One of the easiest and most comfortable positions for people is sitting down in a chair or on the couch. It’s comfortable, you can relax, and just chill out… With our busy and hectic lives we all need some time to recharge our batteries.
My life is super busy and there a few times per day that I just need a break and want to sit down and rest my body and mind. Most of the time when we are sitting in this relaxed position we are not focusing on our posture. Does this sound like you?
What ends up happening is we let ourselves just go to a comfortable place.
Sounds good, right??
At times this can be good, but for most people poor posture leads to muscle imbalances, pain, and for some people injuries.
Over the past few weeks I have given you some great exercises for the lower back, but what about the upper back? Doesn’t it need some attention as well?
Today, I am going to show you an easy exercise to stretch the muscles on the side of your back. This exercise will help you sit up straight and pull your shoulders back, which is what we all aim to do.
All you’ll need for this is a foam roller and you’re set!!
By performing this stretch just a few times per week your flexibility and posture will improve greatly. If you have any questions don’t be shy I am here to help you!
Go have some fun with this exercise!
