    Ok so I'm pissed, but I'm tired of being weak so starting next week I'm going to be on a clean bulk. Here are my end of cut pics. Weighed in at 156 at the gym today, probably holding a shitload of water, w/e I'm pissed.

    blah blah blah shitty lighting, yadda yadda.

    You should retake thoes and actually flex & pose. As opposed to just standing there, slumped over and head down.

    it's called kyphotic-lordotic posture... from Kendall's book...

    Head: Forward.

    Cervical Spine: Hyperextended.

    Scapulae: Abducted.

    Thoracic Spine: Increased flexion (kyphosis).

    Lumbar Spine: Hyperextended (lordosis).

    Pelvis: Anterior tilt.

    Hip Joints: Flexed.

    Knee Joints: Slightly hyperextended.

    Ankle Joints: Slight plantar flexion because of backward inclination of the leg.


    Elongated and Weak: Neck flexors, upper back erector spinae, external oblique. Hamstrings are slightly elongated but may or may not be weak.

    The rectus abdominis is not necessarily elongated, because the depressed position of the chest offsets the effect of anterior pelvic tilt.

    Hip flexors are in a shortened position in both the sitting posture and the lordotic posture in standing. However, low back muscles may or may not be tight. In sitting the back may flatten. This combination of circumstances has a bearing on the fact that low back muscle shortness is less prevalent than hip flexor shortness in this type of posture.

    Short and Strong: Neck extensors and hip flexors. The low back is strong and may or may not develop shortness.

    ^me :wtc:



    I've got enough muscular and bodily awareness to work against it, but my fucking thoracic area is fucking entirely immoble for a good portion, at least in terms of straightening... I might be able to hunch it even more, but unfortunately it won't straighten.



    Best I know that I can do is:

    tuck chin and verryyyy slightly pull the neck back, keep the abs tight, glutes flexed slightly to tilt the pelvis more upright, and engage the lower traps to pull my scapula downward and consequently back to a small degree.

    Even when doing this it still looks like shit, but at least it's better and I have some support.

    Yea thats so true, my erectors pretty much stop at my thoaric back, and my obliques suck. Im not sure about the next flexors though. Although my upper back has gotten more inline with my thoaric, but my lower back is still hyper extend alot
