Nothing screams “old and weak” as someone hunched over like Quasimodo!
Good posture will relieve pain, make you look younger and free energy. Why? Because when you sit or stand with an upright spine, you can breathe better. Your lungs can inflate and deflate to their normal capacity providing your brain and entire body with oxygen. You tap into your parasympathetic nervous system (the rest, digest and procreate nervous system) which is where you want to live to be healthy!
As a personal trainer, I look at corrective exercise training around posture as a two step process:
In this little video I introduce 5 exercises to help improve your posture:
After these 5 exercises are completed, you should feel more neutral in your posture. More is needed to strengthen the back muscles, but this is a great place to start, and you can also use these exercises are a warm up to a back day strength training routine.
Let me know if you have any questions!
