The 30-Second Stretch That Resets Your Desk Hunch

If you’re reading this while sitting down, how’s your posture? Are you looking a little hunchbacked? Spending multiple hours a day at your desk might not be the greatest thing for your posture—or your health.

Luckily, this quick exercise, called the “thoracic bridge,” takes less than a minute to learn and is the most effective way to increase your flexibility and circulation. You’ll give your back, shoulders, and hips a much-needed break after hours of screen time, and your much-improved posture will thank you later.

Watch the video below to learn how to get rid of your computer hunch and fix multiple posture issues once and for all.
