hey it’s no surprise that’s standing a little bit more is better for you than sitting down all right now I’m never one to conform to just very basic broad health topics I go deep I go out there I try to make it down so you actually know what’s truly happening in your body so today I want to give you the knowledge that you can use to really understand why you’re gonna burn more fat and why you’re gonna ultimately look and feel better if you just stand up every now and then hey if you haven’t already make sure you subscribe to my channel new videos every Tuesday Friday and Sunday at 7 a.m. Pacific time plus a load of bonus videos and live broadcasting QAS and if you haven’t already you got to turn on that little bell so you get notifications whenever I go live or post a new video all right so again no blanket health topic here we’re talking about some weird kind of science that’s gonna make you say wow when it comes down to standing up every now and then alright so the first thing we want to look at is yes we do know that most people say you should be standing 80% of the time and sitting 20% of the time I don’t know who came up with that number but it seems like it’s totally out of right field and it’s totally random so I don’t necessarily think that’s the way but you do need to understand is the cellular systems and processes and what is metabolically active in your body so the biggest issue that we’re facing whenever it comes down to sitting for too long is we are deactivating a very specific enzyme known as lipoprotein lipase LPL so what ends up happening is when we’re sitting down we’re not triggering this enzyme to release fat from our adipose tissue the way that fat-burning works in sort of a nutshell is lipoprotein lipase triggers the release of fats from our storage form into our bloodstream once they’re in our bloodstream then they get acted upon by another enzyme known as hormone sensitive lipase then and only then does what is called lipolysis fat burning actually occur so if we are lacking lipoprotein lipase the enzyme that actually allows the fat to get back into the bloodstream we’re never mobilizing fat to actually burn so sure calories in calories out if you’re sitting down you’re not burning many calories yeah we know that but you’re actually forgetting the biggest part you’re not activating the enzyme that turns on fat-burning so here’s where things get really really cool did you know that within 90 seconds of standing up you are activating metabolic pathways every single cell that is in your skeletal system your muscular system and of course all other kind of cellular function is activated when you’re sitting down it’s not activated you’re just kind of operating at the bare minimum but within 90 seconds of standing your muscle cells activate and these are the things that burn up triglycerides and mobilize them but also what regulates and activates the utilization of glucose and regulates your blood sugar so without this process occurring you’re in this sort of dormant state but what a lot of people don’t realize is that it happens in just 90 seconds you stand up within 90 seconds you’re activating those enzymes and you’re activating those cells well not only that but this whole thing is responsible for getting fuel to your cells so if you’re not mobilizing your cells are essentially starving they’re not getting the nutrients they’re not getting what they need to function properly and give you the right kind of energy so we need to sort of flip the paradigm a little bit right now we’re thinking being active a little bit less and sitting down a majority of the day what do you need to flip that on its head and be standing a little bit more and sitting a little bit less blanket statement I know and I’m not telling you need to be standing up all day when you’re at the office I’m telling you that you need to stand up for a minimum of 90 seconds and try to just do little intervals throughout the day because it makes a tremendous difference so the Journal of Occupational Environmental Medicine found that literally standing up just every 20 minutes or so burns an additional 170 calories per day that adds up to almost a thousand calories per week and when you look at it like that that’s almost 1/3 a pound of fat per week so in three weeks you’re gonna burn a pound of fat just by getting up and standing every 20 minutes and standing for a little bit and activating that lipoprotein lipase and activating the other metabolic pathways within your body see it’s less about just standing because it’s good for you and it’s more about getting your body to flip that switch so that you can turn on the fat-burning but now let’s look at back pain and let’s look at it in a whole different way you go to your personal trainer you go to your physical therapist they’re gonna tell you you need to do these stretches you need to move this way to get your back loosened up well what we forget is that the back is biologically active it’s metabolically active just like muscle tissue we have disks in our back they are designed to have a massive amount of blood flow we should be moving our back extension flexion that gets the blood to those discs when we get the blood to the discs the discs get the nutrients and therefore they loosen up and they stay limber and they stay flexible just like a muscle would so it’s less about moving and more again about enzymes about metabolic pathways and about cellular activity we have to think at the cellular level and stop thinking and even the orthopedic level when it comes down to our back injuries so again the Journal of occupational and environmental medicine found that just standing up every 20 minutes or so dramatically improved back pain but also increased your blood flow dramatically to the back which means you’re gonna reduce the risk of injury and later on when you’re working out you ever noticed that after you’ve been sitting down for a long time two days later it’s easier to get an injury well again it all has to do with blood flow and nutrient delivery but I don’t want to stop here I don’t want to stop at just fat burning and back pain what about mood you see whenever you are using your brain in an intense way you’re activating usually one specific portion of your brain predominantly now what happens when you stand up well of course you have an increase in blood flow which means an increase in red blood cells that are going to that already active portion of your brain so if you’re sitting down and you’re focusing on writing a blog and then you stand up and you’re still working on that blog you will likely see a 15 to 20 percent increase in your cognitive focus and alertness at that very given point in time just by the extra red blood cells going to that given portion of your brain so without changing your train of thought just stand up and keep working on what you’re working on and it’s pretty remarkable so the International Journal of behavioral nutrition actually found in multiple studies that by standing up again every 20 to 30 minutes subjects were able to improve their alertness improve their overall cognitive function and even their short-term memory so now we have sort of a triple whammy we activate lipoprotein lipase we improve our mood and of course we make it so we don’t throw out our back in the gym the next day honestly just by standing out every 20 minutes for a minimum of 90 seconds so don’t get in that rut I know that you have more attention to detail and focus than just get up move around and don’t fall victim to general boredom of health topics find it exciting and find the enzymes and how they’re activated exciting that you can burn fat and look the way that you want to as always I will see you in the next video and make sure you comment below and let me know what you want to see next see you soon

