However if you spend your whole day sitting in a chair at a computer, then training the same pattern, and in fact you are unable to move another way – essentially bending your back – then you are risking your hip health, and probably your performance too. Muscles fatigue even working at low levels if they are constantly ‘on’ and if they are working all day everyday because of how you move your performance will be affected.

Runners and triathlete you do not escape either, if you naturally hip hinge then you are blocking hip extension and your body will need to find somewhere else to power you along. Generally your calves or back muscles.
