Think about it: After working eight hours on a computer screen, your shoulders are rounded forward and your neck is protruding forward. Aside from having a desk job, you can get bad posture from working out incorrectly. Overdoing chest movements and not incorporating enough rear delt and back movements can increase poor posture.
Poor posture is our bodies way of adapting to the situations we subject it too.
Poor posture can lead to:
- Misalignment of your spinal vertebrae
- Nerve constriction or pinched discs
- Increased stressed level
- Increased risk of injuries
- Poor self-image
Not only will an improved posture showcase your physique a lot better, it will also boost your confidence. These six tricks will get you on your way.
