Exercise Balls To The Wall!Posted on: May 30th, 2014 by Stag
I have been a bit of a PC Video Game enthusiast for years now. Of course taking the inevitable breaks here and there and for varying amounts of time but I always find myself coming back to it. I don’t think that I will ever be too old – at least mentally; to play a video game now and again. Now anyone that has played on a PC knows that your set up is very important. Unlike your console games where you can play from your couch with a controller, you need to be sitting in your office chair and using your keyboard and mouse. Now I am not as young and resilient as I once was. So having a good set up is very important. Back problems are no laughing matter.
I used to use your standard office chair. That proved to be very uncomfortable and so I upgrade to a quite expensive full support high-end chair. Even that did not help with those binge weekends; sitting for hours on end. Though eventually I came across something that did; an exercise ball. Surprisingly it was very comfy to sit on and was great for my back. Gave me full range in motion and I would like to think – made me better at the game.
Wreaking havoc in an online game while sitting on an exercise ball is more satisfying than it should be. And definitely works far better than I ever imagined. I certainly recommend it!
