Yup...The "W" exercise is Very Helpful. A few years ago, I tore a rotator cuff in my shoulder, and this was one of the exercises that the doctor recommended. I do a few every morning before I get out of bed, and anytime I'm sitting in front of the TV or computer for any length of time.

Due to a shoulder injury 23 years ago, my right arm can't make the W. I do the best I can. My posture has gotten very bad lately. When I'm tired, I catch myself when my upper half starts being parallel with the floor! I immediately start stretching to ease it.

Wow! Instantly feels good! Love this!
I also sit on the floor and get up without using my hands.
Thanks for posting this! I'm going to do this everyday!

When I was a young teenager, one of my uncles gave me a lecture about good posture when he saw me sitting and slumped to one side. He said that I should always sit up straight to avoid any pressure all on one side. And, when standing, don't lean to one side but stand up straight with equal weight on both feet. When I had a job that required a lot of standing, I took his advice. While others were complaining about sore legs and hips, I felt pretty good. Worked for me.

I like that idea. One of our fears is ending up on the floor and not being able to get up.

Haha! I remember as a little girl, I'd just seen a Robert Mitchem, Jane Russell movie and told my Mom when i grow up i want to be just like Jane Russell. i remember she said, "Well, you better stand up straight and put your shoulders back then!" hahaha!
