Great set of core exercises

Great set of core exercises

Here is a great infographic of a series of useful exercises which with regular practice will help avoid injury, improve your posture and maybe even rehabilitate old niggling injuries.  

I recently started incorporating this into my daily routine and its been working wonders. Frankly it would be great to see schools encouraging pupils to learn and practice these as it would do wonders for their long-term flexibility and as we know, prevention is far better than cure when it comes to poor posture.  Even if you are a relatively active person, this will work groups of muscles that don't commonly get used, so there is huge benefit for people of all levels of fitness to utilize something like this.

Posture Infographic

Improve your posture with a great lower back workout.

This is a great series of exercises to help your lower back and improve your posture.

Some of them are a little tricky, but take it slow and steady and after 12 minutes or so, you should definitely be feeling the benefits of being more limber. Over time, this will absolutely improve your core stability, posture and loosen up your lower back.

Do pay attention to the details and cues and continue only as long as is comfortable. If you have acute or chronic back pain, want to enjoy the benefits of better posture, or simply want to become a better athlete, this is a great posture improvement video.
