What Exercises Should You Perform to Fix Your Posture?
When you disregard your posture, you open the door to persistent back discomfort. Crippling aches can be caused by rounding your low back while sitting for long periods in front of a computer, standing for hours hunched over, sleeping incorrectly, and lifting incorrectly.
Maintaining your low back’s natural lumbar curve is critical for avoiding posture-related back pain. You can alleviate your back pain by performing posture correction exercises.
Just getting up is an easy solution to sitting all day! It isn’t enough, though! Getting up from a seated position on a regular basis and performing some simple realignment exercises will help you retrain your muscles to avoid becoming locked in a slumped-over caveman stance.
Some of the exercises to perform for correcting postures are:
- Chin Tuck
The Chin Tuck can help correct forward-head posture by improving the neck muscles. You can perform this exercise while sitting or standing. Start by rolling your shoulders back and down. Place two fingers on your chin, gently tuck your chin and move your head back while looking straight ahead.
Hold for 3-5 seconds before letting go. Repeat ten times. The more of a double chin you make, the better the results will be.
- Wall Angel
Place your feet about four inches from the base of a flat wall with your back against it. Maintain a small bend in your knees throughout the exercise. The wall should be against your glutes, spine, and head.
Bring your arms up to your shoulders, elbows bent, upper arms parallel to the floor, and squeeze your shoulder blades together to form a letter W. Hold the position for a total of three seconds.
Next, lift your arms to create the letter “Y” by straightening your elbows. Avoid shrugging your shoulders to your ears. Perform it ten times. Do a total of 2-3 sets.
- Doorway Stretch
This exercise can help you loosen up those tense chest muscles!
As you stand in a doorway, lift your arms parallel to the floor and bend your elbow so that your fingers point toward the ceiling. Placing your hand on the doorjamb is a good idea.
For 8-10 seconds, slowly lean onto your lifted arm and press against the doorjamb. Release the pressure and then press your arm on the doorjamb for another 8-10 seconds; this time, coming into a slight lunge with your knees so that your chest moves forward past the doorjamb.
Repeat this stretch on each side two to three times.
- Hip Flexor Stretch
Put your left foot flat on the floor in front of you and kneel on your right knee with your toes down.
Press your hips forward with both hands on your left leg until you feel a good stretch in your hip flexors.
While keeping your chin parallel to the floor, tighten your abdominals and slightly tilt your pelvis back. Switch sides after 20-30 seconds of holding this stance.
