I just calculated the difference between standing and sitting at work for a woman 130lbs. I’m sharing this with you because I think there should be more standing work stations in offices!!!
Sitting for 8 hours: 496 calories
Standing for 8 hours: 560 calories
The difference in calories burned in one day is only 64 calories. However, multiply that out by 5 days a week and 52 weeks a year…you get 16640 calories – or 4.75 pounds!
How many women do you know that sit all day at the office/home and wonder why they gain a little weight each year…not to mention lower bone density in the hips and lower back issues due to weak gluts!!!
