The Best Stretches To Do At Your Desk!


Most people have probably heard that you shouldn’t sit all day at your desk, but sometimes a 5 minute movement break every 20-50 minutes isn’t in the cards. A big project or a long meeting may make it tougher to get moving as much as you want to.


Dr. Rob has the solution for days when you just can’t seem to get moving!

Our Two Favourite Stretches:

Brugger Stretch

Start with your arms out to your sides and your thumbs pointed behind you. Stretch open your chest like you’re trying to touch your thumbs together. This is going to open up your chest opposite to how most of us sit every day.


Climbing the Ladder

Sitting in your chair with your palms facing forward, reach as high as you can with your right arm until you feel a stretch in your right side. Lower your right hand and then reach up with your left hand. Repeat a few times like you’re reaching to climb up a ladder. This is a great way to move your low back, mid back, and shoulders after sitting for a while.


These are just a few of the stretches you can do at your desk. If you’re interested in learning more tips and tricks on how to master working from home (or the office if you’re still there!)
