Is It More Difficult To Stand On Your Feet For One Hour Or Walk On Your Feet For One Hour?

1.     It’s actually more tiring to stand for one hour on your feet rather than walk for one hour!  Why?  Because with walking, the muscles are acting dynamically (constantly using several different muscles working together).  Standing in place for one hour causes a muscle group to fire for an extended period of time, eventually causing fatigue.  No wonder patients complain more about their feet hurting while working rather than during exercise!
