Essentrics Benefits: Improves Posture

Very few fitness programs focus on improving posture and it's one of the greatest benefits of Essentrics™! Poor posture does not improve with age unless we become proactive and consciously make the change. Good posture needs regular maintenance.

The health issues from poor posture range from mild to serious. The minor issues are lack of energy caused by the rib cage collapsing forward and restricting the expansion of the lungs. Lungs need space to expand and breathe. Restricting the degree of fresh air inhaled means there will be less energy for two reasons; lack of oxygen from reduced inhalation and an inability to fully expel toxins from reduced exhalation. One the serious side, poor posture encourages a dropping of the upper back; encouraging osteoporosis, atrophy, protruding organs and an ineffective digestive system.

In order to be able to reverse poor posture the entire torso needs to be stretched and strengthened while rebalancing the entire body. Essentrics tackles the problem of stiff atrophying back muscles with unique exercises that loosen and free locked muscles, which will rebalance the spine and result in posture improvement.
