Straighten Up: 5 Tricks To Improve Your Posture and Balance

Lift Off!

Don’t leave the weight lifting to the guys if you want that perfect posture. It’s as easy as grabbing a pair of five pound dumbbells (or no weights at all), and with just a few consistent exercises you’ll notice the difference in no time.

You really want to focus on the muscles in your shoulders and your upper back, which when stronger, will help to diminish your slouchy stance.

Try standing in a straight position with your arms at your sides, with or without weights, and lift your arms past your ears. Your body should create a T-shape. Repeat this exercise 10 times.
