    Has anyone done these and noticed good results?

    Also does anyone know what I should do for sets/reps on chin tucks? Do I hold the tuck for a certain amount of seconds or whats the deal here? Ceaze?

    Currently I am working on fixing my anterior pelivc tilt (slight) and increasing shoulder felxibility. It works. I mainly do hip felxor stretches, glute briges, lower back stretches, and various shoulder stretches.

    sets of 20 are fine... hold each rep for a couple seconds

    I'm pretty sure I have the same problem with my pelvis but also my upper back is fucked too. I just took a couple pics. I'm wondering which posture exercises would help me most?

    I can hold good posture of the lumbar and cervical spinal areas, but my immobile thoracic = makes me look hunched over if I do.



    I've been working on mobilizing it using foam roller exercises and stuff and haven't seen a huge improvement, but it takes time and and I'm confident I'm getting there. I also am not being consistent enough.

    heavy rack pulls w/ locking out at the top for 5-7 seconds helped my posture more than anything else has done for me.

    looks to me like you have more than normal lordosis of the cervical spine, but i'd have to see your ears to tell

    but you could benefit from foam roll exercises as well as a t-stretch against the wall...other than that you look fine

    hold chin tucks for 10 seconds. cervical isometrics for flexion and extension could help for stabilizing
