Sitting for long periods of time can tighten the body’s muscles. Poor posture probably isn’t helping, either. “Over the course of the days, weeks, and months that poor posture continues, your muscles begin to adapt and get tighter and shorter,” says Danielle Weis, PT, a physical therapist at Spring Forward Physical Therapy.
