hi liquidpoker,

I currently have a Ergohuman but its shit and my neck hurts, I think its asian size and its too small, its the worst chair that I ever had,
it pulls my lower back AND my neck forward like its made for those MIB coffee worms, ridic

I'm more inclined to buy the Herman Miller Embody but I haven't done any research about treadmill desk, so I'm here asking you to do the research for me :D

treadmill desk looks like another hipster crap like those dorks that sit in a yoga ball,
is that correct or is legit ?

Herman Miller embody costs about 1.6k USD here
I dont know how much a treadmill desk costs

which one should I buy ?

I have a ton of health issues from using the computer incorrectly, starcraft, poker, lying in bed with my neck contoured in tons of stupid fucking ways.

This book makes the case for the standing desk, in fact it is a comprehensive system for harm reduction while using the computer. The main argument for the standing desk is that it encourages you to break into mini exercises and movement while you're using it. I won't summarize the whole book but I really recommend it.

I'm currently on day 2 of using a standing desk and yeah it's pretty brutal. It's addicting to slump into a chair and forget about your body and just be in the computer, but as you are now experiencing doing that past your early 20's isn't sustainable. What I'm finding is that since I've taken away option of sitting, I'm pushing through the standing because i'm such a computer junkie I'll put up with a lot of discomfort to continue using the computer.

as far as a treadmill desk goes I would be wary. if you have spent a ton of time sitting it's like your walking mechanics are kind of fucked up, so you could be encouraging yourself to repetitively engage in an unhealthy pattern.

Treadmill desk seems silly though. Just go into nature and have a walk.

Herman Miller chairs are worth it for people playing like 1k NL+ or equivalent in whatever. Online poker is kind of the sweet spot for baller chairs. The chair is such a small % of your bankroll and you are forced to sit at the computer a lot. Going on tilt and buying a Herman Miller is such a classic play.

That doesn't mean it's the right play though.

Get off of your computer and/or sit on the floor and/or go for more walks in nature. That is my final answer.

I cant play poker in the nature
I spend 8h+ on poker +2h+ on porn, all sitting

standing up desk seems shit, my shoulder gets pain when I stand for long

As you are into solely worldly pursuits and you run your own small business treat it as a business decision. I am not the CEO of your company. I am just a pretty shitty chair consultant with a beat up chair from IKEA.

Would you like to do anything about your pornography addiction? I may be able to help in that area.

You'd probably have shoulder pain with the treadmills too then right? Maybe I don't understand nature of your pain. I had Herman Miller at my last tech job and it was the shit. If you wait for the tech bubble to burst you can probably get one cheap haha

If you have been sitting at your computer for 10 hours a day for quite a while then you're probably in pretty bad shape. Treadmill desks are more demanding than they look like (especially on the joints) and there's no option for you to sit and rest. The solution is to buy a desk riser instead. I posted mine in a thread on here a while ago. It's effortless to switch from standing to sitting. You should also get a standing desk mat, or else your feet will hurt.

For every complex problem there is an answer that is clear, simple, and wrong. (Mencken)Last edit: 05/09/2018 04:34

had a standing desk, not that good for me, very hard to work with it tbh. Getting a simple training rubbers and stretching/doing some exercise even 15 minutes every 3h is way better.

I have embody, would deff recommend it.
