I like simple things.
Simple fixes. Simple solutions.
I think this is what Occam’s Razor is all about. That the simplest solution is often the correct one. Well that’s the way I understand it.
And I like when simple things transfer over to other things.
Consider for example in day to day life how a solution makes your life better and it helps in more than one way.
Below I’ve added a video for you.
And it has to do with helping alleviate low back pain and improve your posture.
The video only runs a few minutes so have a quick watch.
To recap the points from the video:
* slide to the edge of your seat
* split your feet wide into a V position
* grab the seat between your legs
* push your chest tall as you drive your heels into the floor and pull with your arms
***really fine print…guys I assume no responsibility if you should wreck your wife or girlfriend’s favourite chair
Here’s where this gets really cool.
If you can repeat these points on your deadlifts you will instantly improve your deadlifts.
Why is this so?
Because many deadlifts start with a collapsed chest, a relaxed low back or by pulling with the arms instead of driving through the heels.
So if you have:
* poor posture
* especially while sitting
* low back pain
* a goal to improve your deadlifts
Make sure to incorporate this tip into your day to day occupation as well as your workout routine.
All the best.
