This past weekend, I had one of the highlights of my year so far:
In the photo, you can see my 9-year old son while I was skiing just beside him. It was an amazing experience to be on the mountain, enjoying the incredible view while skiing. He’s gotten into snowboarding and loves doing it.
However, at the age of 9, he was already to surpass my ski skill level. So, this week, I plan to watch a number of YouTube videos on how to become a better skier to hopefully keep up with my son.
Today, I wanted to go through the best exercise you can do if you sit all day.
CLICK HERE to watch the YouTube video.
I got Donnalee to demonstrate the exercise.
While working, people tend to be sitting like this:
When you are sitting, driving, attending meetings or doing computer and tablet work, you often put yourself into a head-forward posture. This leads to more tension in the neck and more stress in the midback and back of the neck, often leading to headaches, tension, neck pain and shoulder pain.
Here is the best exercise that you can do to fix your forward head posture if you sit all day.
Sit on a chair in an upright position. Open up your shoulders and drop your chin by bringing the chin back.
Going through this exercise will help you with your forward head posture and provide you with numerous health benefits.
Perform one set of 5 reps with a good stop of 1 to 2 seconds at the end. You can progress to 10 reps with 5- to 10-second holds.
Give this exercise a go if you sit a lot. It will help you fix your head position and overcome neck pain.
