1 Simple Exercise to Improve Posture


1 Simple Exercise to Improve Posture

Posture is something that we all struggle with. It seems impossible to fix with all the daily challenges of taking care of the kids, working on computers, and the hours we spend on our cell phones. There are wearable postural fixing apparatuses that say they can fix your posture, but they are really only crutches, allowing your postural muscles to weaken since the braces hold you in place. In the end, they will make your posture worse not better - unless you plan on wearing them every hour of every day for the rest of your life.

Others may choose to buy a $1,000 chair to help their posture, and yes, this can help reduce the strain gravity puts upon us, but in the end, our muscles are what hold our bodies upright. If we don't strengthen the particular muscles that hold our bodies upright, then we will never truly improve our posture.

There are a couple of things that cause our poor posture, such as hunching forward at a computer. Also, thrusting our hips forward and looking down at a smartphone while standing. Of course, there's always everyone's favorite - slouching while watching tv. All of these are a problem because as gravity bears down on us in these improper positions, it causes all sorts of neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pain, and disc herniations, as well as making us look like a hunch back with a turtle neck.

In this video, Craig Zuckerman shows one exercise that he had his clients use for years to help them with their posture. Many of his clients use the Hold-Ups exercise daily to change their body shape and relieve their pain. It's easy to do and only takes a minute, yet it can completely change the way you look and feel.
