Everyone says you should have good posture, but do you know why? Lots of reasons! In short, good posture helps you look better, feel better, and breathe better.
Learning good posture is very do-able. It takes a few minutes to learn, and consistent practice.
Here is a quick throwback to the Exercise Minute with Erika Lopez at KVUE, where we go over 3 exercises that can help you improve posture. The exercises are listed below the video, which explains them in about a minute.
- Band pullaparts, a common movement many lifters do to prepare before working out
- Breaststroke, a Pilates inspired movement
- Dumbbell row, a classic lift
If you try any of these exercises, let me know how it goes!
