I’m not sure from whom you heard it first: your mother, your grandmother, your grade school teacher, or maybe all of them. “Sit up straight! Don’t slouch!”
Now, an occasional slouch is just fine. What they were hoping to prevent is the habit of slouching, which could lead to bad posture. And, it turns out they were right.
Gravity is a never-ending challenge. It’s constantly pulling us down, and when we give way, heads jut out, shoulders cup forward, lower backs flatten, hips flex, and so on. The more time spent in this position, the more our bodies begin to permanently take that shape. Unfortunately, poor posture doesn’t just affect how tall we appear, it leads to many unfortunate consequences. Here are just a few:
Fortunately, the Welcyon exercise protocols are designed to address these problems. The Flexibility Station is a gravity fighter; each exercise stretches one or more of these tight body parts. The strength exercises target anti-gravity muscles to provide you with more strength to stand and sit taller, reducing your risk of succumbing to slouching-related consequences like those above.
