Mythbusting #1: Will exercise fix my posture?

Exercise helps a lot, we see very good results with pilates, yoga and even weight training on posture but here is the thing- they are not long lasting.

You see… we don’t have the muscles attached in such a way that we can pull one vertebra back on another when it is stuck forward (think that rounded shoulders and hump back).

And Yes, we get like that by sitting all day (even from standing all day) and we can’t fix it- we get worse…!!!

If you have 10-20 minutes everyday to exercise to do stretching and strengthening exercises it helps…challenging for a stay at home mom or a busy executive. With the right program, you can fit it in.

A carefully planned gym schedule that does not miss out on any groups is what we strive for with Spirohealth‘s hand picked Personal Trainers.

Did you know???

Unbalanced exercise can do harm to your posture- eg press ups- uses around 9 muscle groups but if you have a forward head posture, you will be weak and take strain in doing 1 -2 reps. Sound familiar?

Squatting is another good one- if your lower back is very curved- this will place extra stress on that area and restrict range of motion. Firing up your gluts? Not really.

At Spirohealth, we can help you and you will see and feel a change in your first visit.
