Having a poor posture shares such a common link with neck pain, especially if you sit at a desk for a majority of the day! That rounded posture will alter the pull of the muscles that attach to the neck, and inevitably lead to increased tension and pain.
The most common cause of neck pain of this sort is soreness in the upper traps.
These 3 exercises will provide you with a great foundation to help your body attain the proper position throughout the day, cueing you to increase your positional awareness.
Additionally, they will help decrease the tension in your traps and other neck muscles, decreasing the chance you’ll experience pain while you bang away at the keyboard!
Give them a try - hopefully they’ll build within you the ability to become a posture Jedi like our very own Lenny Murgi!
