There is nothing hilarious about whacking your funny bone. In fact, the funny bone is not a bone. It is called that because of the funny – as in hard to describe – feeling you get when that part of the elbow is hit. What you are actually hitting is the ulnar nerve that runs from your neck to your hand. This nerve innervates muscles in the forearm and hand. The end of the nerve has two branches. The little finger and half the ring finger are innervated by these branches.

If your lifestyle involves a lot of sitting and you experience back pain in addition to all of that sitting it can compromise your quality of life. Have you ever considered that you may use that chair to help you gain strength and achieve an effieicent workout? If you use the different parts of the chair you have a sort of workout bench to facilitate your movements.
Chairs Aren’t Just For Sitting
- Tapping Your Toes – While facing the front of your chair, alternate elevating your knees and tap your toes on the seat of the chair. Increase the speed as you go and alternate your legs as you go.
- Squat Seats – Stand two steps away from the seat of your chair, facing away from the chair. Carefully squat on the seat by lowering your bottom to the seat, then jump back up and do it again!
- Chair plank – Place your forearms on the seat of the chair and get into plank position for 45 seconds.
- Calf Raise – Standing behind your chair, touch the back seat and rock your weight to your toes and then lower your hips. Begin a pattern of lowering your heels and then going back to your tiptoes.
