    Episode 110: Sitting is Not Bad for You

    Episode 110: Sitting is Not Bad for You

    Sitting is Not Bad for You
     
    – The MOVEMENT Movement with Steven Sashen Episode 110 with Turner Osler
     
    Turner Osler has the usual academic trauma surgeon back story: BA Neurobiology (Princeton), MD (Medical College of Virginia), surgical residency (Columbia, Harvard), fellowship (University of New Mexico) and then 20 years an academic trauma surgeon (University of Vermont) with over 300 peer reviewed papers and book chapters.  But then Turner went off scrip, got a masters in Biostatistics and an NIH grant and abandoned the operating room to study trauma epidemiology. 
     
    Somewhere in the last decade he became obsessed with the problems that come from sitting too much, and especially sitting passively.  Because no one else was doing it, Turner and some friends created a company to make active sitting chairs that were affordable enough that everyone could have one and attractive enough that everyone would want one. 
     
    Turner lives in Colchester with his wife, son and dogs (Bella and Suki) who have been surprisingly tolerant of his mania and are being gradually drawn into the madness.  Except the dogs.
     
    Listen to this episode of The MOVEMENT Movement with Turner Osler about how sitting doesn’t have to be bad for you.
     
    Here are some of the beneficial topics covered on this week’s show:
    Why sitting on bad chairs can cause all kinds of back pain. How moving while you’re sitting is one of the best things you can do. Why a chair should let you move in all directions and not pre-position your body. How making a chair unstable makes people continuously engage their body. How everyone already has the spinal reflexes so sit on balanced chair in an unbalanced way.

CG is a real branch ,

I love this podcast !

Steven is an enthusiastic, passionate and courteous host. All of his guests bring wonderful information and wisdom.
I have been wearing Xero shoes exclusively for one year. HFS and prio for running. Terraflex, daylite, Denver, and excursion to work. Sandals (Naboso, z-trail, Veracruz) for leisure in hot south Texas.
My feet feel awesome! No more plantar fasciitis!!! My feet are stronger and wider and my balance has improved!
It would be amazing if Steven could have Danny Dryer, founder of Chi-Running, on this podcast !
Living feet first !!!

Let the guests speak!

This podcast is good, but it would be much better if Stephen allowed his guests to finish their thoughts before jumping in and cutting them off to tell a story he’s told on the last 6 episodes.
