Exercises to Correct Posture

By Steve Silverman

Doing exercises to correct your posture is something that can only help you with your everyday activities. Poor posture can lead to back and neck pain, breathing problems and digestive issues. By standing straighter and slumping less, you will feel better and look better.

Shoulder Shrugs

Use 3-lb. weights in each hand while sitting on an exercise ball. Find your balance point and then drop your hands down. Lift your shoulders 10 times in a shrugging manner. Wait 30 seconds and do it again.

Roll on the Exercise Ball

Lie on your stomach on the exercise ball. Extend your hands over your head. Roll toward your head and stop at your neck before you roll back to your midsection. Repeat this 10 times.

Hip Lift

Lie down on the floor on your back and bend your knees. Raise your hips 6 inches off the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds and then put your hips back down on the floor. Repeat this 10 times.
