4 Exercises to Improve Your Posture

Better posture is something that's important for your overall health. Here are four incredibly easy exercises to help you improve yours!

The first one is a real shoulder burner, and its called the palm up row.

Pop your arms out to the side, parallel with the floor, with your hands facing down. Now make small circles backwards, then forwards. Then repeat with bigger circles. Continue until you feel a slight burning sensation in your shoulders.

The next exercise is called a resistance band pull down. It mainly works the chest area. It requires you to buy a resistance band from a fitness or sports shop.

It starts with your hands above your head holding the band. Pull your arms down sideways, bringing the band down across your collar bones. Then release back to above your head.

Changing your hand position on the band will change its tension, creating more or less of a work out for your chest.

Now for the palm up row. Step one foot on to the resistance band, then lift it up with your palm facing up. Pull your arm directly up and behind you, creating resistance and then return back to the original position.

Keep you torso slightly bent, to concentrate the effort on to your back.

Finally, back raises. Lay down facing the floor with your arms directly out in front of you. Concentrating the effort on your lower back, lift both arms and legs simultaneously off the floor and then return them to the floor.

With all these exercises, don't forget to breathe!
