Female: Hello, and welcome. I am Jenny Didonato and you are watching the Brides Made Fit video blog and today, we are going to talk about posture. Posture is a very important aspect of your training program especially right from the get go. Now, a big cause for having bad posture could be from sedentary life style like what are you doing right now. You are sitting at your computer and a lot of people, I know you are guilty of it, sit at work and hunch over their keyboard like this. Ladies, if this is you, you may be looking like this as you are walking down the aisle holding your flowers. What does that make us look like? Not confident and we are also putting a lot of our emphasis on our midsections and we do not want that because you see it is falling over right now. So that is one thing that you need to pay attention to as you are starting your program. Also bad posture or incorrect posture could result from any impact which could be from an accident unfortunately or any kind of sport injury that has not been healed correctly, your body is going to compensate. Another cause could be repetitive stress from training. Incorrect movements, let us say if you are not being watched over from a fitness professional and your posture is bad when you are doing let us say a chest press or a back roll, your body is going to heal improperly causing for some bad posture which could be hunching over of your shoulders that way. But let us understand first that muscle and joint balance is essential for having correct posture and you want to understand too that each movement depends on the stability and function of the other muscles. So let us say if your knees are weak, your ankles may suffer along with your hips, along with your shoulder even so we want to be able to target the problem because your body will compensate for any tight or injured areas throwing your body out of alignment and possibly causing more injuries and also leading to bad posture.
