Hip Bridge with March

Posture Improvement Exercises

Good posture puts your body in the ideal alignment to function at its best.

Proper posture minimizes joint pain by equalizing the stress load of muscles and joints used in daily movements such as driving, prolonged sitting and using a computer or laptop.

Good posture also will mean better exercise performance, since the body will be properly aligned.

■ Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor.

■ Rest arms, palms down, along your sides.

■ Raise hips so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees.

■ Contract your abdominal muscles and lift your right knee toward your chest. Hold your lifted leg for two counts and then lower it back down, keeping your hips off the ground.

■ Repeat with the other leg to finish one repetition. Do 2 sets of 8 to 12 repetitions.
