It probably goes without saying that, in this industry, developers spend quite a bit of time seated. What you may not be so aware of, however, are the long-term effects on your joints, muscles, and connective tissue that come from all that sitting. Sadly, they're not good, but fear not! With some simple movements, performed on a regular basis, you can undo some of these negative effects. In this hands-on, interactive session, attendees will have the option to explore how to do just that by learning how to create a daily restorative practice based on research-backed mobility techniques and methodologies designed to restore normal joint function, range of motion, and healthy muscle and connective tissue quality. The best way to learn is to do, so wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to move, if willing and able!

Takeaway

Attendees will learn a series of movements that can promote healthy joint and tissue quality, strategies for creating short, daily routines that can be performed at home or at work with minimal time investment, and lastly, they will receive a list of "continuing education" resources to further their own development.

Intended Audience

This presentation is for everyone, no level of personal fitness or fitness education is required. Attendees with pre-existing joint or muscle related conditions may want to be cautious, as the information presented in this session is not intended to assess, diagnose, or treat any pre-existing joint or tissue conditions.
