The Key to maintain a good body posture as we age. Part 2

Part 2

As we age, most of us start adopting a Kyphotic posture.

This week’s blog is written by Vintage Fitness personal trainer and physiotherapist, Cristina. Cristina has 19 years of experience as a physiotherapist in Brazil and has a 2 year fitness degree from Humber College.

This is part 2 of a series on how to maintain a good position as we age. Last week we discussed how as we age we tend to adapt a Kyphotic posture and discussed the Straight-arm shoulder blade squeeze exercise to improve our posture.

Today, Cristina will give us nother exercise to add to our toolbox to battle against Kyphotic posture.

Exercise

Band Rowing

Band Rowing exercise - Band Relaxed

Band Rowing exercise - Pull the Band

  1. Anchor your elastic tubing or band at about waist height. Take one end in each hand.
  2. Sit or stand with your feet hip-width apart.
  3. Hold your arms straight in front of you. Adjust your distance to create slight tension in the tubing or band.
  4. Pull the band straight back, without shrugging your shoulders. Your elbows will pass alongside your waist.
  5. Repeat 10 times.
  6. 3 sets.

Next week Cristina will advice us on an additional new exercise to improve our posture as we age.

Good Luck!
