When starting to workout it is always best to get advice on proper form and techniques to prevent injury. There are many ways to go about getting this information however seeking a personal trainer is a great start. Another way to get information is through videos that show proper form and a detailed explanation of how to do the exercise.

Most injuries that are associated with computer use involve the lower back, neck, and wrist. Some exercises that can help with both the lower back and neck is the plank exercise. This exercise helps strengthen the core muscles which are essential muscles that help with stabilization of the spine and hips. An exercise that can help with the wrist is weighted wrist extensions, using either a resistance band or weight. A personal trainer is a great way to get help learning these corrective exercises with proper form.
The human body is built to move, so when someone sits at a computer all day the core and leg muscles are not being used which results in atrophy of the muscles that are meant to support the spine and for motion such as walking. Also due to lack of these core muscles results in poor posture which eventually leads to lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, and excess weight gain.
The effects of sitting at a computer all day is that the body is not being used as it was built to be used. This means that the core muscles that help with posture and locomotion start to lose their strength (atrophy) which will eventually lead to aches and pains in the lower back, neck, etc.
