Here’s a quick fix to Improve Your Posture.
You need good posture to get the best golf turn for distance and power! But if you work at a computer or a desk most of your work day, like I do, your posture is more than likely abysmal! I can still hear my mother telling me to “Sit up straight!” when I was always slumping over my breakfast cereal or my homework. And she was right. My posture needs rehabilitation! Luckily there is a solution! (Keep reading.)
Today, after years of sitting at a keyboard, my shoulders are rounded, my chest muscles are tight, and my shoulders and back are out of whack. And as time goes on, my posture is only getting worse. I really don’t want this to happen, especially if I want to keep playing golf. Right now, I have a hard time getting a full turn and my power swing and distance are not what they could be. My fitness partner, Kathy Ekdhal has been working with me to improve my posture and overall flexibility. She has dozens of great exercises at her website that you can check out.
In the meantime, my friend and yoga instructor, Nancy Boyle told me about a great little video with a solution I’m going to try.
It may seem a little awkward but I work in a private space and if I want to wrap myself up to pull my shoulders back, I can do it without feeling too dorky. Seems like it should be easy enough and because it is passive, it should work as long as I remember to use it.
What do you think? Is it time to buy your own yoga strap? I checked online and they are easily available and inexpensive. Check out Amazon.com, Walmart, etc.
I just ordered one and will try it out for a few weeks and then report back. Think it will work? Add your comments in the space below.
