💥 Rounded shoulders? Tight chest and bad posture? Try this! Many people just want to improve this cosmetically or may feel like their neck, upper back, or shoulder discomfort is related.
Although sometimes this can relate to those aches and pains, we cannot say that your posture will definitively lead to pain because that is not true, so don’t be scared! The goal here is to just open the chest up and get the shoulders moving to feel better and look better.
At the end of the day, posture is just a snapshot of one particular position. The more positions we are in throughout the day the better we will feel. Our body doesn’t like staying in any 1 “posture” for long periods of time no matter how “perfect” it looks.
1️⃣ Lay on a foam roller so that your tailbone and head are supported. Begin by letting the shoulders relax bringing the arms out to the side. Now bring the arms up and overhead then out in a circle like a snow angel to get the shoulders involved and open the chest more!
