SIT AND STAND UP TALL!
Compromised posture is a big issue now more than ever. We are hunched over at computers all day and constantly looking down at our mobile devices, This causes neck and shoulder pain along with roundness, which of course causes over stretching through the thoracic and lumbar spine along with tightening of the chest muscles.
We look hunched over and up to 10 pounds heavier!
To correct these issues you will need to:
1) Pay attention to posture. So often we sit with our head leaning forward and our shoulders rounded. Check in with yourself and make sure your shoulders are in line with your hips and your ears are in line with your shoulders.
2) Take frequent stretching breaks with chest openers and head rolls.
3) Perform the exercises below at least 3 times, preferably 5 times per week. Do 2-3 sets of 10 repetitions increasing the resistance as you get stronger.
You just magically lost 5-10 pounds just by reading this blog :-).
Here’s to good posture!
