    Hahah, a 'butt hurt' thread with a different meaning!

    Been talking about numb-butt at work lately.

    I write software, and except for the rare meetings, occasional bathroom breaks and walks down to the cafeteria for lunch, I sit all day long.

    A cancer survivor turned hardcore triathlete friend of mine recommended an exercise ball for a chair.

    It's been just over an hour now, my butt is no longer numb, and either I am discovering my first hernia or I'm already feeling the impact on my abdomen/core.

    Wow. $20-$30 at any sporting goods store, and I'm comfortable, more awake after lunch, and feeling the burn!

    I hope for real you are not feeling your first hernia because I just had hernia surgery last year and it was not fun at all.

    I wasn't trying to make light of hernias... I am definitely feeling the abdominal exercise resulting from holding myself up and not relying on a backrest.

    My back muscles should be sore tomorrow too.. But I have back pain problems and strengthening my back is most likely a very good thing (no prior surgeries, just fat).

    Sounds rough. I have to sit a lot some days but its usually in a busted car seat frequented by getting up and down with lots of extra weight on my body. :).

    Exactly why I would love a job where I get to sit :)

    This is the easiest exercise I've ever done. Sure, others are more enjoyable, but I'm at work, so anything I can do without thinking about it is bonus!

    Very cool. What makes you think you might have a hernia?

    It was something of a subtle joke: the exercise my abdominal muscles were getting had an immediate impact that I could feel.

    You took the subtle joke too seriously.

    However, I'm sitting on it again today, and took a moment to sit in my old chair to add a bit more air to the ball, and the chair immediately was uncomfortable.

    World of difference..
