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.

Lucky Jo is much less medicated than her mother and sister, and she tends to think that’s a good thing. She's the newest full-time addition to the Grandex office, which is probably why they gave her the shittiest desk. In her free time she enjoys scaring small children, judging her peers, and condescendingly talking to GDIs at Starbucks. Follow her on twitter for cat memes and complaints.
