    I spent much of my time sitting slumped over a laptop, I had developed a terrible slouch. And I wasn’t proud of it. Not only did it make me look unconfident and lazy, little did I know, my poor posture was also wreaking havoc on my upper body flexibility.
    After I discovered my slouching, I typically do all of the above exercises on my rest days. A few of them, I’ll do before I start squatting. Ever since I started incorporating these exercises into my fitness routine, my flexibility and posture have improved significantly. I’m happy to report that I’m now able to get my wrists straight in the low bar squat, and have become healthier.

    I was wondering if there are any good core exercise sheets that help me with my posture.
