Do you slouch in your office chair at work? Are you starting to notice rounded shoulders with your neck protruding forward? Do you stand up at 5 P.M. and feel like your back resembles a question mark? If you answered “Yes” to these questions, you are part of a growing trend of people who experience postural problems from our culture’s constant state of sitting.
Slouching throughout the day forces chest muscles to tighten, which in turn pulls the spine forward and rotates the shoulders inward, all while weakening the muscles of the upper back that aid in posture. In other words, you start looking like a hunchback and may experience pain in your neck, lower back, and even arms and legs.
Not only can poor posture have negative effects on your physique (increased belly fat, double chin and varicose veins), it can also have serious implications on your health (heart strain, pinched nerves). Plus, if you’re a go-getter, posture is a must! In today’s culture, good posture communicates confidence, alertness and strength. All of these are key traits of success.
Follow a balanced exercise program like this workout video that incorporates corrective exercises for good posture. The good news is that Postural Kyphosis, the clinical term for this condition, is completely reversible. This corrective exercise workout can relieve chest tightness and strengthen your upper back muscles to help you look more like superman and less like a hunchback. Choose to work these exercises into your daily life a few times per week until your posture is improved. And of course before starting any exercise program, be sure to consult with your doctor.
