Q: Can exercise help with my posture?
A: Yes, bad posture is typically caused by a weak core, which include your internal and external obliques, rectus abdominis (abs) and erector spinae muscles. By strengthening these muscles, which help move your torso by flexing, rotating and extending your spine, you will see improvements in your daily posture. Attending yoga, Pilates, Back to Abs or any other strength training classes can help to
improve your core strength.
Also, after a cardio warm up it would be beneficial to do crunches, hold plank or side planks and any other abdominal exercises that you feel comfortable with. You may also want to hire a personal trainer help you get started with a strong core workout. Make sure to stop any activity that is causing you pain.
