To Fitness Clothing Brands – A Brief Overview of Proper Standing Posture

One of the many, many things I’ve had wrong with me is single-sided gluteus medius muscle weakness in closed chain exercises. Basically, when I stand, I have a tendency to lean my weight into my right hip, overstretching those hip muscles and making them weak when it comes to things like standing on one foot.

Boring, I know.

But, check it out – pretty much all fitness clothing company ads have people standing exactly like that. I wonder if they’ll be headed to physical therapy soon…

Lululemon

Athleta

American Apparel

Hardtail

Lucy

Prana

Zobha

It took me about five minutes to do this post. Because they pretty much all stand like that.

Interesting.

You – reading this. Try balancing your weight equally on both feet. Your balanced hips, knees, ankles, and feet will thank you for it later.

Stay hard core,

Mariska
