Strong Posture Exercise
Strong Posture Exercises MUST address three elements of posture:
- How you BALANCE your body
- How You ALIGN the 4 PostureZones (Head-Torso-Pelvis-Lower extremity)
- How you MOVE your body
The 7 week program of StrongPosture® exercises from Stand Taller Live Longer are designed to build posture awareness while strengthening weak posture muscles and stretching muscles, ligaments, and other tissues that shorten with poor posture.
Stronger posture not only helps back and neck pain, but it also helps you feel better in general as you breathe deeper, reduce stress, and have more energy. Arranged in 3 exercise tracks (Balance, Alignment and Motion) StrongPosture® exercises help people stay active and combat health issues from degenerative joint disease to cardiovascular and respiratory problems.
Strong posture exercise gets results
People who regularly do StrongPosture® exercises report improvement with problems ranging from knee pain to headaches, and say they even feel, and sometimes look, taller and thinner.
Young or old, athlete or couch potato, maintaining StrongPosture® with daily posture exercise is an intelligent LifeHabit for aging well. These posture improvement exercises are based on contemporary biomechanical concepts blended with ancient yoga practices and wisdom.
The goal is to become conscious of your posture, and then strengthen your posture and balance with focused-motion exercises. Exercises can be done anywhere, and do not require any expensive equipment. A ﬂat wall is necessary as a reference for erect posture, and then we introduce inexpensive and fun tools like exercise balls.
To change your posture, you need to teach your body a new habit. “Straighten up and don’t slouch” doesn’t work. In order to change how you move, you need to ﬁrst become conscious of how you are moving, and then adopt new habits to purposefully train new patterns of motion, thereby training the body to move unconsciously in those new and corrected patterns of motion.
Improving your posture with daily posture exercises as part of your regular physical activity will help you keep moving well, avoid injury, stay active and improve appearance, attitude, energy levels, athletic performance and overall health.
