Bodyism: The Better Posture Workout

Jourdana ON Dec 10, 2012 AT 9:10 am

This week, Bodyism trainer Lee Mullins takes us through the Better Posture Workout. Requiring no equipment, the exercises can be done anytime, anywhere. If you haven’t already warmed up, here’s The Perfect Bodyism Warm Up.

Disco Lunge

Stand up tall, feet together with perfect posture
As you lunge forward with your right foot, extend both arms above your head to make a Y shape
Then return to the start position and bring your arms to your side
Repeat 10 – 15 times on each leg

 

Stork Pose

Stand on your left leg with your arms raised out at your sides
Keeping your back flat, slowly bend forward at your waist while reaching your right heel back and toward the sky.
Pause when you feel a stretch in the back of the upper thigh of your down leg, then return to the starting position and repeat.

 

Superman

Start on all fours, with your back straight, arms slightly bent at the elbows and your toes dug into the floor
Lift your right hand and your left knee off the floor, keeping your back flat
Bring your right elbow towards your stomach and your left knee towards your chest so they both touch, whilst maintaining a straight back
Extend your right arm out in front of you at a 45 degree angle and push your leg straight back
Return to the start position and repeat 10 times on each side

 

T’s

Stand with feet shoulder width apart, chest up, shoulders back, and spine in proper alignment
Bend your knees slightly and sit your hips back slightly, so your butt sticks out
Keep your arms straight and your thumbs up towards the ceiling
Drawing your shoulder blades in toward your spine, extend your arms to the sides to 3o clock and 9 o clock, to create a T shape with your arms and torso
Repeat this 15 times

 

Y’s

Stand with feet shoulder width apart, chest up, shoulders back, and spine in proper alignment
Bend your knees slightly and sit your hips back slightly, so your butt sticks out
Keep your arms straight and your thumbs up towards the ceiling
Drawing  your shoulder blades in toward your spine, extend your arms to 11 o clock and 1 o clock, to create a Y shape with your arms and torso
Repeat this 15 times
