Perfect posture will dramatically decrease your potential for injury in the lower back, knees, ankles, shoulders and elbows. Use these tips to make sure that you're sitting up straight:

  1. Keep your shoulder blades pulled back and down.
  2. Elevate your chest.
  3. Keep your tummy drawn up and in.
  4. If you're standing with perfect posture, your ears should be in line with your shoulders, your hips with your knees, and your knees with your ankles.
  5. If you're seated, there should be a line between your ears and hips.
