With what seems like more than 78 million books about fixing your posture, so what what makes this one different? Three things:We bust the myths surrounding bad posture, good posture, pain, muscular tightness, and how to approach them from a scientific standpoint.Instead of a cookie-cutter routine, we’ll show you how to select the right exercises for your own needs.Since even the best routine is useless if you don’t actually do it, we’ll show you how to integrate better movement habits during the other 23.5 hours of the day.Written by two physical therapists who have worked with thousands of people around the world, Overcoming Poor Posture is based on one simple idea: there is no such thing as perfect posture.No two bodies are alike, and we’ll teach you how to find your own best alignment so you can live each day in health and comfort while performing your best in all the activities that matter to you. Instead of a painful issue to fix, you’ll learn to think of your postural alignment as a dynamic component of how you sit, stand, and move in your body.Inside, you’ll find:Practical, real-life explanations about the factors that have shaped your posture, the link between poor posture and pain, and how your posture impacts lifestyle.Clear pictures demonstrating exercises for alignment, mobility, strength, and motor patterning, all with detailed instructions.Tips for making a habit of better posture throughout your day.Instruction for choosing the right exercises and structuring a routine that fits your body and goals.An appendix with sample programs you can use to get started right away.Put it all together, and you’ve got a systematic approach to refining your posture for better health and performance in everything you do.If you’re already aware of many of the different exercises for posture, many of the exercises may be familiar to you. However, we teach and show you to put them together coherently with progression to work toward specific goals instead of just throwing them at your body hoping they will work.

The first part of the book contains background information to set you up for understanding the why’s of the exercises to follow later. The information is brief enough to not distract to much from the practical applications, but thorough enough to build some basics you can use to create your own workouts. If you’re interested in further reading, you’ll find resources to start your own research.I would recommend some basic knowledge about training theory and sports related biomechanics to easily browse through the posture specific theory. For me it was written well to the point and if you need more basic knowledge Steven Lows own Overcoming Gravity would be a great starting point.The meaty part of the book is filled with enough posture exercises to tackle your own imbalances and build up a repartoire you can apply to most customers needs.This is what makes the book a truly valuable addition to the library for me.Highly recommended for any health oriented trainer and everybody with basic training knowledge who wants to work on their posture.For total beginners the predefined workouts will work well too, but the rest of the book may not be easily understandable without further research.

Gutes Buch, beschreibt detailiert welche Übungen die Haltung verbessern können und wie wichtig es ist neu Gewohnheiten zu entwickeln und alte abzulegen um nachhaltig die Haltung zu verbessern

Discusses awareness of bad habits/posture and then has some simple but effective exercises for neck and back. Simple but effective exercises.

das was ich erwartet habe. Langatmige Einführung und die Übungen aus meiner Sicht nur was für Nichtsportler. Was ich gesucht habe, fand ich dann kompakter und besser auf Youtube (da gibt es auch Beiträge von Sportmedizinern und von Trainern, die lesten und schreiben können, einige jedenfalls, vermutlich). Auch mit overcoming gravity hatte ich so meine Probleme, frei nach “ich hatte keine Zeit, mich kurz zu fassen”. Nicht mein Autor. Vielleicht wird er pro Zeile bezahlt.

Alles bestens.

Von Steven Low bin ich höchste Qualität gewohnt, wie z.B. sein anderes Buch (Overcoming Gravity 2), welches ein Meisterwerk ist. Jedoch ist Overcoming Poor Posture enttäuschend. In dem Buch wird nicht ein einzige Mal gesagt wie gute Körperhaltungen auszusehen haben & wie man diese erreicht. Bedenklich, wobei es doch genau das ist worum sich dieses Buch dreht.Nach dem dürftigen Theorieteil der die erste Hälfte des Buchs ausmacht, folgen die einzelnen Übungen, welche auch enttäuschen. Für jemanden, der mit Sport und Mobility absolut nichts am Hut hat mögen diese ihren Zweck erfüllen, aber wer bereits sportlich ist, vor allem die Leute mit Expertise in Calisthenics/Bodyweight Training werden mit den Übungen aus dem Buch nichts anfangen können, da es erstens viel effektivere gibt und sie zweitens auf absolut ungelenkige unbewegliche Menschen ausgelegt sind, die nicht mals ihren Hals zur Seite drehen können. Des weiteren sind die Erklärungen und Bilder teils so schwammig und ungenau, dass man selber rätseln muss wie die Übung nun wirklich ausgeführt werden soll. Eine viel bessere Alternative zu diesem Buch ist “Sitzen ist das neue Rauchen” von Dr. Kelly Starrett.
