Three workouts for better posture

Exercise and workouts are essential to maintain a healthy mind and body and can improve your posture dramatically. While practicing a correct posture, your body will automatically get alignment. It can help to alleviate some common issues, such as neck pain, back pain, fatigue, and headaches. Good body posture (sitting or standing tall) will also increase your self-confidence. Easy exercises for good posture are:

  1. Pull Backs: Keep your chest out while you hold both arms out and parallel to the ground; gradually pull the arms back while rotating arms. Slowly release and repeat 10 times.
  2. T's W's & Y's: Raise your feet and also upper body off the ground while you shoot your hands out sideways into the T, W and Y positions. Repeat 10 times. (T is out to the sides, W is arms raised to shoulder height and Y is arms above the head).
  3. Back Fly: Stand erect and keep both arms out shoulder high and parallel to the ground. Now draw arms straight back then out to the side and back again. Repeat these 3 movements 10 times.

Strength and Toning Workout for Better Posture

These workouts are predominately concentrated on reinforcing the muscles of the upper back, particularly the trapezius, the rhomboids, as well as the back deltoids. You have to do each for 45-second energetic periods, with 15 seconds transition time in between.

Exactly how often can you do these workouts?

Start off by doing these exercises three times a week. This makes an excellent addition to your exercise routine to work your upper arm and shoulder muscles, provides extra cardio as well. If you're feeling really sore the following day, do it 2-3 times a week for 2 or 3 weeks. Gradually work up to being able to do the exercises 5 times a week.
