Chin Tuck (Posture and Strength)

Side view of a man's head showing a chin tuck exercise.

  1. Sit in a chair with your feet flat on the floor, or stand up. Relax your shoulders.

  2. Look straight ahead. Gently glide your chin straight back. It’s a small movement. Don’t tilt your head up or down, or bend your neck forward.

  3. Hold for 5 seconds. Then relax.

  4. Repeat 5 times, or as instructed.


Tip: Don’t arch your back or hunch your shoulders.
