  • I have always been proud of my posture, as a large woman all my life, I am blessed with remarkable self confidence. Three years in a wheel chair, then walker, then cane has changed my world. I am learning to walk tall again, and find that my eyes tend to look down, from fear of falling. This is one of the things I have carried to a trainer for help. Article is a good one, somethings are out of my range, but others are well received and I will incorporate to my routine. - 1/26/2014 7:06:13 PM
  • Was just talking with my health coach about this issue earlier today. I've had terrible posture since childhood and have been disappointed that it has not improved as I have lost weight and become more fit. I guess I'll just have to focus more on the exercises described here. - 12/18/2013 9:34:49 PM

  • My back always hurt me. I think that's why my left hip hurt me so bad because of my back. But when I walk I always walk straight up. - 9/13/2013 9:45:09 PM
  • I have had terrible posture since I was a child and in recent years have suffered from a pinched nerve in my neck, sciatica, bone spurs on my spine, and arthritis in my spine. I am still pretty young to be having all of this. So I am working on my posture. It is something that I try to think about all day long because otherwise I will slip back into my old habits. - 4/30/2013 8:36:43 PM

    I'm wondering why we're avoiding a full sit-up. I know that they're hard. But why doesn't the author want us to do them? - 9/15/2011 3:31:47 PM

    A wise chiropactor told me alot of these tips years back. I also like Frederic Delaviers training books he knows his anatomy better than any other strength training pro's as has degrees in human dissection as well as being a pro power lifter.. He has gotten me through safely improved my posture and with hard work off constant painkillers.. His colour coding muscle groups activated with each exercise is state of the art.. He opened my eye to use less energy on exercises that over lap each other.. - 6/15/2011 9:33:26 AM
