EP17 Get the F$*! up or die!

No, it’s NOT the name of the latest Action movie starring Steven Seagal or Jason Statham.  But, it probably could be!  We’re talking about a strategy that we can all use to SAVE OUR LIVES!  Literally, getting up to prevent the negative effects of sitting too much!

By nositting-risk-of-death1-598x535w, you’ve heard the links. Sitting too much can kill you!

Kid Squatting Properly
Can kids teach us proper techniques?

Today, Dave and Dan discuss the finer points of sitting and mortality and what you can do to help yourself prevent this from happening to you!

Interestingly, if you have young kids, as we both do, when you watch them sit, their first choice is NOT a chair, they drop their butts to the ground & squat like the picture to the right.  And their technique, balance & flexibility is pretty much perfect!

Maybe we should all get back in touch with that child-like part of ourselves?  Eh?

Enjoy the show!  Talk to you next week!
