Joe Hart BBC pundit of Euro 2024 on his amazing posture!

Joe Hart offers a masterclass in perfect posture. And Strictly to follow.

Joe Hart, ex-England goalkeeper, has replied after receiving favourable comments on X formally twitter regarding his outstanding posture.

“I’m quite a tall guy, I’ve got a long thoracic [verterbrae] and to look after that I have to sit big and strong. I like being tall, I like being proud, I like feeling strong, so that’s how I see. I wasn’t aware of it also, at the same time, that’s just what I do. This is how I do it.”

 Recent studies cite that practically three million people in Britain alone experience back or neck pain. Joe Hart is therefore an example to all of us who find ourselves hunched over a desk during their working days, something he is well aware of.

“I understand that in the modern generation, you can get slumped but as soon as I feel slumped, I don’t like it, I feel disgusting,” he added. “I like to stand big and tall, sit big and tall. It makes me feel confident.”

Most people do not have good posture. Alexander Technique teaches you how to get it. Reading Joe’s words you can see that he isn’t banging on about anything to wear or any special exercise routine. Joe Hart is determined to get good posture and maintains it even when speaking to someone shorter than him (most people).

If you want to develop your posture to look at least a little bit like Joe’s, trying the Alexander Technique is not a bad option.