Standing Desks: Why I’ve Used one for 8 Years- Thomas DeLauer… Hey, it’s no surprise that standing a little bit more is better for you than sitting down. Alright? Now I’m never one to conform to just very basic broad health topics. I go deep. I go out there. I try to bake it down so that you actually know what’s truly happening in your body so today, I want to give you the knowledge that you can use to really understand why you’re going to burn more fat and why you’re going to ultimately look and feel better if you just stand up every now and then.

All right, so again, no blanket health topic here. We’re talking about some weird kind of science that’s going to make you say wow when it comes down to standing up every now and then. All right, so the first thing we want to look at is yes, we do know that most people say you should be standing 80% of the time and sitting 20% of the time. I don’t know who came up with that number but it seems like it’s totally out of right field and it’s totally random. So I don’t necessarily think that’s the way, but what you do need to understand is the cellular systems and processes and what is metabolically within your body.

So the biggest issue that we’re facing, whenever it comes down to sitting for too long, is we are deactivating a very specific enzyme known as lipoprotein lipase, LPL. So what ends up happening, is when we’re sitting down, we’re not triggering this enzyme to release fat from our adipose tissue. The way that fat burning works in sort of a nutshell is lipoprotein lipase triggers the release of fats from our storage form into our bloodstream. Once they’re in our bloodstream, then they get acted upon by another enzyme known as hormone-sensitive lipase. Then and only then does what is called lipolysis, fat burning, actually occur. So if we are lacking lipoprotein lipase, the enzyme that actually allows the fat to get back into the bloodstream, we’re never mobilizing fat to actually burn.

So sure, calories in, calories out. If you’re sitting down, you’re not burning many calories. Yeah, we know that, but you’re actually forgetting the biggest part. You’re not activating the enzyme that turns on fat burning.

So, here’s where things get really, really cool. Did you know that within 90 seconds of standing up, you are activating metabolic pathways. Every single cell that is in your skeletal system, your muscular system, and of course all other kind of cellular function is activated. When you’re sitting down, it’s not activated. You’re just kind of operating at the bare minimum, but within 90 seconds of standing, your muscle cells activate, and these are the things that burn up triglycerides and mobilize them, but also what regulates and activates the utilization of glucose and regulates your blood sugar.

So without this process occurring, you’re in this sort of dormant state, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that it happens in just 90 seconds. You stand up, within 90 seconds, you’re activating those enzymes and you’re activating those cells.
