Just when all the warnings on the dangers of sitting too much had you thinking about a stand-up desk, researchers from the exercise and sport science program at Oregon State University have found that stand-up desks (and treadmill ones at that) only succeed in getting users to raise their light physical activity levels, while being both expensive and hard to accommodate in offices.

“They’re not going to be a replacement for getting the 150 minutes a week of moderate or vigorous activity that experts now recommend,” a researcher said.

Critics of the study still say that any activity is better than no activity.

Does that mean sitting all day long is okay? No way, the risks of sitting at a desk extend way beyond the conversation of caloric expenditure and activity level. Save your body, and your mind and get up and move for 10 minutes every hour at the minimum and use an adjustable stand-up desk.
