Bi-Weekly pelvic Floor Tip: Exercises for Improving Posture
Muscles require strengthening for improved posture. Here is another exercise to add to your toolbox that will help to prove your posture during pregnancy. Remember to keep it simple and safe.
Standing Row: Stand in a lunge position with knees slightly bent. Loop your resistance band around a stationary object, such as a bar or a stair railing. Step back to take the slack out of the band, and grasp both handles one in each hand. Stand tall and lift the chest. Pull the handles back toward your waist, keeping the elbows close to your sides, and lower back slightly arched. As the handles touch your body, squeeze your shoulder blades together, and reverse the direction, slowly returning the handles to the starting position. This exercise improves posture and shoulder girdle muscular balance to develop the upper back.
