Exercise To Improve Your Posture

You can look 10 years younger and 10 pounds lighter if you stand and sit with good posture. Unfortunately, few people exhibit good posture. In fact, poor posture often develops so gradually you may not notice its symptoms such as back and neck pain and tightness and stiffness, before you notice your shoulders hunching over. Luckily, you CAN correct your posture by incorporating simple exercises and stretches into your workout program. Ideally, getting the help of a personal trainer is best for recommending specific exercises for you based upon your posture. Generally speaking, these are the exercises I recommend for improving posture. (Be mindful of any physical limitations you may have before performing these exercises.)

Side Raises (seated or standing)

3 sets of 10 reps

Seated rows
3 sets of 10 reps

Front pulldowns
3 sets of 10

Ab crunches
4 sets of 40 reps

The 10 years younger and 10 pounds lighter was a great insight; and it is true because when you have good posture, you just appear more relaxed, confident and suave. Good post, could use more content, but good nonetheless.
