Posture Correcting Exercises

By Steve Silverman

If you have less than optimum posture, it probably irks you and you want to improve it. Being told to stand up straight always has an immediate impact, but it does not last very long. In order to improve your posture, you need to build up your core and back strength.

Curls on the Exercise Ball

Know that use of an exercise ball is an outstanding way to build strength in your core. Sit on an exercise ball and find your balance point. Take two 10 lb. dumbbells and do 10 lifts at the same time while maintaining your balance. Sitting on the ball will give your core a workout and it will be supplemented by the work with the dumbbells.

Hip Raises

Lay on your back and bend your knees. Put your hands on your stomach and then lift your hips about 9 inches in the air. Lower your hips and then repeat the exercise 10 times.

Wall Press

Stand about 18 inches to 24 inches from the wall. Put your hands on the wall at about shoulder height. Bend your elbows so that your chest comes close to the wall. Press your arms out to return to your original position. Repeat this exercise 10 times. Take a 30-second break and repeat the set.
