So today I went to the gym and worked out pretty hard, after that I usually go to the sauna to relax my muscles. In the sauna I hear a bunch of guys talk about how they heard that its not good to sit (especially for long periods) because it messes with your body’s functions or something to that effect and how alternatives to sitting are either standing up or getting into this almost primal like squat thats actually pretty grounded. He went on to explain that other people in certain parts of the world practice it and I tried it and the guy tried to push me over from the side and he couldn’t. There was also benefits to this squat like stance. Have any of you guys ever heard of this by any chance?
@zanelee, I know that when you sit too much, say as a demand for your job, truck or taxi drivers and office workers, you are highly likely to develop haemoroids, and by association some kind of cancer for that area of your body. Roids are a bastard of a thing to have, I have them myself, and a friend of mine, a truckie, had a real messed up case of it.
But roids are strongly linked to the temperature and solidity of the surface you are sitting, cold and hard surfaces increase your chances of roids, so keep that in mind (well not if you are quitting sitting)
