Day 18

Upper back activation with core connection. You know that mid back achy pain you get? That pain comes from a muscle imbalance between tight chest muscles and weak mid back postural muscles. This is really common with collapsed posture that comes from a weak core. This is a great way to remind those back muscles what to do and how to do it. The ultimate goal is to gradually use those muscles to pull your shoulder blades back and down with all your upright posture.

Don’t forget to roll your shoulders back and to exhale and engage your core before you do this upper back activation — 5 seconds a few times a day is enough!
