Perfect Your Posture

Even if you start and follow an improved fitness plan to a T, we can't go back in time and eliminate years of poor exercise form or all the time you spent slumped over your desk.  The day to day stresses literally change the shape of your body, which can leave you looking like a hunchback.  Over time, your poor posture takes a tremendous toll on your spine, hips, shoulders, and knees.  In fact, it can cause a cascade of structural flaws that result in acute problems, such as reduced flexibility, joint pain throughout your body, and compromised muscles, all of which can limit your ability to burn fat and build strength.

But don't worry - these problems can be corrected. Are you ready to straighten yourself out?  Use this guide and these tips to make sure your posture is picture perfect. 

Avoid a slump! 2 second lifesaver
In the am. have your mate place a strip of 2 inch bandage tape across  your bare shoulder blades (like a jersey). During the day, you'll feel it pull  when you slump.  Soon you'll self-correct sans tape.
