You think you’ve been standing right this whole time, eh?
If you’re living in a modern society, then chances are your idea of good posture is not actually what good posture is, according to this interesting article from ScrawnyToBrawny.com. The author of the article, Nate Green, states:
Apparently, I’ve been standing wrong for 28 years.
Well, no, that’s not quite right. I’ve been standing wrong ever since I started working out (about 10 years ago) and learned that “good posture” was to keep your chest high and shoulders back.
Turns out that’s NOT good posture.
Chris told me so, the other day when I was working out at his gym. He said, “your chest is puffed up too much and your shoulders are too far back.”
I told him I didn’t even know that was a thing. That’s how I thought you were supposed to stand.
