Improve Your Posture in One Minute or Less
Hey EarthFIT fam! I wanted to make a video since many of you guys are working professionals and one thing you could do each day to better improve your mobility, decrease your aches and pains specifically in that lower body. So let’s get right into it. So let’s say you’re sitting at the office all day. You’re sitting down a lot. You probably notice a lot of tightness in your hips. This one simple thing you could do. If you do it frequently throughout the day it will change your lower body posture, make you feel tons better… that simple thing is sit in a squat.
So simply you just get off the chair and you sit in a squat just like this. (please see the video) You wanna work on keeping your back up, chest up. You want to be able to sit like this, start to time yourself, make it a little bit of a game, 30 seconds or so to start will be adequate for most people. You wanna work your way up. See if you could sit there for two minutes, three minutes, doesn’t take a lot of time. And if you do that with a lot of frequency, you’re gonna really improve the mobility and your hips, ankles, everything. That’s gonna just feel more comfortable. Let’s say you can’t get in the squat or you have some forward shoulder from sitting at a desk all day. That is okay. What I would recommend you do is just grab the chair just like this, and then work on really keeping your chest up as you sit in that squat and you shouldn’t even out tight right here in my hip flexors, and I can start to feel this. So just work, kind of play with that squat position to make it a game over time. Like I said, you want to be able to sit in that comfortably for about two to three minutes.
Now I know you may be thinking “What? That’s crazy!”, but think about other cultures that don’t have chairs, right? Their natural position is a squat. So just a simple little tip. Something that I do to stay loose in the hips, helps me not only with my lower body posture, but also cognitively moving helps my brain move a little bit better as well. So I hope you found value in this video, in this little tip I gave you, if you liked it, gimme a thumbs up. If you loved it, gimme a heart and as always stay strong.
