If you need a quick boost, this 15-minute bodyweight workout will help you improve posture using a series of isometric exercises that laterally flex / side bend the trunk and spine using the sponge ball.
These exercises are crucial for spinal stability, as these are the muscles that keep us upright! Strong spinal erectors help us to have a strong posture with healthy shoulder mechanics. These are great exercises for shoulder dysfunction or upper back discomfort.
Think of this as a preparation to exercise and a solution to prolonged hours of sitting! Remember that you are only as good as your core. When these muscles are are weak, it is difficult to transfer force from the limbs to the core and the core out to the limbs. The foundation of our movement and strength lies in the trunk and spine.
This routine can be done anywhere, anytime. It can reduce fatigue after exercise, as a prevention from injury, and to help manage your muscle strength. This can also be used as a warm-up or as a workout in itself. Isometrics are the precursor to adding any load and challenge to our body.
