range of motion over time in the joints doing work here, but keep away from pain and discomfort. 2. We want lead with the pelvis and keep the tilting moving in the same direction with the skull, and moving in the opposite direction with the ribcage. Can you see I’m doing this in the video? 3. We want to do this exercise with as little effort as we can, so try to stay soft. 4. Lastly; the main reason we would do an exercise like this is to get the body to experience movement through as full range of motion as we currently can in the joints working. Taking a few minutes “off” your, often, typical sitting posture can help the body to avoid becoming stagnant, some would say ‘stuck’, in any one position. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ?The body likes moving. Let me know how you feel after doing this exercise for 5 minutes? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [FT] #spinalhealth #spinehealth
