How Is Posture Linked To Burning Fat?
Your spine is connected to your immune system, and like dominos, when your body is sick or attempting to heal, everything else falls out of line, and when your body is not working correctly, of course, you will less likely meet your weight loss goals. Poor posture requires no effort on your muscles but will put a great deal of stress on your spine. This stress, caused by the slouching curve, can be the reason to your chronic headaches, indigestion, neck & back pain, and the possible reason why it’s hard for you to lose weight even if you’ve been exercising. Slouching can negatively affect your metabolism and lead to illnesses and disabilities. The CSS chiropractors in Tucker, GA can help you today.
The Abdominal Squeeze
For perfect posture when sitting, standing, and walking, there is a simple exercise that needs to be engrained into the muscle memory of every human is the abdominal squeeze. This exercise is more of a meditative mindfulness in which you can and should do as soon as you wake to the minute your head hits the pillow for sleep. Of course, it’s difficult to remember always to do the abdominal squeeze, but that is part of how proper posture is engrained.
Burn Calories All Day Long
Sitting and standing straight is extremely important for those who wish to age gracefully with less pain and lowered risk of diseases. To practice the abdominal squeeze exercise, merely tighten your abdominals and imagine a string pulling your head up and your shoulders down and back. This abdominal squeeze is similar to getting on the floor and doing crunches. It can be done at your desk, when you’re walking, and always when you are exercising other areas of the body such as when your doing squats, jogging, jumping-jacks, etc. Do the abdominal squeeze all day long and start training your core and you will start to burn calories while you sit.
