Fix Rounded Shoulders In 3 Steps

Fix Rounded Shoulders In 3 Steps

Fix Rounded Shoulders In 3 Steps for Women Over 40

With age comes wisdom… and unfortunately, at times, bad posture and rounded shoulders.

While we can all agree that rounded shoulders is not an attractive look, it is a lot more insidious than just pure vanity.

Rounding of the shoulders can cause neck pain, shoulder pain, and even back pain. Leaving us unable to reach our potential in our workouts, and possibly making day-to-day tasks uncomfortable.

What are the causes? Usually, tight pecs (chest muscles), biceps, upper traps, levator scap and lats, and overstretched (and weak) mid/lower traps and rhomboids.

In this workout, we cover the three aspects needed to improve rounded shoulders: mobility, strength, and flexibility.

Of course, we can’t fix the shoulders completely if you don’t address your everyday posture.

Fixing these daily tasks that may contribute to rounded shoulders:

– using a smartphone or tablet
– using a computer or laptop
– sitting for long periods
– driving a vehicle
– bending over repeatedly
– carrying heavy objects all-day

I chat about this during the workout too.

Bedtime Stretches for Low Back and Hips

Bedtime Stretches for Low Back and Hips

 

20-Minutes of Low Back & Hip Stretches

Sore low back? Tight hips?

Then you are going to LOVE this 20-minute low back and hip stretch routine.

While the title does say “Bedtime”, you can do this little routine anytime during the day.

I just prefer right before bed because I find the stretches help to center myself, get my focus back on my breathe, which in turn slows down the hamster wheel in my head so I can fall asleep faster.
