You do your best to get results from your workouts… you eat well, you train hard and yet you still feel like you’re falling short of hitting your peak.
Low energy, grogginess, shortage of breath and neck and back pain are just some of the problems you may be suffering from. But why? How does a perfectly healthy, athletic individual who eats well and trains hard STILL suffer?
Let me explain… there’s a problem which no less than 90% of the US population suffers from.
It’s a problem that nobody is tackling, that doctors are failing to diagnose and which poses just as many health risks as obesity…
… and you’re probably suffering from it, too.
It affects nearly everyone, no matter what your age or level of fitness. It’s a problem that originates in just one area of your body but affects your overall health, including your mental as well as your physical state.
And the craziest thing is, you probably see
this problem EVERY SINGLE DAY.
It’s forward head posture… also known as texting neck.
You’ve probably seen it yourself, in those guys and girls who are physically active but walk around with a chicken head or giraffe neck.
Instead of a powerful, strong chest, their shoulders are hunched forward, their head droops down and their curved back almost gives them a hump.
It looks weak, unhealthy and unsightly. And it undoes all their hard work.
Your neck is designed to remain vertical, supporting the weight of your skull in a perfect line from the top of your head straight down through your body to your feet.
When you look at yourself in the mirror from the side, your ear, your shoulder and your hips should all be in a straight line down to the floor. If it is unaligned and your ear is in front of your shoulders, it’s a sure sign of forward head posture.
You see, the average head weighs 10-12lbs. When your head sits perfectly upon your neck and shoulders, the body naturally adapts to holding this weight.
But if your head is constantly pulled forward, the weight of your head pulls on your neck and puts pressure on your spine.
When your head is pulled forward the additional pressure on your neck, shoulders and back rises dramatically causing serious tissue damage. In fact, every inch your head is thrust forward from its natural position adds another 10 lbs of stress on the neck, shoulders, back and spine.
It’s why you may have developed that ugly ‘hump’ below your neck; to combat the stress of holding your head up, the body’s reaction has been to build-up bone and fat tissue to compensate and protect the spine at the C7 vertebrae.
Forward head posture doesn’t just leave you looking awkward… No matter how hard you train or how well you eat, unless you start fixing your head posture right now, it may not be possible to reverse the damage already done.
Before I explain why your posture could be killing you, let me introduce myself.
My name is Mike Westerdal and I’m a national best-selling fitness author, sports nutrition specialist, personal trainer, Iron Man magazine contributor and founder of the internet’s longest-standing strength site, CriticalBench.com
Shortly, I’ll explain to you how it’s possible to fix your forward head posture using just 10 really simple movements that instantly improve your posture and increase your strength, energy and vitality.
But first, let me show you the many ways forward head posture is damaging your health and holding you back.
Although few realize they have a posture problem, fewer still realize how many problems are caused by Forward Head Posture.
The most obvious concern is the physical appearance….
Introducing One of the Body’s Most Vital Muscles…
That You’ve Never Heard Of
Your neck is literally the BRIDGE between your head and your body. It’s the balance beam from which good posture flows.
Although there are a number of major muscles in the neck and back, there is one “vital” muscle at the front of your neck which does all the lifting…
… that muscle is: the sternocleidomastoid.
The sternocleidomastoid originates at the breastplate (sternum) and collar bone (clavicle) and inserts at the mastoid process of the temporal bone of the skull.
When your sternocleidomastoid is strong and supple, your head sits perfectly upon your neck. The body follows the head. When your head is properly aligned as it should be the rest of the spine falls into place.
By holding your head in place it maintains your spine in a healthy, lengthened position and removes stress and tension from your upper, middle and lower back muscles. Your upper torso is optimally lengthened, keeping your windpipe clear and allowing maximum intake of breath into your lungs, increasing oxygen levels and improving brain function.
When you eliminate forward head posture, you…
- … achieve peak performance with greater lung capacity and optimized hormones.
- … appear to be 10 lbs lighter and 2 inches taller.
- … train harder, heavier and gain strength faster than you thought possible.
- … are more focused and clear-thinking.
- … protect your spine from wear and tear.
- … breathe and sleep better without snoring.
- … increase your confidence so you’re not self-conscious.
This muscle is the key to your postural health. But any imbalance or weakness in this vital connection between your head and torso sends shockwaves through your body.
And what is the No.1 cause of this imbalance that causes weakness in your sternocleidomastoid muscle?
Why “Static” Stretching Alone Isn’t the Answer
Understanding the cause is a starting point.
The internet has many experts and personal trainers who are only too willing to share their techniques for dealing with forward head posture.
They usually suggest some form of static stretching to lengthen the back and neck, which may give you a little relief initially.
However, static stretching only provides temporary relief in pain, muscle tension and an increase in movement but within a few hours, your forward head posture is back to the way it was since the stretch did not target the main cause of your head forward posture.
You just can’t correct the damage that has already been done with static stretching alone. There needs to be a combination of corrective exercise and other techniques to open up and release the neck while activating other muscles so you can return to a balanced state with proper movement in the neck.
You see what the online ‘experts’ have all wrong is this…
It’s not about the stretches and movements; it’s about the ORDER of the movements.
When you see how deeply connected the muscles around your neck and back are to each other, you realize there has to be a right order in which to exercise these for optimal effect.
You literally have to “unwind” the right muscles one-by-one in the right order to really target them.
If you don’t, you’re wasting your time doing ANY stretching. You need to hit the muscles from different directions using a combination of exercise techniques to properly target them.
Once you know the right way to do it, you can learn to fix your head posture on your own.
Introducing “Forward Head Posture FIX”
Right now, Forward Head Posture FIX is the simplest program you can
use to instantly improve your posture for greater strength, better
health and energy… in less than 15 minutes a day
Rick has pulled together all his knowledge and expertise to deliver a targeted, effective program with a “sequential flow” of 10 exercises selected for their simplicity and effectiveness.
Forward Head Posture FIX DVD Video
Nailing perfect form is essential to working the sternocleidomastoid properly. That’s why we’ve filmed Rick demonstrating each of the 10 exercises of the “sequential flow”. In each video, Rick takes you carefully through each exercise with a thorough explanation on how to target the right muscle the first time.
The video is split into three sections: the first is a Coaching Instructional Video beginning with an explanation from Rick about what the following exercise is designed to do, how to execute it with best form and what you should feel throughout the move.
In the second video, we’ve provided a Follow Along format designed so you can perform the movement at the same time as the video with the explanation stripped out.
In the third video, you’ll find exercise swaps that include progressions and regressions to make the movements either harder or easier for you depending on what you need.
Forward Head Posture FIX Manual
The video sequences are powerful, but it’s the supplementary manual that goes deeper into the underlying causes behind forward head posture, why leaving it untreated can cause long-lasting damage to your health and how you can instantly slam the brakes on the damage you’re doing to your spine and neck.
In just 15 minutes a day, you’ll experience incredible results that will make an immediate difference to your health and how you look in the mirror.
Discovering the techniques and sequential flow outlined in detail in the manual, you can start the process of bringing your body back into alignment, good health and strength with detailed descriptions of the exact exercise movements with pictures.
However, I need to warn you in advance… this program is NOT for everyone.
Working on correcting your posture can be an incredibly complex and confusing area. We’ve worked to create the simplest, most effective method, by which you can see results fast.
We know that if a program takes more than a few minutes, work and life can get in the way and you simply can’t find time to do the program. This would be a disaster for your health.
That’s why we’ve distilled the most effective moves into just 15 minutes for maximum effect with minimal effort.
There is no other forward head posture program on the market today which offers a more effective fix for just 15 minutes of movement.
Use the program when you wake up in the morning or do it last thing at night before hitting the sack. Use it at work or before or after your workout routine. It is made to be versatile enough to fit into your daily routine.

