Have you ever noticed that some people start getting shorter as they get older? One of the causes is that vertebrae start to break down over time, and older people, in particularly women, can develop a hunched-over look. Exercise in general helps keep bones strong and staves off this deterioration. Today's exercise stretches the vertebrae which zeros in on that hunchy back problem. Oh, and go drink a glass of milk.

No Humpback
Do you find yourself slouching over your desk after long hours doing close-up work? Not only does this simple exercise reduce the possibility of getting a humpback, but doing this exercise daily over a period of two or more months can actually remove symptoms of an existing humpback. As an added perk, this exercise can alleviate a double chin. Isn't aging fun?
  1. Sit in a chair that doesn't have a tilting back.
  2. Keep feet flat on the floor, hip-width apart. The heels of your feet should be directly under the backs of your knees.
  3. Balance your upper body with equal weight on both sides of your butt. Hang your arms over the back of your chair with fingers interlaced and palms together. Notice which thumb is on top.
  4. Keeping your breastbone lifted, breathe naturally and drop your head back over the back of your chair. Look at the ceiling with a softened focus and notice your peripheral vision. Breathe deeply.
