Looking Sexy and Alive - Peak Body Efficiency- Standing

Having good posture means your bones, muscles, joints and ligaments are all in the positions that nature intended. This allows the vital organs, nervous system and the whole body to function at peak efficiency. It also prevents back and neck pain and injuries.

The basic tenet of good posture is to keep the area from your neck all the way down to your pelvis straight, with no slouching forward, backward, to either side, or twisting.

  • Eyes should be level with the horizon, not looking down.
  • Your ears should be above your shoulders, (your head should not be forward of your shoulders) and shoulders located above your waist, your waist located above your knees, with your heels located directly under your knees.
  • Knees should be relaxed, not locked.
  • Both hips should be level with the ground, not leaning to one side or to the front or back.
  • Feet should be shoulder width apart, with equal weight distribution.

If you find yourself putting more weight on one leg, then switch to the other side and give it some time also gently be aware of your abdomen muscles and pull them in slightly​

IN OTHER WORDS, your body should be in a relaxed, straight vertical line. You’ll notice you feel better, less tired and achy if you practice standing with a proper posture.
