What is Good Posture?
Posture is the position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while standing, sitting or laying down. Good posture involves training the body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on supporting muscles and ligaments.
Good Posture makes you look great, feel more energetic and project confidence. It also helps prevent injury and reduce pain. We all want good posture, but it can be so hard to achieve if you have poor posture. That’s because acquiring good posture involves not only learning new movements and positions but changing life-long habits as well.
How to Achieve a good Posture?
- Normal Joint Range of Motion. If you have stiff spinal joints they will need to be loosened to allow you achieve good posture alignment.
- Good Muscle Strength. Your muscle needs to be able to pull you into the correct posture.
- Excellent Muscle Endurance. Your muscles need to able to work for hours on end. Poor endurance is a major factor in habitual poor posture.
