Notes

  • You may be too busy to spend time doing these exercises. Check out Alignmed posture apparel, a great option for everyday life.
  • If you are working and taking breaks every 20-30 minutes, like in the pomodoro system it is a great idea to stand up from your desk and do some stretching and a posture exercise. This should keep your posture in balance. 
  • Try working with a stand up desk. Don’t stand all the time but alternate between sitting and standing to give your lower back some rest but also strengthen it at the same time by working standing up for part of your day. 
  • In the gym the Rope Face Pull exercise is great for your posture https://www.menshealth.com/fitness/a19544031/beginners-guide-to-face-pull/
