What does lounging on a sofa do?

Wondered if you'd come across this article on the Better Movement site - Certainly some food for thought:

The sound quality of this video is so bad it's unwatchable.

thanks - Todd's stuff is fantastic. As you say, food for thought, but I think in this video KStarr is not primarily about permanently tight psoas but about hyperextension in the lower back as a consequence of using the psoas for stability and posture.

I had no problem with the sound. Thanks for posting. I will continue with my stand up desk arrangement.
