 Fit Tip 4

 Do you sit a lot at work? When that happens, we lose some of our ability to extend our legs behind and squeeze our glutes (butt muscles). A couple of times a day, stand up and hold onto a sturdy structure, like a non-rolling chair or shelf - something that won't move when you do. Stand up tall, stand on one leg, and take your other leg straight out behind you, squeezing the glutes. Hold for 5 seconds, and repeat for a total of 10 times. Repeat on the other leg. This will help to refocus your posture and reactivate your glutes and hip extension function.
