We all know the pain of falling off a chair.
And while you might be thinking about trying to stand up, a recent study from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign found that many people can’t do so.
The study asked participants to perform 10 different leg exercises that included squats, push-ups, sit-ups and knee raises.
They also asked participants how many minutes of exercise they felt they would be able to perform during a 24-hour period, and how many hours they would spend doing each activity.
The study found that participants who spent at least 24 hours performing each exercise had greater than 50% more muscle activation than those who did not.
In other words, the more exercise you do, the less you’ll have to think about falling off the couch.
The research also found that the less time you spend doing exercise, the better your posture is.
Researchers also found the higher your activation levels, the longer you spent in the gym and the more calories you burn.
