"10 ways to work more ergonomically when travelling" and the first few tips frankly explain why we are in a world of obese, useless sub humans:
· Use a four-wheeled suitcase. It requires less force to move and you can push it through the airport by your side in a neutral wrist posture rather than having to reach behind your body and pull or drag a suitcase. Oh no my wrist is not in a neutral position, I will be damned to a life of athritis and hands that look like they have cerebal palsy.....
· Wear a laptop backpack (on both shoulders) or use a strap on the back of your laptop bag to slide it over the handles of your suitcase to minimize bending over and the stress on your neck and shoulders. God forbid I strengthen my core by having uneven weight loaded through my body......Suitcase deadlift, waiter walks anyone, oh no they may put more stress on one side of my body!
Always use the luggage rack in your hotel room to pack/unpack your luggage to minimize bending. Do not put open luggage on the floor. If a luggage rack isn’t available, use the bed or a chair or ottoman Please, if you can't bend over to get something out of a suitcase on a floor you don't deserve to be breathing the same oxygen that other humans do!
Long story short, be critical of why things are the way they are. Was this advice I was sent on email because the company is genuinely concerened about my ergonomic efficiency or beacuse their worried if the 125kg female who works in accounts bends over to pick something off a hotel floor whilst on a business trip slips a disc that they will be sued and be down one employee for 18 months!
Similarly is your training weights stalling because your 4 day split of supersets and trisets using a maximum tension method is not calibrated specifically or is that you are just been a pussy and not slapping more weight on the bar week after week. Man up and push your limits and who knows what you may achieve.
