Do not get confused by the online articles or magazines you read about the best techniques for working out. Also, focusing on one type of exercise in order to work on a specific muscle is a wrong approach.

For the best posture, arch the back slightly, push your chest up and let the head and neck rest in a neutral position. Work on getting a strong core and you will get a healthy spine. If you have a weak core, the same goes for your spine. You can witness body and mind transformation in 2 months once you apply these techniques.
