Quick Tip: When was your last Deskinetics check-in?

We're always excited about Deskinetics — a system to help combat the repetitive stress disorders so common for desk workers.

Quick Tip: Will you fight deskworker syndrome today?

For a long time, we've offered bodywork and quick tips to prevent these harmful patterns — and to treat them when they occur.

Quick Tip: Why We Love the Posterior Kinetic Chain Exercise

Quick Tip: Posterior Kinetic Chain Exercise @ Planet Granite

This week we bring you another Quick Tip that was filmed at Planet Granite and it is part two of three that aims to give rock climbers (although these are good for everyone, especially deskworkers,) a few exercises to improve your performance.

This exercise helps your upper back stay toned and ready to combat...
