Did you know? Standing for just 3 hours each day burns an additional thirty thousand calories per annum, according to a study conducted by Dr. John Buckley and researchers at the University of Chester (BBC). That’s the equivalent of running 10 marathons per year, and shedding 8lbs of fat. That’s a whole pant size lost just by standing.
According to research done at The Cornell University Department of Ergonomics “up to 90% more pressure is applied on your lower back when sitting vs. standing.” That means you can significantly reduce lower back pain simply by periodically standing throughout the day. (Wall Street Journal)
