This blog is all about creating better posture. We get asked all the time, “how can I improve my posture?” We have created some simple exercises/movements for you to perform at home that will help improve your posture. Not only will these help improve your posture, but you will also experience less tension throughout your shoulders, back, and neck.
Spend at least 2 minutes with each exercise. Perform these exercises daily and begin to take note on how these simple movements will improve your posture.
Equipment needed: foam roller, a pvc pipe or broom stick, and your body.
Let us know how it goes and create better posture today!
Lay on your side with arm out and foam roller placed right next to armpit area. Point your thumb up to pre-stretch the latissimus dorsi muscle. Movement during the technique is minimal.
Great for individuals who have rounded shoulders, work at a desk all day, throwing or any athletes, or those have need to improve their posture.
Keep core engaged at all times (think belly button to spine). The wider the grip the easier the movement. The closer your hands are, the more challenging it becomes.
One of our favorite stretches to loosen up tight rotator cuffs. Keep your arm at a 90 degree angle when performing this exercise. You’ll feel this in the back of the shoulders, traps, and even neck.
Here are simple movements you can try to increase range of motion in shoulder and upper back. Be mindful to breathe through each stretch.
