Posture

Is there any actual science that shows that bad posture can be fixed? Seems to me it's all physiotherapy blogs with "6 ways to fix bad posture, the last one will surprise you!"-style articles.

    can u walk while u chew gum?
    >yes
    u can improve ur posture, it becomes automatic in everyday life provided u exercise good posture when u exercise, i do them every session between hypertrophy movements and seen much improvements, i had to lower sit in all vehicles i'm using because i sit straighter

    tl;dr to fixing posture, from my experience
    >train your glutes/hams/erectors
    with hip hinge variations like deadlift, rdl, back extension.
    >stretch your hip flexors
    with atg split squat. tight hip flexors can prevent the glutes from extending your hips.
    >train your abs
    prevents overextension of the spine, which is equally as bad as a flexed spine. sleepy glutes can cause you to not extend the hips when walking/standing so your body compensates by overextending the lower back and hunching the thoracic spine.
    >train your mid/low traps and rear delts with rows, pull ups and rear delt flies/facepulls
    these are the antagonist muscles to the pecs, which are usually undertrained compared to pecs. your row should be just as strong as your bench.
    >stretch your pecs and lats
    shoulder internal rotators, tightness and weakness causes rolled shoulders
    >consciously pull your shoulders back and engage your glutes when walking during your day
    eventually this becomes second nature and you don't really think about it. your glutes should be the main muscle that produces most of the forwards force when walking, and if it isn't, that's a problem.
    wouldn't hurt to include some abductor/adductor exercises. my favourite bang for your buck exercise for those is the mcgill hip airplane.

          no bot, but this:

          I haven't really had success fixing it but I also believe the common idea of addressing muscle imbalances as the first measure is not the best approach. If you have bad posture you also have tight fascia, which can often overpower the muscles you are trying to strengthen (specifically for posture). In my opinion stretching and foam rolling should be the first step.

          >stretching and foam rolling should be the first step.
          is, of course stretch lat and pec, but postural muscles need work, targeted precise work:

          well I fixed my shitty posture with a mixture of stretching, lifting and autistically checking it every time I sat or stood up. you don't need science. just use some common sense.

          >checking it every time I sat or stood up.
          no, u gotta learn to extend thoracic spine u gotta learn to move ur scapula in different axes:

      That on it's own just makes your lordosis worse even though it looks kind of cool. I used to do that and people called me Spawn.

      And then I realized I am just visually fixing things by making the problem even worse.

      Gotta pull chin back and tuck hips in.

      it will work but not nips but bottom of chest, u need to push it out to activate laser - this straightens thoracic, extends it, nips is flaring ribs

      u can't walk up stairs flat footed without straightening thoracic - try it, it's fun 😀

    Mine isn't "fixed" but I've made great progress on it and continue to.

    You can absolutely fix it but it takes a long time and near constant attention. Building a better posterior chain has definitely helped me but I tend to shrug my shoulders a lot(probably from living on my computer from the age of 8-30) and have to actively fix my posture many times throughout the day. I've made a lot of progress in the past 1-2 years though. One good "stretch" I'm not sure what to call it is when you are sitting you put your arms down with your palms facing forwards and retract your lats(pic related). This also consequently has helped prevent my neck pain.

    This is a personal experience but it took a time of self analysis to find the issue.
    I have absurdly tight hamstrings. Like I can't even sit straight with my legs extended doing a 45° angle (Thanks to sitting on my ass for 20+ years).
    Tight hamstrings leads to shit hinge, some other whatever muscle starts pulling on the lower back and starts arching it to compensate, abs also shorten because ribcage is lower than it should be, shoulders start rounding forward.

    I realized all of this because I almost fricked up my back on a squat, and I figured that past parallel my lower back just said frick it and arched, no matter how hard I tried to keep it straight.

    Been months but it's slowly improving

    You want to fix your posture? Get yourself a job that requires you to always stand straight like a recruit in the army
