We all have the power to walk into a room and make an impression, without even speaking a word. But how do we accomplish this? With our posture.
The definition of posture
is a particular way of dealing with, or considering something. Angela Davis, fitness evangelist and coach, coaches you on the meaning of posture in this workout, explaining the importance of standing tall and standing bold. Applying good posture and good form to your movements will train your body to approach your life in the same way. Close your eyes, keep your chin up, shoulders back, heart open ready to receive–that is your posture.
As you make your way through the 21 Days of Motivation and Movement
series, your posture is at the basis of how you approach each workout. As you practice your posture here, take it into your life and hold onto it as a part of your attitude. By standing strong and standing bold, you are holding onto your posture—that is when anything is possible.
Having solid posture as a professional athlete helped Angela to excel in more ways than she had ever imagined. After teaching a spin class for Oprah and her staff, she was asked to come and be a part of Oprah's The Life You Want Weekend tour
, to empower the audience through motivation and movement. Walking onto that stage with strong posture was the first encounter the audience had with Angela, their coach. She had to make it count.
The movement for today is a SQUAT WITH ALTERNATING LEG LIFTS, keeping your knees over your toes and concentrating on your posture, always remaining poised. The workout will last for one minute when the clock countdown begins.
