Back Workout For Better Posture #25DaysofMFit

It is Day 18 of the #25DaysofMFit! That means you have completed 17 workout videos this month! Congratulations! Today we are going to do a back workout for better posture. We all need this one. 

It is safe to say you have worked every muscle group over the past couple weeks. Today, we are focusing on some big and little muscles in the back. Specifically, we are going to strengthen all of those muscles back there that help you stand up tall.

Having proper posture, both in life and in your workouts, is very important. It will not only help you appear taller, but it will improve your breathing, keep your spine safe, and decrease lower back and neck pain. The health risks involved with having bad posture are scary. So, let’s fix that posture today!

I’ve work on posture with most of my personal training clients. The exercises in the workout below are the one’s I use in a posture-focused workout program. But remember, strength exercise is just one part of the equation. You also need to stretch. Reference this post for stretches that will help keep your shoulders back.
