Five Exercises to Improve Posture
2. Side Plank
Lie on your right side with your legs straight. Prop yourself up with your right forearm so your body forms a diagonal line. Rest your left hand on your hip. Brace your abs and hold for 60 seconds. If you can’t make it to 60 seconds, hold for 5 to 10 seconds and rest for 5; continue for 1 minute. Be sure your hips and knees stay off the floor.
3. Hip Bridge
Begin this exercise by lying flat on your back, knees bent up with your feet flat on the floor, about hip-width apart.
Lift your hips while squeezing your glutes, so that your body is aligned from shoulders to knees. Hold this position for 2-counts, then return to the start position to complete one repetition.
Do 2-3 sets of 12-15 reps.
