Modern upholstered seating furniture is the most common cause of adverse musculoskeletal changes because it forces an extremely bad sitting posture. It makes it impossible to sit on them without rolling the pelvis fully backward. Therefore, sitting for a significant amount of time on modern sitting furniture will result in adverse musculoskeletal changes.

1) If the abdominal muscles and the abdominal fat tissue compressed by the upper body (the part of the body above the abdomen), then the fat tissue and muscles in the abdomen are affected with excessive mechanical stimulation.

2) Excessive mechanical stimulation causes (subclinical) low-grade inflammation.

3) Low-grade inflammation of Fat mass causes fat mass hypertrophy (weight gain of the fat mass).

Note: This is one of many images published in the book; "Mechanical Stimulation Low-Grade Inflammation Weight Gain: Muscles Upward Lifting Activity Weight Loss". (Click here to preview the book!)

When rolling the pelvis fully backward in a sitting position, the size of the abdominal cavity decreases. At the same time, the abdominal muscles and fat tissues are affected by excessive mechanical stimulation.

The process of fat mass gain goes along with fat mass inflammation (low-grade inflammation).
