Find Your Front Triangle

Imagine your front triangle reaching upward.

Imagine your front triangle reaching upward.

Stand up straight with shoulders relaxed, knees slightly bent, and feet hip-width apart.

Now, imagine that you have a triangle between your hip bones and belly button.  The bottom of your triangle is the line connecting your hip bones and the top point of your triangle is your belly button.

Keeping your hip bones stationary, pull your front triangle up and in.  You should feel like your waist is lifting up and away from your hips.  Feel how this also tightens your glutes and lengthens your lower back.

By pulling your front triangle up and in simultaneously, you automatically engage your deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles.  This will help keep you from sagging into your hips and pouching out your middle, and it will help protect your lower back.

Practice lifting your front triangle up and in several times a day (while standing, sitting, walking, etc.) until it becomes your natural posture.

Here’s to aging stronger!
