It goes without saying how important posture is. A strong spine is essential to healthy aging, and good posture sends a message of confidence. It’s easy to fall into bad habits with the amount of sitting we do at our desk, in our car, and in front of the TV screen – but there are multiple exercises that can help strengthen the back muscles and reverse bad habits. I teamed up with my trainer, Chase Weber (aka @chasefitness), to show you 3 moves you can practice at home – watch the video HERE.
3 Exercises For Better Posture:
What you’ll need: Resistance band
- Band Pull Backs: Keep your chest out while you keep both arms parallel to the ground, slowly pull the band back while alternating arms between the W and T position. Slowly release and repeat 3 sets of 10.
- Band Back Fly: Keep both arms parallel to the ground and pull your arms straight back then out to the side and back. Repeat 3 sets of 30.
- T’s W’s & Y’s: Raise your feet and torso off the ground while you shoot your hands out to the sides into the T, W and Y positions. Repeat 10 times.
