Have you ever woken up and felt a terrible pain in your back? Sometimes our muscles get so tight even when we sleep that they prevent us from keeping our back straight. But, there is no need to worry about this anymore since you can begin to implement posture stretches with our Posture Medic, specifically designed to relieve muscle pressure.
There are several posture exercises that you can do three to four times per day – or whenever you notice that your muscles are feeling tight – that will help you gradually increase your range of motion and relieve muscular pain. If you want to know more, keep reading the following guide with exercises to improve posture that we are sure you will find beneficial.
Stretches for posture and flexibility
The following posture stretches exercises will help you improve your posture and alleviate muscle tightening. We recommend holding each one of them for 5 to 15 seconds, and in a few weeks, you will indeed be noticing a difference.
Exercise 1: Posture Medic chest stretch
The first of this series of stretches to improve posture is for your chest. Begin by holding the Posture Medic straight above your head with your palms facing out. A tip is to keep your elbows straight. Then, bend your elbows and pull your arms down and back until your elbows are leveled with your shoulders. Hold for five to fifteen seconds and return to the starting position and repeat.
Exercise 2: Posture Medic lat stretch
It would help if you also learned this excellent exercise for your lats. Begin with both arms directly above your head and hold the Posture Medic with your palms facing out. Lean to one side slowly until you feel the stretch and hold for five to fifteen seconds. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side. Repeat a few times.
Exercise 3: Shoulder stretch with the Posture Medic
You will need to start by holding the Posture Medic behind your hips with the palms facing out for this exercise. Keep your elbows straight. Then, slowly raise your hands towards the ceiling while you are pushing your shoulders back. Don’t forget to keep your chest up! Also, hold the posture for five to fifteen seconds and return to the starting position. Repeat several times.
Exercise 4: Neck stretch
Start this exercise by holding the Posture Medic in front of you by the handles. Raise your arms above and over your head and rest the posture stretcher on your head’s back. Pull down gently using the handles. Your chin should move towards your chest. Hold this posture for ten to fifteen seconds and repeat from the top.
Exercise 5: Stretches for your upper traps
This last exercise will stretch your trapezoids and help with your posture. Start by holding the Posture Medic over your head with your palms facing in. Slowly bring one of your elbows down and across your body so that the stabilizer is centered on your ear. Bend your head sideways slowly, bringing your ear towards your shoulder. Relax your muscles until you feel a stretch and hold the posture for ten to fifteen seconds. Return to the starting position and repeat.
