Developing Strong Upper Torso Posture

Development of a strong posterior (back) upper torso is important to reduce injury in overhead “throwing” sports, while also preventing “rounded” shoulders (humped back) that seems to effect women more, as they age. By strengthening this area, it gives the individual the perception of a taller, upright posture – the result of not bending at the mid-spine area.

Waxing the Walls & Floor

Stand facing a wall with the hands outstretched above – shoulder width apart. Using two face cloths, light cleaning rags, or thin socks, simply perform the action of clockwise waxing of the walls with each hand in a small diameter, circling action. Then, placing the hands below parallel at chest height, shoulder-width apart, spread the hands out to the side and return – applying light pressure.

The same format can be performed using the floor from a kneeling position – using light pressure.

Remember, you should always consult your physician before beginning any exercise, diet, or nutritional supplementation program.
