Whether training for athletic performance or the day to day work grind at your desk, having a goal to improve posture should be a high priority for everyone.

Working at a desk, in front of a computer encourages poor posture. The Hip flexors tighten, the lower back muscles are underutilized and weaken, muscles of the shoulders and neck begin to slouch forward.

We need to combat this weakening of the posterior chain by incorporating exercises that help strengthen the Shoulders, Back, Glutes and Hamstrings.

These muscles are not just important for desk jockeys, they are tremendously important for athletic performance. Increased posterior chain endurance assists postural structural integrity and overall strength.

Whether you’re an endurance athlete or a power athlete, having a strong posterior chain can help prevent injury and improve performance.

Here are 4 Exercises to help Improve Posture:

Cobra

Bridge

Hinge

Overhead Squat
