I know what you may be thinking, what does fitness and hiking logos have to do with a blog regarding fitness related stuff. But you know what, while doing a search about some of the coolest graphic design Seattle has to offer for a project that I’m working on regarding the effect of sitting all day has on shortening hip flexor muscles, I found quite a few that caught my eye.
The reason why I started to focus on logo design Seattle companies was because A) it’s my home town, B) Seattle is known for their cutting edge when it comes to fitness, outdoor culture and also tech and design flair and finally C) REI is based outta Seattle. So, enough said.
But back to the project… Sitting for long periods of time has been proven to shorten hip flexors and also have a negative effect on your core muscles, posture and many other issues. There is plenty evidence that graphic designers, computer programers as well as people with office related jobs, tend to sit for longer periods of time than other professionals. Like 30% more!
I have been collecting data regarding the effectiveness that working out and other activities such as yoga, cross fit and other home related workouts such as P90X have in restoring those hip joints and muscles with proper moves and stretching for different lengths of time such as 4 weeks, 8 weeks and finally 12 weeks. We’ll see how those in each group respond to the protocols.
