    hope this wasn't srs. I made a 80% improvement to that exact posture within a few weeks. It's simple, FORCE your shoulder blades back and together ALL the time. It will hurt like fuck at first. Don't stop. Literally do that for most of the time for a couple of days and you will see a huge difference. Throw in some pec stretching here and there and do a shit load of rowing and back work in the gym.

    Ephederine actually works really well for its intended purpose, clearing our your lungs. I've never been able to get rid of my smokers cough even after quitting smoking habitually over a year ago, took 18mg of ephederine and its gone.

    Bench form is starting to actually look nice, elbows tucked, shoulder blades back and fairly arched. Got 42.5kg for 5x5 on db flat bench, probably isn't the best thing for hypertrophy, giving flying motions ago though, feel awkward currently.

    Unrelated I went to a UCL bar last night, everyone looked like poor as fuck hippys wearing shit clothes with like peace signs on them and the girls all looked like dykes. This is how I imagine american universities are, also they all had fucking technical back packs.

    fuck I have terrible posture as well. don't think I have it as bad as the pic because of his lower back but my shoulders are definitely rounded and my neck posture is probably more forward.

    been doing chin tucks for a while but to no avail. also been hitting my rear delts more and trying to stretch my pecs but I don't see any changes.

    On my third month of boring but big, its really helped me in a lot of areas especially giving me sufficient working sets to address forms and weaknesses. I think I will run it for 3 months every year. The additional volume filled me out well too.

    Holy shit...just tried putting on the jeans I wore all last summer...felt like I was trying on my girlfriends pants. Super depressing knowing how many clothes I have in my closet just sitting gathering dust. I might have to do a massive B&S unloading soon. Someone who is a sz 32 might get really, really lucky.

    If you mean true waist...yes. Got a pair of lightly worn EPs(Epaulet) in sz 32 that I think measure at 33 and the same with a pair of black jean shop rockers.

    noticed today that the resolutioners at the gym are already down by about 50% from 3 weeks ago. All those memes about january gym goers are true and not actually an exaggeration.

    Speaking of terrible posture, not you just everyone behind you.

    Guy to the right of me has some of the worst form I've ever seen. I think he's trying progressive overload on the tricep kick back or something because he was trying to use 22kg dbs on it and the form was hilarious.
