Undo the Damage of Sitting

6 moves that strengthen the posterior chain

“The muscles that help you stand and extend—such as the spinal erectors, glutes, and mid traps—aren’t used when you’re sitting, so over time they weaken,” says Justin Jacobs, Tier X manager at Equinox St. James in London. The exercises below train the posterior chain, which houses the glutes, hamstrings, and lats. Strengthening this group of muscles can reverse the damage of sitting and promote better posture. 

Perform the workout below 2 to 3 times per week for best results.
