☄️Why You Have Bad Posture☄️ — In today’s world of desk jobs, reality TV, Pokémon GO (kidding..kinda) and sedentary lifestyles in general it’s easy to see why posture issues are so prevalent. — BUT, i think we can also attribute a lot of posture issues in those who exercise to doing too much pressing (i.e chest) and not near enough rowing/vertical pulling (i.e back/lats). If the chest and front delts become over developed, the shoulders have to go somewhere — and if your back is lacking, there’s no where to go but forward and down. — Another underrated reason for bad posture is that a lot of us often times lack self confidence. Without that, it’s easy to slouch and try to shy away from any attention being brought to us. Trust me i get that, too. My blog about my battles with anxiety and depression from last week can attest to that. FYI It’s linked in my bio if you want to read it :). — To fix our posture issues it’s very important that we row at least 2x more than we press. How you get there is up to you, whether it be more reps/sets of one exercise or if you add other back accessory moves to get there doesn’t matter so long as the ratio stays 2:1 or a bit more. — Adding more direct shoulder work for the rear delts and lower traps can also play a big role in improving posture. Add more facepulls, rear delt flyes and rows to chest to help you get there. — A great time filler where you can work on posture as well is with shoulder “prehab” moves such as variations of T’s, W’s, Y’s or A’s. Prehab just means we are trying to take care of the problems before they require REHAB. Genius, i know, i didn’t coin the term, though. I’m not that clever. 🤦‍♂️ — It takes time to correct years of bad posture, so it won’t happen overnight. Having things around that constantly remind you to work on it can help a ton — even if it seems tacky! — If you’ve had success in correcting your posture, what has worked for you? Let me know, I’m always trying to add to my toolbox. 😎
