This is a series on exercises that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and outside of the gym. Today’s exercise is the static back.

You should do this because–  it’s a great reset for posture when you’ve been sitting or standing a lot throughout the day.  If you have lower back pain, this will help relieve an achy back.

Makes your everyday life easier because– it helps relieve your stress and resets your breathing. People can breathe into their upper chest rather then their belly (where you should be breathing from)  during times of stress.

Form tips –  Make sure your legs are at a 90 degree angle and your head is in a comfortable position.  Breathe in through the nose and down into your belly and then breathe out through your mouth. Do this for 5- 10 minutes and relax.
