Exercise Tips to Improve Your Posture and Self Confidence (Video)

How do you recognize confident people? They have a charisma. They are experts in a particular field. They know what they do and what they say. They speak with passion – and they speak with their body posture. Even their walking reflects their confidence. 

However, you can flip the process. If you train your posture first, you will eventually feel confident, and others will recognize your boosted self-esteem. 

Having a healthy body posture requires much more than just “ stand still!”, and “pull yourself out!”

Forget about crunches and sit-ups as well. They will not help you either, unless you want some “nice” hernia to your back.

What you will need for a good posture, and thus for your confidence, are:

Mobility – this means your joints can move freely. Mobility enable smooth movement through all range of motion for each movable joint.

Stability – this means your nervous system is trained well to know when to activate which muscle. (This is not as obvious as it sounds.)

Correct movement patterns – your body is not only strong enough but knows how to correctly “execute tasks” that you often do such as a squatting, walking, running or pulling something towards or away from you. 

The exercises you will find on my video are dedicated to training your muscles, making you have a better posture. Say good-bye to back pain inshallah, feel stronger and better in your body during your daily tasks, and enhance your endurance during your cardio exercises. 

These exercises are mainly core strengthening and stability exercises. Please contact me if you are not sure whether you can do these exercises or whether you are doing them correctly.
