Tired of working out and not getting the results you want? Frustrated that no matter how much cardio you do or how many times per week you lift, you’re just not seeing the weight loss or muscle development you’d like? While there are several reasons this could be the case, one reason in particular may be very surprising. Your posture!
Did you know that poor posture and alignment have a direct impact on exercise and nutrition? In fact, your posture is the single most important factor along with handling stress that will prevent you from being successful with nutrition and exercise. Poor posture affects your flexibility, mobility, muscular position and muscle length which subsequently affects your movement and exercise. And when your spine is out of position, spinal nerves are unable to activate organs and muscles for functions like breathing, digestion, nutrient absorption, waste elimination, circulation and immune function.
And since we live in a society where we exhibit poor postural habits on a daily basis by performing repetitive tasks and the use of technology, the position of our spine and weight bearing joints are frequently compromised.
