3 exercises to improve your WFH postureNovember 17th
When spending long hours at a computer we tend to adopt a slouched position whereby our shoulders rotate inwards. This can cause unwanted discomfort in your upper and lower back, neck, chest and shoulders.
The aim of these 3 exercises is to counteract these postural adaptations to ensure you maintain an upright posture and efficient movement of your body.
Thoracic extension with K. peanut
– Place the peanut in the middle of your back. Bend your knees and place your hands around your head and neck for support.
– Gently extend over the peanut.
– Shuffle down so the peanut works up towards your neck.
2. Lat release with K. peanut
– Lying on your side with the peanut placed into your armpit.
– Place your hands around your head and open the top elbow to the roof and open up your chest.
– You can also place your top hand on the floor and rotate your arm closest to the floor up and down.
3. Pec release with the peanut
– Stand facing a wall with the peanut long ways on the wall.
– push the peanut away from your body as you rotate your chest away from the wall.
– Push the peanut in different directions away from your body to target different fibres of your pec.
