I wanted to share a quick video on a great whole body mobility exercise.
It’s an excellent exercise if you are sitting for a long period of time.
MUST DO Whole Body Mobility Exercise

This exercise loosens up your hips, your mid back, your shoulders and your neck. It doesn’t require any equipment and takes hardly any room. Do 3 to 5 repetitions on each side. This exercise is called the Lunge with a Back Reach.
I had Donnalee demonstrate.
Lunge with a Back Reach
Lunge forward, bring your arms up and reach back. Come back down, step back and lunge with the other leg. Take a big step, helping to loosen up that hip. Activate the glutes in order to stretch out the front of the hip again, and work on the front of the hip improving range of motion. You’re loosening up the mid back and loosening up your shoulders. Arch your head back in order to work on loosening up that mid back, which tends to be tight.
I recommend that you start off with 2 to 3 repetitions, then you can increase to 5 repetitions on each side, for a total of 10 repetitions. See if you feel looser in your hips, in your shoulders, in your mid back, and in your neck. These areas are typically tight and stiff in people that sit for long periods of time. Give that exercise a go!
