Got sedentary work? Here are the researchers' most effective exercises
Your body isn’t designed to sit still for a prolonged period of time. The concept of 'intelligent training' includes a series of exercises that help prevent injuries while improving your well-being when you’re doing sedentary work.
2-product training package
This page is divided into two parts:
- The videos provide detailed instructions on how to perform the exercises. It’s a good idea to watch them the first couple of times you’re about to do the exercises.
- You can also download the training posters. That way, the exercises are easier to remember once you become familiar with them in the videos.

The exercises can help prevent and alleviate problems with the neck, shoulders, back and more.
