Once a day, for 7 days, I will be posting my favorite posture exercise/stretches. I hope you play along!
Day 4: Now that we’ve stretched out the right muscles, let’s start to strengthen the important ones. This is a great starting exercise for training the muscles in the back. Listen to the audio for more cues.
1. Lie face down with the arms in a T position. Make sure the hands are not higher than the shoulders or else you will over engage the neck.
2. Rotate the thumbs up towards the ceiling as you squeeze the area between the shoulder blades.
3. Relax the palms face down and repeat for 10 to 15 repetitions.
