Bad Posture? Try this

Updated: Oct 3, 2023

As technology becomes more and more dominant in today’s society, our posture becomes less and less ideal. Rounded shoulders, forward head carriage, large curve in upper back for several hours a day as we type, text, and stare at a screen is problematic. This is an exercise that can help!

Stand against a wall, so that your back, shoulder blades, elbows, and wrists are all touching the wall. Start with your arms like at a 90/90 position. Keeping your elbows and wrists on the wall, bring your arms up overhead until your hands meet. Then lower your arms down, pulling your elbows to your sides and SQUEEZING your shoulder blades together.

You should feel this exercise in between your shoulder blades, and it should feel good! We recommend doing 10-15 of these, 3x per day. Especially good to do them right before, during, and after you’ve been sitting for a while.

This exercise can also help with upper back tightness / stiffness, headaches, lack of mobility, and more! Remember motion is lotion and movement is medicine. No posture is “bad posture” unless we hold the same posture for hours and hours. Mix up your posture, so you can mix up what muscles you’re using.
