Posture and Athletics

Does this picture look familiar? I can still feel this position from my plane flight and car ride today. It is easy to forget about posture when you are sitting and the computer, driving in the car or flying but these habits can have long term impacts on our athletic performance. Poor posture is one of the major contributors to muscular imbalances which are the drivers for most repetitive strain injuries (most of these are actually preventable). Daily stretching and core/activation exercises are critical to improve/maintain posture which are keys to
athletic performance. So remember to position yourself properly when you are driving, sitting, on the lap top and even sleeping (basically at all times!).

Take care,
