We’re going to talk about the four steps to improve your standing posture.
This is part of our core four posture system, a complete online course that teaches you all the different steps to completely improve your posture. today we’re going to be talking about standing posture. And the reason why is because a lot of times we’ve kind of made this shift as far as how we deal with our spine.
Right. We’ve realized that sitting is a problem. So we spend a lot of time standing our standing posture. Isn’t right. Then we’re going to still have pain and discomfort and problems with our health, even though I’m okay. We’re standing instead of sitting. And so the last thing I want is for you to have to deal with more pain.
So let’s talk about standing posture, how we’re going to handle it, listen, and what to do move forward. So here are the steps first. Do you want to think about your feet? ideally you want to keep your feet right planted to the ground about shoulder width apart. So any leg crossing or leaning over to the side or something you really want to try to not do that.
You want your feet planted to the ground. Think about your rear. You want to tighten your, your core starting at the top. and so just keeping those. Those gluteal muscles tight. It’s going to be really important. And then I want you to think about the shoulders. We’re just working our way up from the feet to the muscles in your rear, to the shoulders.
The thing you want to think about is locking your shoulders. That helps to create more stability and the upper back, and it helps with pulling the head back. And so what we do to lock the shoulders as we slightly bring the shoulders or blades back, and we’ve pushed them down just a little bit. Yeah. And that locks, the shoulders creates lots of stability in the mid back.
And the last thing we’re going to do is for the head and what you do is you pretend someone’s attached a string to the top of your head and they pulled up and as they pull up on that string, that corrects the head position, because most of us have this issue. We’re head has gone forward. Pretty significantly forward.
You combine that with the shoulders rounding forward, that creates a lot of problems. And does that happen? The pelvis tilts underneath you, and it’s just a really unhealthy situation. So plant the feet, shoulder width apart, or even not much wider than shoulder width, you want to tighten up your gluteal muscles.
You lock those shoulders, you pull that string up on the head and that correct your standing posture position. And if you combine that with the exercises and things that we’ve given you before, or that’s part of the core four posture system, you’ll be able to train your body to hold that position for forever.
So don’t forget FEET, BUTT SHOULDERS, HEAD, think about those things as you’re training your posture and you’ll feel better. This will help your standing posture position. Completely strengthen and train the muscles of the entire body to help hold your posture without you having to think about it.
