What’s Your Natural and True Posture?

Kymberly Williams-Evans, MA and Alexandra Williams, MA

Posture

Is This Perfect Posture? Where's the Cleavage?

Do you want to improve your posture? Are you keen to enjoy the happy, comfy, confident body that good posture brings? Do you want to instantly look 5 pounds thinner? Ok, so now we have your attention.

To get where you’re going, you need to know where you start. Or something like that. We were tempted to start with “Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Perfect Posture,” but you might have thought we were pickled.

Your first step is to know your current posture — unchanged, unmodified, no artificial sticks-up-the-wherever added. But how can you establish your normal stance without already thinking about trying to “correct” it?

Cue the trumpets as Fun and Fit talk you through an easy way to get to your regular, 100% all natural beefcake posture. Once you have that established, you are in the perfect position to make assessments, observations, and improvements. And with enough comments on this post, we might make those video sequels showing you how to assess and progress. For now, don’t mess with what you have going now. Just know what you are dealing with. Us! And You!

    So I do this out in public? March in place, turn right, turn left. Close my eyes,voila!

    I am resisting adding a verse from the hokey-pokey.

    Seriously, though, I understand your point about finding a more natural way to assume good posture! I tend to jerk my shoulders back, but this tends to thrust the girls forward. Not always an appropriate move.

    And, Kymberly, saw you in HealthMonitor at Home Magazine. Woohoo! A pleasant surprise to see your face! Congratulations!

      hahahaha. I think you should do a video of you doing this WITH the hokey pokey. We’d love it! No matter how much I thrust my shoulders back, my girls keep looking south. I must have lovely toes! And now I’m curious about this place where you saw Kymberly. What does she do when I’m not looking? Hmmmm.

      Hey thanks Kathleen for the shout out about seeing that little blurb from me in the mag. Now that it’s in print, I can’t keep up that bad habit any more. Darn! Where did you see it?

      Ha, Kathleen, your post made me laugh out loud. This is a great blog and great posture seems to be something I’m working on constantly! @FunandFit, thanks so much. Your blogs really bring much light to important health tips/issues. You’re the best!

      Appreciatively,

    I love the new video tip feature! Must say I was waiting for Kymberly to cue Alexandra to close her eyes, turn around in a circle and then walk forward into the cactus patch behind you. But, no such fun happened–just good ole” solid fitness advice as usual!!! Can’t wait for the next one! Love your stuff.

    Thanks Meg. Did I ever tell you how much I like you more than anyone related to me who was born on the same day? Oh, wait. This video was her idea. Trust me – she wanted to push me into that patch after we argued for a while in the corn field. We had an intro taped there that didn’t work because of the sound. P.S. We are taking requests you know! My students at UCSB have asked us to do videos of all my class exercises. No small feat there!

    I’m amazed that the boobies-out-as-far-as-they’ll-go approach isn’t your natural posture!

    So how do those with poor posture improve it, especially when the go to bust thrust isn’t the answer?

    I am excited to see the next video and learn about the right way. I have always felt that there is something wrong with the bust thrust way of posture. I think I look funny and overdoing things. I hope to learn the right way especially that my posture is getting worst.

    Would love to see the next video. My posture is absolutely awful from too much time sitting at a desk. I need to work on it soon before it’s too late…

    Those are great illustrations. I think everyone has an issue with slouching at work or whenever they sit down.
