[MUSIC] If you spend all day at your desk, chances are your posture could use a little help. Family Circle asks personal trainer Tina Tang for three moves to help you stand taller and stronger. Start with your feet shoulder width apart. Feet slightly turned out to the sides. Hold your arms out in front of you and drop down to a seated position. As if you're about to sit in a chair. Lower yourself until your thighs are about parallel to the floor. Make sure you don't fold your upper body forward too much. Then push yourself back up with your heels, that's one rep. Start in a plank position. Your back should form a straight line with your heels, almost like a table top. Your arms should be directly under your shoulders, withy our hands turned slightly to the sides. Make sure you squeeze your inner thighs together, this fires your core automatically. Keep your elbows tucked in, so that your arms form a 45 degree angle. Slowly drop your chest down to the floor, keeping your thighs squeezed the whole time, and push yourself back up. Starting from a standing position, take one step forward with your right leg and sink into a lunge position. Your right leg should form a 90 degree angle and your left should almost touch the floor. Bring your left leg to the right. Repeat on the other side.
