Practice good posture in & out of the gym with these alignment tips.

24 Jul

Give yourself a standing ovation!

Good Posture – slumped shoulders and lethargic movements often times are signs of low self confidence.  Practice good posture in and out of the gym and you will feel more confident. Good posture and holding your body in perfect alignment during your workout will help protect your joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles. Generally speaking this posture can be followed as such:
-Stand shoulder width apart
-Feet parallel
-Knees slightly bent
-Slightly tucked pelvis
-Chest elevated (tits up)
-Shoulders gently pressed down away from the ears and drawn back behind you.
-Good punching wrist position.
-Jaw slightly opened