Improve Your Breathing For More Power
“I use to suffer from lots of headaches. When I would go on heavy training cycles, I would also get neck pain while deadlifting. I pulled my leveator to a point of not being able to turn my head; it was terrible. Then when I discovered that a lot of my problems had to do with my forward head, a lot of pain began to dissipate.
In my in-person 1-on-1 training business, I come across lots of clients with forward head posture. The follow along video invaluable as I’ve been teaching many movements already. However, there’s never been a product I’ve ever come across that will quickly resolve a lot of my clients neck and upper back problems in a simple to follow manner. I wish I had found this program years ago.
Most important is the breathing. If your head is forward, you cannot breathe properly. This is one of the reasons people get headaches. Shallow breathing can make migraines worse. But for those that love to lift heavy weights, if you cannot fix your head position, you will rob you of all your power on all the major lifts. Most of my co-worker trainers I work with do nothing for their own forward head. This is a no brainer. Thanks so much Mike & Rick!”

Sleeping Better & Sharing With All My Clients
“As a fitness professional, and gym owner, I thought that I was always aware of my body mechanics and stood up straight with perfect posture. I had suffered a horrible accident in my twenties, getting hit in the head with a baseball bat, and that started a windfall of weakness and pain as the years went on. I would stretch regularly, do upper body exercises, and thought that I did everything to keep the pain away, after all, I was a fitness pro…but it kept getting worse.
I started an online business a couple of years ago that involved sitting for hours at a desk on my laptop. Within a few months I had this nagging pain between my shoulders, radiating upward that wouldn’t seem to subside, getting worse every week, even after buying a “special ergonomic cushion” to sit on during my on line sessions. I went to a chiropractor, got massages, and kept actively stretching the muscles in and around my neck, sometimes taking pain medication…but the neck and upper back pain wouldn’t subside.
Luckily for me after enduring headaches, and the stabbing feeling between my shoulders that lead to sleepless nights, I found Rick’s Forward Head Posture Fix!
After practicing the easy flow of movements and mobility exercises, and putting Forward Head Posture FIX into action for minutes daily… within weeks, I was free of the excruciating pain that made it hard to concentrate or perform even the simplest of tasks. I felt that every muscle in my upper body was more open, and relaxed.
I was more focused, could work for hours without pain, slept better than ever and was spending less time and money trying to find remedies that didn’t work.
Since using this plan, not only am I pain free… I now implement these easy to practice movement patterns with clients in our gym so that they can prevent injuries of the neck and upper body, and recover from the pain associated with the wrong forward head posture.”

