Improve your posture with the any wall, anywhere exercise

Slouching at your desk all day? Have we got a posture exercise for you. All you need is a wall.

1 of 2

Stand with your back against the wall with your knees slightly bent, arms straight by your sides and palms facing the wall.

2 of 2

Pull your shoulder blades back, tuck your chin like you’re trying to give yourself a double chin and simultaneously push into the wall with your hands. Hold for five seconds. Release and repeat 10 times. Tip: Don’t let your lower back arch as you pull your shoulders back.
