- Activating the core is vital for Dynamic Posturology.
- Hanging legs raises are excellent for core development and lengthening the spine.
- Kicking motions are great for twisting the obliques and strengthening the core.
- Core development is all about mobilising the spine in multiple planes of movement.
- Tight chest and pecs are often caused through overworking the muscles, slumping forward at a desk or bad exercise technique and balance.
- Tight chests muscles squeeze and close the diaphragm.
- Dynamic posturology can help to re-open up the diaphragm through stretching and lengthening the chest muscles.
- People who breathe deeply are relaxed and in a confident psychological state.
- Good posture is more than just how you hold your chest.
- Poor head position highlights tightness in the neck.
- Back work will take tension away from the neck.
- Work on flexibility of the neck using stretches with and without resistence.
- Squats increase glute activation.
- Helps stretch and align the hips.
- Full body activation.
- Exposes postural imbalances for the trainer.
- Fully loaded spine and skeletal system.
- Front squats in particular help to brace the core.
- Dynamic posturology is all about power and movement.
- Correcting posture increases diaphragmatic breathing and energy production by extending the chest and abdomen.
- The twisting of the obliques during sprinting mobilises and strengthens the spine helping to align the skeletal system.
- Heel to toe actions through sprinting increases hamstring and glute activation.
- Sprinting strengthens joints and ligaments.
