Exercising to improve your posture will relieve stress on organs with more efficient blood flow, improved digestion, breathing and heart function as well as helping you to avoid damage to joints, bones and muscles. The icing on the cake? According to studies, you’re likely to notice a more positive mood and higher self-esteem as you stand tall and easy!
To give you an example – if your daily routine is to sit for long hours, your glutes become weak. Their primary role is of hip stabilisation and extension. But by sitting all day your hip flexors become short and tight, limiting your range of motion. Weak glutes are a real problem when it comes to stability and powerful hip extension. This will certainly affect your lifts at the gym.
The following exercises are all designed to improve your posture using nothing but your own body weight, so you can do them anywhere, anytime.
