The best posture tips for everyday life and training

Poor posture is now a mass phenomenon. It is evident in about 75 percent of all people in western industrialized countries. The shoulder, neck, and thoracic vertebrae are significantly affected. Here are the best posture tips for your everyday life and training.    

It is always important to keep the attitude

Correct posture is essential when doing fitness and strength exercises. Because even the best workout makes no sense if you move incorrectly. However, studies show that this is the case for 80 of all people who exercise, even in fitness studios. But good posture starts in normal everyday life. In general, you should always try to adopt a so-called neutral position. It always helps to tense the abdominal muscles slightly and to tense the joints slightly.

The best posture tips for everyday life

  • Head up: Your head should rest calmly on the cervical spine without tensing your neck muscles. 
  • Strong core: To bring your lumbar spine into a neutral position, you tilt your pelvis forward minimally. Tip: Pretend you want to sit on a barstool.
  • Shoulder and neck: Pull the shoulders outwards and the neck down. As if you were guiding your shoulder blades back into the trouser pockets.
  • Knees: The knee joints are ideally always slightly bent. 

The best posture tips during training

  • Standing upright: For most exercises, you stand hip-wide, knees slightly bent. Your gaze is directed forward, chin lowered a little. For a straight thoracic spine, it is essential to bring your shoulders down towards the back. Tense your stomach slightly and adopt a slightly hollow back.
  • Lunges: No matter whether you move forward or backward, the upper body always remains upright. When walking along, the knee points towards the tip of the foot.
  • Exercises in a sitting position: The legs are slightly open, and the entire foot's entire sole touches the floor. The hips are straight, which guarantees an upright upper body. As when standing, the shoulders are lowered backward.
