They say prolonged bouts of sitting down is really bad for your body mechanically, as your core switches off, the back takes the strain, your posture slumps and you lose range of motion in your hips. And I can vouch for the rehabilitation and mobilisation needed to get my body properly functional when I decided to take training seriously. Especially when it came to squats, deadlifts, lunges and the the like. Now, the reality is that you will need to do a bunch of corrective exercises, mobility drills, stretches and posture adjustments through time to undo the damage of chronic poor posture sitting. If you could commit to 4mins of this stretch a day, say just before you go to bed, you will be doing your hips, legs, core and back a massive favour. It will be that small daily commitment that will make the other priming and mobility work that more productive, which in turn will help with stronger and more functional lifting in the gym. Your body is screaming out to be functional and express itself in full range of motion. After a few days, you will begin to enjoy this parasympathetic stretch, where you feel good for doing something good, and you slow things down as you focus sorely on opening up your joints and lengthening your muscles. Your body will thank you!

But its best feature is the Bump-and-Go steering. Instead of using a remote control this car runs on its own. If it hits a wall or other obstruction it turns itself around and speeds off in another direction. It's the perfect active entertainment for any toddler.

J Gaddour. The stretch opens up your hips capsule and reinforces proper lunging mechanics, he says. And since the band creates a ton of extra resistance you have to fight against, the move will get your blood flowing, too. Or you can hold the stretch.
