it’s not just working out, it’s building a foundation for a better life.
How’s it going? It’s Ekemba from SolCore Fitness again, and I’ve gotten some questions about best posture for sitting. This could be in a desk or in a car. So there are some things you can do to have good posture. I start by saying that sitting, in general, is terrible, anything stagnant on your body is not good, it wants to move around, so that’s why this big shift towards standing desks has been okay, but now you have different problems. So instead of back problems, you have foot problems. Instead of hip problems, you have circulation problems.
Your body wants to move, so get up and move around a lot. Take a walk around the block, do some jumping jacks, move your body around a little bit, break up the time in between sitting down. When you are sitting, you have three main points. First and foremost, you want to look at the top third of the screen, that way then your neck doesn’t go to too much extension or flexion and throws your posture off and throws you spine off. The other two is you want your elbows and hips approximately 90 degrees, that way you don’t have too much compression at the hip and the elbow. And you can see this is a little bad for me, but again, I want to look at the top of the screen, so I’ll sacrifice that a little bit.
Use this Exercise to Open Up Your Shoulders
While you’re sitting there, you can move too. So in this posture, everything rounds, so I can open up my shoulder girdle with what’s called a five-part shoulder. It’s a movement to generally open up the whole shoulder girdle. You start by sitting forward in your chair, getting as tall as possible, reach your arms out to the side and try and push your arms away and try and touch either wall. Staying tall as you push your arms away from your body, you lift up to the ceiling and trying touch the ceiling. You push your arms forward in front of you allowing your shoulders to come down with you, and once they’re parallel, you do a row. You keep your upper arms by your side and you stay tall, you open the doors and close the doors, and you do one arm at a time, try to point towards your opposite shoulder blade, and then you go back out to the other side. So, here’s how it looks all together. Push lift, forward, down, row, open close, one arm at a time, reach and repeat.
Do it you know five to ten times provide periodically throughout the day, and you’ll notice, there are certain parts that are difficult, so opening up or bring your arm behind you, that says to you that you have specific areas you need to stretch. So the best thing I know is myofascial stretching ELDOA to open up different chains of muscles at different joints in your spine, so you sit with a little bit more with better posture. So try that five-part shoulder and good luck to you.

The desire to be the best! Striving to be a better you! Commitment to excellence! These are philosophies that we truly believe in and what our company is built upon.
In fact the “commitment to excellence” is one of our Core Values. It is always our desire to attract people who need our assistance and who are aligned with our core values. This makes the process smooth, because since we all “think alike” they have no problem following the directions and understanding the process.
Barbara fits this to a T. She is a person who really thinks things out first and likes to understand what is to come. But she is also very much an action taker and pretty competitive.
These two defining attributes have really propelled her to some amazing results. I am proud to announce Barbara Radov as our June member of the month.
1) What made you decide you wanted/needed to start a program.
I knew that I needed to do something besides cardio. I am really good getting my hikes in and walks, but I knew that to have good physical quality of life, as I got older I needed to improve my strength and posture.
2) What did you do before?
A lot of hiking! I had taken yoga and at one point joined a gym, but I never found what I was looking for.
3) What results have you achieved since starting your program that you are proud of?
I drink so much more water than I ever have. My posture has improved and I am much stronger. I now notice how much better my posture is on my hikes and how my legs aren’t tired or sore at the end of a long hike. And my balance and awareness is much better. I used to loose my balance and do things like run into the walls, but that is gone.
4) Do you have a favorite exercise? Least? What do you like or don’t like about them.
I have a love hate relationship with the roll up roll down abs. I see and feel how good they are for me, for my core and spine… they are just so hard! My least favorite exercise is the frogs. That is a really tough series.
5) What are some challenges or goals you are currently working on?
I want to keep improving my posture.
6) What do you like best about our program/ having a trainer?
The expertise in class is wonderful. The other people in class really motivate me. And the fact that you guys are always bettering yourselves is really inspiring.
7) What advice would you give to the other SolCore Fitness members?
Isn’t this fun! Doesn’t it feel good to push yourself in such a positive way!
8) What would you say to someone on the fence about joining our program?
If you REALLY do it. It will change your life.
