Featuring Jackson Sayers, BSc (Kinesiology)

Duration: 36 seconds

Posture in the plane seat revolves around four areas of the body: your low back, your legs, your chest and shoulders and your neck.

What I like to do is I like to get my low back right into the back of the seat, get my seat belt nice and snug because that really sets my body up for good posture. That allows my chest to sit over my hips, my neck to sit over my shoulders, and allows my legs to extend right out.

A really simple tip to remember when you're flying on the plane is don't start slouching. Get that low back well into the seat.
