Do you slouch when you sit in your chair? Do you look at the ground when you walk/run? The specific function of all our muscles is to support the skeleton and provide a means of motion. By engaging your core muscles throughout the day you can improve your posture, reduce back pain, and breath easier. Most people let their stomach muscles relax resulting reduced support for the lower back. While sitting at your desk, sit with the chest and shoulders raised, engage the abdominals and back muscles. The more conscious you are, the better your posture, and the stronger you will be. By being conscious of your physical stance and making minor corrections you can start reducing low back pain and work your core all day long!
