Alas, more and more people have sedentary jobs. Maybe this is due to ubiquitous computerization, there may be other reasons, but one way or another, working in offices in front of a monitor screen forces you to be in a sitting position for 6-8 hours or even more. Therefore, it is not surprising that the number of cases of prostatitis, osteochondrosis, hypertension, ischemia, obesity and so on is growing. To improve health and resist these ailments, you need to regularly perform a simple set of exercises in between work.
