Does anyone get completely defeated when it comes to thinking about how life in general sets us up to be a complete pussy. Oh you work a desk job, like every other american, enjoy your internally rotated shoulders.. Oh you sit for the majority of your day, have fun with hyperlordosis... It bugs me that living a normal life sets us up for all this shitty posture problems that will eventually lead to an injury in the gym. I had a friend who had perfect posture and was an amazing lifter, thing is he didn't work and lived off his brother. He had all the time in the world to do stretches and self massage stuff all day then go and lift.
Have you checked out these articles on T-Nation?
I'm having some posture problems, mainly anterior pelvic tilt, sloping shoulders, forward head, left side hips and shoulders sitting higher, etc. None are very serious atm, but I'd like to get them fixed.
It's a full 7 week program divided into two parts suited for all types of posture problems. Also includes a whole bunch of self tests, stretches, case studies, and so on.
Not sure if I wanna do it now though. In the middle of my bulk and major lifts are still going up. Might do it before the next cut.
Yeah, it seemed like quite a lot.
Just the workout alone would probably take me well over an hour figuring out all the exercises and then you got like 5 other stretches to do every day. I might try it still since my posture has frustrated me for some time. Anterior pelvic tilt, forward head and sloping shoulders is not a good look.
