    Thought about it, but are the 150-200 buck stands worth it or can I just improvise with books/other things until I decide it's a worthwile investment, and for the anons that use standing desks, did you start out standing all day or slowly build up to it

      OP's a homosexual setup, trust me, you need a stand up desk ($200) on which you can rest your elbows (you can't stand like OP's pic for 8 hours, hands forward like this the shoulders are going to burn up) plus another desk which could be smaller ($100) so that you can put the screen at a safe distance from your eyes + a kitchen mat ($30) for your feet. Those are pre-covid prices so with 50% inflation it's probably going to cost $500 but it's worth it.

      Also don't stand up all day for 16 hours ever, only for 8 hours and stop if you are weak, you can injure your feet tendons if you are severely not used to stand up.

      Again OP's picture is so moronic, look at his wrists, stay in that position for 4 hours and he'll get instant tendonitis, what a fricking moron.

        Thats the crux for me, I already have a reminder to get up and walk 5-10 minutes every 60-90 minutes and walk about 90-120 minutes in total everyday counting my morning/afternoon walk so Idk how much more standing I need to do

      if i recall correctly it went something like this: the first week or two were mildly uncomfortable sometimes. i would take some sit breaks.
      after that i didn't really need them but it did not feel natural for several months.

    eh, I tried it for a couple of days but standing in one place for hours on end is not comfortable at all. maybe switching between standing and sitting like every 30 minutes would be ok but for that you'd need a proper adjustable standing desk

      This is me basically. I'll alternate pretty much any time I take a break and return to the desk or start feeling stiff. Admittedly I probably only stand 40% of the time because of this

          yeah oldschool mechanics have huge arms but now everything is electric including ratchets so the amount of muscle you use it much lower

        No trades/handymen are drug addicts and bad husbands/parents but usually at least carry cash. The ones who aren’t under this classification usually become supers/supervisors/foreman/shop owners etc and therefore are gray or white collar and not tradies…

        tell me why sitting is bad before applying the same information to standing
        hint: its because you're stuck in one position for a long period of time
        you need circulation and to move

          Its a lot easier to be "stuck" in the same position when youre seated compared to when youre standing

          Purely just by having a standing desk I find i move around way fricking move

          When i was just sitting all day I barely moved

    I don't know if I would be able to focus intently on my tasks while standing. Anyone who started using a standing desk care to comment on that aspect of it?

      Depends on the flow state you're in. I've played like 3 hour sessions of vidya while standing and didn't even notice it, but sometimes when I'm doing my real job and my mind is not in it I really theres no helping it. I don't think sitting makes things better in these cases either. I just want to lay down if anything.

      i have an actual standing desk. i can not recommend it enough. it REALLY helps with energy. whereas sitting down for hours on end you feel like a sick sloth and lose motivation. and getting away from the desk feels natural
      protip: all-nighters are easy peasy while standing. sleepiness literally just disappears and you feel energetic and normal. you get all the side effects from sleep deprivation like shit balance and slight delusion but not sleepiness itself

      >back pain from standing all day
      what? it strengthens your back muscles. sitting in a chair sure does frick your back

      >back pain
      for me it was foot pain (I was barefoot the whole time)

      it gets better, our foot muscles are cucked because of sedentary lifestyle and supporting shoes. shift around your weight a lot

      pretty much this

      Depends on the flow state you're in.

I don't think sitting makes things better in these cases either. I just want to lay down if anything.

      it's an overall benefit though. standing the majority of the day will be a net positive to energy levels to get shit done

    Got an actual standing desk (converted existing desk, but not the stupid thing in OP, the whole desk moves), a nice monitor arm setup, and a used 2 in 1 treadmill. Propped the treadmill up on a board for some incline and walk for 4 or 5 hours a day easily.

    Supposedly I'm burning about 400cal an hour doing this. I have successfully lost some weight with it. I WFH, and the work isn't hard, so mostly what I do is play games on the computer. I can easily ignore 2mph, though occasionally if I need to really concentrate I have to step off of it.

    Since it's a 2 in 1 treadmill, I can also run on it. Been doing C25k with a movie on. I'm a shit runner, so we'll see how it goes, but the treadmill is easily able to keep up with me.

    I did have just a standing desk at the old office, and it felt dumb to just be standing there. Treadmill is much better.

    I have a rising desk but I rarely use it these days. I should get back into it but I find I work best sitting down and I’m lazy as frick in my office. I used to use it after I lifted during lunchtime but I just sort of forget it’s an option.

    >500 calories a day
    Standing burns something like 9 kcal/h more than sitting, not even close to 500
