If you’re feeling stiff from working at a desk all day, take just 60 seconds to reset your body with this quick routine.

Luckily, performing certain mobility exercises can help you to improve your posture, ease pain and stiffness, and prevent future injuries like throwing out your back.

Getting your mobility back doesn’t need to take long. In fact, you can do it in just one minute with the right exercises.

Take one minute out of your busy day to hack your mobility and reawaken your hips, spine, and shoulders with these exercises. Perform each of these exercises back-to-back whenever you’re feeling hunched and stiff, or if you know you have a long day of sitting ahead of you.
