Health and Fitness Beaufort: Quick Postural Reset
“Hey EarthFITters! This is Coach Sam here. Today I’m going to go over a postural reset that is great for the upper back and neck area. So if you have tightness in either one of those areas, this exercise I’m going to show you is going to help you out there and this tightness may lead to things like a tension headache or maybe you’re just really tight and stiff in that area you could feel it at work, this results from a lot of times the way we drive, just life in general set up with, we’re either on our cell phones, we’re driving more hunched over when they flexion position.

I want you in that position. You’re really going to squeeze for a second and then slowly bring your hands out back and down towards your side. I’m going to turn around so you could see what my back is doing here. As I pull back and down. We’re tracking my shoulder blades back, which we point you in the back, bringing them down slightly making sure you try to bring your shoulder blade into the front pocket of your pants.
