3 Moves to Improve Posture

We have heard it from our parents since we were little kids, “Stand up straight!” Turns out, their advice was very smart for many reasons. Proper posture takes pressure off your lower back, helping keep you pain free. You look taller and slimmer when you stand up straight. You exude confidence and high self esteem because you look more sure of yourself and powerful.

Implement these few simple moves into your routine, and you’ll be sure to reap the rewards.

Perform the entire routine 3-5 times.

Opposite Arm/Leg Extension:

1. Come onto your hands and knees with wrists under shoulders and knees under hips. Extend right arm up to shoulder height and left leg up to hip height.
2. Engage core and glutes the entire time. Reach as far out as possible through the finger tips, keeping gaze toward the floor.
3. Hold 30 seconds each side.

T- Raise:

1. Hold a set of 3-5 pound dumbbells. Bend knees shift hips back and bring torso close to parallel with the floor.
2. Turn palms to face forward and lift weights up to shoulder height. Drop shoulder blades down as you lift arms up. Come back to center and repeat.
3. Perform 15 reps.

Overhead Squat:

1. Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-width. Bend knees, shift hips back and lower down so thighs are close to parallel with the ground.
2. Bring arms overhead with palms facing one another. Draw shoulders away from ears. Keep chest lifted and knees behind the toes.
3. Hold for 30 seconds- 1 minute.

    I think that everything posted was very reasonable.
    However, what about this? what if you wrote a catchier title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content is not solid., but what if you added
    a title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean 3
    Moves to Improve Posture – STUMBLING IN STILETTOS is kinda
    boring. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and note
    how they create article titles to grab people to open the links.

    You might add a video or a related picture or two to
    grab people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your
    blog a little livelier.

    I rarely write comments, however i did a few searching and wound up here 3 Moves to Improve Posture – STUMBLING IN STILETTOS.
    And I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not
    mind. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some of the comments look like they are left by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are writing on other online sites, I’d like
    to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list of
    the complete urls of your communal sites like your Facebook page,
    twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    That being said, it’s important wearers don’t get the impression that anti cellulite shorts will cure the problem; they are merely

    Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
    and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off
    topic but I had to share it with someone!
