AVOID IMPROPER BENDING AFTER SITTING FOR 20 MINS
The muscles, discs, and ligaments of the spine adapt to sustained positions. For example, after 20 minutes of sitting, the soft tissues of your body retain the flexed (bent), seated position. So, if you were to flex your spine, which is the incorrect way to bend after sitting for 20 minutes, you would put your spine at risk for injury. This concept is called “spinal memory.” Similarly to lying down for 2-3 hours, I do not recommend improperly flexing (bending) your spine for 30 minutes after you’ve sat for at least 20 minutes. Give the spine time to “forget” the previously adapted position. If you must bend your back within that 30 minute time period, squat or use a hip rotation.
