So Apparently “Office Ass” Is A Real Thing, Is Probably Flattening Your Butt Right Now

TSMOfficeAss

I love my butt. It’s not that great or anything, I just like it because it’s mine and it probably looks the best that it will ever look at this very moment. That is, unless I take up a rigorous exercise routine in the near future, which isn’t very likely due to my busy schedule and general detest for squats. I figure an ass is an ass, and guys are usually pretty happy to see any butt action, even if it doesn’t look like it belongs to a Kardashian.

Apparently my job doesn’t like my butt, which is pretty ironic considering I work out of the office that basically invented the #buttstuff campaign. New York Post reports that “office ass” is a real condition, and it contributes to the gradual flattening of one’s ass. I guess we should’ve figured that sitting at a desk all day wasn’t good for our butts, but what else are we supposed to do? Get one of those stand-up desks like a fucking masochist?

Physical therapist Abby Bales suggests that working a desk job is pretty damaging to your glute muscles: “Sitting decreases blood flow and muscle mass, and puts the body in a poor postural position. The more you sit, the more you have the chance of developing a flatter booty.” She also recommends that if you are tied to a desk all day, you should stand up and walk around for at least five minutes every hour to increase your hip extension and flexion. I guess that gives me an excuse to bother my coworkers and hit up the snack palace break room more often. No complaints here.
