Posture improvement

One of the main areas that you can work is the body alignment. This is only possible if you identify the cause of the body posture. The muscles are the first suspects in the sense that they will have deviated from the norm. When they are imbalanced, they cannot keep the joints in place.

 Work to identify the weak from the strong muscles.

Hunching of the shoulders could be attributed to the tightness in the Pec muscles when the shoulders are pulled forward. Things can get worse when the tight Pec muscles are forced to work with the weak muscles at the back. Tension, discomfort will tend to arise due to the compensation mechanism of the overactive and underactive muscles.

The sway back is one of the problems which arise when the hips press forward and lie on the ribs. When this problem arises, you should carry out some strengthening exercises a way of posture improvement. In this case, carry out cocoon, hanging leg raise, ball pull in and the scissor kick. All these are intended to correct the deviation. There are also stretches for overactive muscles. In this case, you will carry out the runner’s stretch, stretching the hamstring, lying cross over and glutei stretch.

Lower-cross syndrome

People with lower-cross syndrome have a curve at the lower back while the pelvis is tilted in a forward position. If you have this problem, there are improvement measures to be carried out. For the overactive muscles, you will need   the pyramid stretch over the ball, hip flexor and the quadriceps stretch to name but a few.

As for the underactive muscles, the posture improvement is through pelvic tilting to the bridge, the single leg Glute Bridge, frog sit up among others. All these are strengthening exercises which will help improve on the back that is curved and correct the tilt   in the pelvis.

Rounded shoulders

Our shoulders are supposed to be straight. However, the problem may arise due to slouching, whereby the shoulders become rounded. You will notice anomaly when you notice that the shoulders are ahead of the ears.

The stretches that you are supposed to engage in include the deltoid stretches at the front, elbows stretch, chest stretch and the upper body stretches. On the other hand, you will need the strengthening exercises which revolve around the cable row, back fly and external shoulder rotation.

 The forward head

The other area of improvement is the forward head where the ears are located are at the front of the shoulders. The stretch exercises include the Myofascial release in the neck and the chin to the chest exercises.

As for the strengthening exercises, you will need the isometric exercises of the front neck.

Conclusion

Whilst there are many exercises which can be carried out posture improvement, the above are guaranteed to correct various posture problems.

Ways to improve posture Review

Have you always wanted to maintain an upright posture but have no idea what steps you should take? There are various ways of maintaining a healthy posture and which form the basis of this review.

Visualization

In order to improve your posture, you have to imagine or visualize a string emanating from above you. The string will be pulling you up. The string idea will help you have a sense of proper posture.

The giant X tape

The best way to retrain the back is to have an X taped at your back, running from one shoulder to the next. Another straight tape is put above the X.One is then required to wear this tape, each time adjusting the back. Every time you wear it, you will be able retrain your back, making the necessary adjustments relative to the X. For better results, you should have the inelastic tape and also change it daily.

Slouch walking correction

We all tend to slouch while walking, either knowingly or unknowingly. The best way to correct this posture is to imagine that you have a book placed on your head. Since you do not want it to topple, you would maintain the upright posture.  For those who do not know, slouch walking is whereby the back forms a curved appearance while standing. It is like someone has a hump forming at the back.

Colour for remembering

The color codes are used for different reasons. When it comes to ways to improve posture, the colour plays an important role. The trick is to think about a certain colour and at that time, check your posture. If for instance, you are slouching and you think about the green colour, you will immediately correct your position.

Pay attention to the calves

People ignore the calves at their own peril. The calves help us to find our balance. The first thing that you will need to do is to stay at ease and take a bounce in your strides. The idea is to remove the pressure that is imposed on the back, the neck and shoulders.

Sitting position

We are always reminded to sit up straight but did not know the significance of this. Those who sit for long hours on the desk tend to have posture problems. There are a number of ways in which   healthy posture can be retained. A good chair will help you take care of the back. The lumbar part of the back can be strengthened by additional support in the form of a pillow.

The back should always with that of the chair back support .The monitor on your desk should be positioned in such a way it prevents you from slouching.

The shoulder should be straight but relaxed and ensure that at the same time, the arms should be in flexed as opposed to straight. A 90 degree arm-rest would be ideal for the elbow support.

Lastly, you should consider standing breaks. They include standing, stretching and walking exercise in order to keep fit.
