What's your driving style - the "lean-back", the "grandmother hunch" or the "crooked neck"?
Believe it or not, the way you sit when you drive can affect your performance in the gym. In our latest video, Dr. Ryan Godfrey of Body Therapy Inc explains why bad posture can lead to problems in your favorite activity, whether you're a CrossFitter, runner, cyclist, triathlete, or surfer.
Posture Tips While Driving
Here's a few tips Dr. Ryan shares in the video:
- Use the headrest! It's there for a reason. Keep your head back against the head-rest to avoid the crooked-neck or "grandmother hunch" that causes your neck to lean forward
- Keep your shoulders back
- Make sure you have lumbar support
One way to ensure proper posture is to use a post workout car seat cover that includes back support. Check out Dry Rub to learn more.