What Others Are Saying About Forward Head Posture
Forward head posture has become so prevalent, in part because of our lifestyle – people working at desks, children playing video games, or simply prolonged poor posture.
However it happens, there are major health consequences that go hand-in-hand with forward head posture. They include back pack, neck pain, restriction of your breathing, osteoporitic fractures, an associating with asthma, headaches, and it can even contribute to carpal tunnel syndrome.”
“The brain needs feedback from the body and in particular from the spinal joints and muscles in order to maintain any posture, such as sitting or standing. In fact C4 vertebral level in your mid neck has the most nerves feeding back to your brain and when the nerves are stretched due to a straight curve, it gives “false readings”, which perpetuate the poor posture.
This is why regular correct and frequent exercise can change the false pathway and create new better postural pathways, which can break bad old habits.”
~Dr. Pamela Leader
Chiropractor at the Emirates European Medical Centre in Dubai
“To live a long, active, energetic life, few things matter more than good posture”

The Rejuvenation Strategy
“These days, people are constantly “connected” to their hand-held devices, whether it is their cellular phones, portable video games like Nintendo DS, e-readers such as Amazon Kindle, or they are just using apps on an iPhone.
A Kaiser Family Foundation survey found that young people 8-18 years old spend in excess of seven-and-a-half hours a day using some form of mobile media. As a result, this younger demographic will surely be presenting to our offices with more forward head posture (FHP).”

FAQs About Forward Head Posture FIX
Q: Why is this program different from other posture & FHP programs?
A: Unlike other posture programs which focus on stretching exercises, Rick’s program is unique in focusing closely on the “sequential flow”. In other words, it isn’t necessarily about what exercises and stretches are performed, more about completing them in the right sequence in order to open up and “unravel” the neck so you can begin to fix Forward Head Posture and restore balance to the body.
Q: Why can’t I just get all this information from the internet?
A: There are a lot of videos and online resources dedicated to tackling the problem of Forward Head Posture, yet very few offer a complete solution to fixing the problem at its root. While many suggest stretches which will give temporary relief from any neck, shoulder or back pain, Rick’s program is designed to get to the very root of the problem and give you a long term solution.
You can only do this through using Rick’s tailored program which is NOT available anywhere other than right here.
Q: What if the Forward Head Posture FIX doesn’t work for me?
A: We’re absolutely confident you’re going to love Forward Head Posture FIX based on the fantastic results we’ve seen guys and girls achieve. However, if for any reason you aren’t happy with the product, simply email us and ask for a 100% no-questions-asked refund and we’ll be happy to give you all your money back.
Q: I’m female — will the Forward Head Posture Fix help me?
A: Absolutely. Just as many women as men are affected by Forward Head Posture (in fact, women are more likely to suffer from the extra weight they usually carry on their chest which pulls the body forward). Simply follow the instructions in exactly the same way to learn how to effectively “unwind” your neck muscles to begin the process of fixing your posture.
Q: Who is this program suitable for?
A: This program is most suitable for anyone who suffers from Forward Head Posture regardless of the stage it’s at. Please note that research shows that 90% of people suffer from Forward Head Posture.
Q: What if I’ve had problems with my back or neck? Should I be able to follow the program?
A: The answer to this question isn’t so black and white, unfortunately. In our opinion, it depends. If you are suffering from generalized back and neck pain caused by Forward Head Posture, then you are likely to be ok to try the program which should offer some immediate relief from the pain. However, in every instance we would suggest you consult your physician before undertaking any exercise of any kind if you have doubts.
Q: How long do I need to follow the program for?
A: You will be able to experience results from the very first time you go through the “sequential flow”. However, the program has been designed to be used at least three times a week for up to six weeks for maximum effect. Of course, you can go beyond six weeks and incorporate the exercises into your normal program.
Q: How long will the exercises take to do?
A: Rick was very clear on ensuring the full range of 10 exercises didn’t take any more than 15 minutes. Once you have learned the sequence a few times, it will take even less time to complete.
Q: How quickly can I get started?
A: As soon as you’ve entered your credit card details and hit submit, your payment is processed and you’ll shortly receive log-in details via your email account. Make sure you check your inbox carefully (and the Junk folder if nothing appears to come through). Once you’ve received your log-in details, simply log-in and you’ll instantly have access to the manual, all the videos and the bonuses in PDF and MP4 format so you don’t have to wait to start experiencing results.
Q: Will I need any special equipment or be a member of a gym to do this program?
A: Not at all. All these exercises are designed to be carried out and completed without any special equipment. You can do the exercises standing, sitting or on the floor. We have also provided exercise swaps for any movements that are either too hard or too easy for you.
Q: I have had neck surgery or my neck is fused, will this sequential flow help me?
A: You will be able to do many of the exercises in the sequential flow. However, it is impossible to know your individual situation on what you can do or what you should not do. Thus, we do recommend that you consult your physician to see if there are any movements you need to modify or not perform in the Forward Head Posture Fix program.
