Better Posture for Your FuturePosted on September 7, 2015
When standing or sitting, focus on keeping your shoulder blades down and back. To do this, perform a backwards shoulder roll. Stop at the bottom and back-most part of the movement and this is how you should hold your shoulders ALWAYS. It may feel uncomfortable at first but only because your ligaments and muscles are adapting to this new position. It puts your shoulder blades and arms in an optimal position to use them in the way they were meant to move. Not working on your posture now can lead to chronic pain and tension in your upper back and neck or even permanent disfiguration of your upper spine and shoulder girdle.
