Sitting for extended periods of time on a consistent basis, like at work or home (or both) could be the root cause of many running injuries that manifest themselves through running and any other fitness activities.
Abnormally tight hamstrings and hip flexors which don’t allow for the full range of motion required for an efficient stride (gait).
Weak abdominal muscles, caused by sitting, allow the pelvis to tilt forward while running and can result in lower back pain and hip flexor tendonitis.
According to Matt Fitzgerald in his book “Brain Training for Runners”, sitting causes major muscle imbalances whereby some muscles become extremely tight and others extremely weak.
