This quick guide from Jeremy Ethier will help you learn how to fix forward head posture.
What is Forward Head Posture?
“Forward head posture (also known as “text neck”) is not something you should just ignore as it can have a major impact on your aesthetic, long-term health, neck pain, and even affect certain lifts your performance in the gym.”
How do you Fix it?
“Luckily, forward head posture correction is simple given that you perform the proper exercises and stretches. When it comes to the forward head posture “fix”, you need to focus on two things; stretching/massaging the muscles that have become shortened and using exercises to strengthen the muscles that have become weakened.”
“Although I wouldn’t call it a quick fix to forward head posture, given that you perform what is shown in this video daily and stick to the stretches/exercises consistently you’ll see major improvements pretty quickly. I suggest taking a picture of your forward head posture before starting the routine, and after a week or two in order to track your progress.”
