Can’t make the gym? Build core strength from your liv­ing room with one pri­mal move

It’s hardly news that sit­ting for too much of your life is bad for your long-term health, yet few peo­ple are aware that a largely seden­tary ex­is­tence can cause far more im­me­di­ate prob­lems. Take the painful, rounded back that’s been keep­ing you off work, or the weak glutes that have seen your dead­lifts plateau. But this dy­namic ex­er­cise, which cen­tres on mo­bil­is­ing creaky joints, will help you fix the dam­age from the com­fort of your liv­ing room.

“The Scor­pion is ex­cel­lent for stretch­ing out your whole body,” says Kemo Mar­riott, founder of the Broth­er­hood Train­ing Club. “You’ll ex­tend your shoul­ders, spine and hips, which is the per­fect an­ti­dote to sit­ting down all day.” Plus, the con­trol needed to ex­e­cute the move will build to­tal-body strength, while the fo­cus on co­or­di­na­tion will boost pro­pri­o­cep­tion, mak­ing your lifts more ef­fi­cient.

Work five min­utes of this pin­cer ex­er­cise into your daily sched­ule and you’ll be able to take the venom out of your chair’s per­ils within a month. Though you might need to move the cof­fee ta­ble first.
