I had this when I was yunger due to wearing a heavy leather jacket and sitting terribly by the computer. My advice is throw out your office chair and just get a rigid fucking kitchen chair, don't wear heavy jackets if you do, and always mind your posture. Do not look at the ground when you walk.
>>10858098 This and lifting in general and yoga. Go to the mirror and look at yourself sideways, now adjust your posture so it looks right and remember the pose/feeling. Everytime you catch urself sloutching, bring yourself back up to the right pose.
There's no other answers, a problem caused by inactivity can only be fixed by activity. It's simple as that.
Also it should be noted that it's a per case scenario. While working out will help with everything not everyone is built the same and it's totally possible that you suffer from kyphosis (hence the rounded back). That's why if you have doubts you should seek a specialist before lifting weights like a retard because you might get in troubles.
And kyphosis (or scoliosis, or bad lumbar lordosis) CANNOT be fixed by "just" working out, or shit like stretching / postural work. Disregard any broscience.
Lordosis cannot be fixed in any traditional sense of the word but working out your hip flexors, extensors and lower back muscles will make that area considerably more stable regardless and can reduce a lot of the pain that comes with having lordosis. This is for slight lordosis though mind you, if you have hyperlordosis then you need medical help.
>>10857300 swimmers all have rounded backs though? >>10857264 if you do change it your jawline, your breathing will improve, but your arm strength will decrease ( less pec activation ) and you will likely suffer greatly as your body stretches the ligaments, relaxes some shrunken muscles, and your spine sits in a new spot at the base of your skull
basically you need to put yourself in the correct posture for 15-30 mins a day, multiple times a day and burn the feelings of discomfort and pain into your mind as good
lifting is no guarantee to help, and if you aren't swimming for hours at a time neither will swimming
I study anatomy for sculpting and art in my spare time, and also delve deeper than the artistic stuff for personal health, maybe i can lend some insight to the issue.
Most forward sloping posture is caused not only by habit of leaning forward but also by having a muscular imbalance between your front and back upper torso. The opposing muscle groups on each side both pull downwards, and people with overdeveloped chests and underdeveloped backs tend to slope forward and have forward rounded shoulders. The reason this is more common than sloping in the other direction is because the chest and front deltoid get worked out from almost every single thing you lift throughout the day, and i don't only mean working out. The upper back, however (traps, lats) only get worked from pulling motions which aren't common in day to day life for people to perform repeatedly.
If this is the case (and i'm not saying it is, but it's more common than just having a poorly shaped spine) working the upper back will either completely fix it in about 6 months, or will at least somewhat improve it.
Lat pulldowns, deadlifts and rows if you're the type of dude who goes to the gym. If not, try kayaking, swimming for distance, or pullups (palm facing away, not towards you).
