Improve Your Posture for a Better Workout
Q: What's the most common technique flaw you see in the gym?
A: Most people struggle to hold the appropriate posture, or what we refer to as pillar strength. Pillar strength is the complete integration of the shoulders, torso, and hips, which when held with great stability—that is, when you focus on sitting and standing tall from your hips through the top of your head—allows you to create better mobility and recruitment of every muscle in your body. It’s the one thing that makes everything else better and more efficient. Learn more about pillar strength.
