Maybe you don’t think much about your posture, but you should! In a recent Instagram post, BBG and Sweat App creator Kayla Itsines shared this posture workout. She said, “For the ladies who are sitting at a desk all day or are generally just trying to improve their posture, here is an at-home workout that you can do anywhere to improve and maintain your posture.”
What are the benefits of having a good posture? Kayla explained that sitting and standing with proper alignment will allow you to work more efficiently with less strain and fatigue on your ligaments and muscles. “You may also notice reduced back pain, reduced headaches, better form during your workouts, and increased energy levels.”
In a previous interview, Kayla shared the importance of working on improving posture. Kayla told POPSUGAR that core stability and postural work are a huge part of fitness that you could be missing, so make time for it with this simple workout you can do without leaving the floor!
