Here is a simple little tip to keep good posture and alignment from Danny Dreyer (Chi Running).
Danny mentions up to a 30% increase in lung capacity with proper poster. That sounds good to me. This is sure to provide some noticeable or subtle benefits for nearly all runners and athletes.
Did you try his suggestion? Did you notice the subtle (or dramatic) posture change? My biggest slouch moments are when sitting at a desk working on a computer. I notice the change with Danny’s tip. I will have to observe my posture when running today and see if I notice anything.
Here are seven more posture tips that will help with all aspects of life. Most all are ones we have heard before but they are definitely worth putting back into our awareness.
Enjoy and happy training!
