Does lifting correct postural issues?

May have anterior pelvic tilt, weak glutes, and just some general posture problems.

Will lifting solve these? I don't want to get into stretching or any shit like that, just wondering if straight up lifting will have the side effect of fixing the postural problems?

No. It'll make them worse if you don't know what you're doing.

Google around a bit, they're easy to fix though. Anterior pelvic tilt for an example is caused by strong tight quads and the glutes, maybe hamstrings and abs being loose.

The obvious solution here is to stretch quads, build muscle in the abs, glutes and maybe hamstrings. Aswell as consciously making a posture change: Tense your abs, tense your glutes and maybe hamstrings. You'll feel your hips rotate forward. It'll feel weird at first, but keep doing it whenever you can, and it'll eventually feel natural (and it is)

Other posture problems follow the same principle. Don't stretch muscles that are already loose.

Well I don't really know if I have it for sure. But I guess doing the steps to correct it won't hurt.

But you're saying if I just started squatting or deadlifting now a lot then it wouldn't help and actually hurt me?

Do you sit a lot? 90% chance you have it.
If you wear a belt, does the belt buckle point downwards? If so, then you have it for sure (unless you're fat or something)

>But you're saying if I just started squatting or deadlifting now a lot then it wouldn't help and actually hurt me?
Aslong as you start fixing the issues as you lift, there'll be no problems with lifting as you fix them.
The problem is if you never fix them, and eventually get to lifting very heavy, they'll be your weak point and injure you eventually.

Here's a really good read for it. It's pretty spot-on about everything, surprisingly. The same methods can be applied to all posture problems (e.g. if you're a hunchback, stretch pecs and work out your back more)

Okay yeah I'm pretty sure my belt is lower than the back of my pants if I have one, but I'd have to check.

I do sit a lot. Obviously. The main reason I thought about fixing it is (correct me if I'm wrong) but having apt makes your pelvis appear wider as your glutes are weak.

Anterior pelvic tilt is neccesary in the squat you moron. You need for when you lift.

There is a battle between your hamstring and lower back for the pelvis. The lower back must win, and do so must be in line with the pelvis, which is obtained through anterior pelvic tilt.

What does any of that have to do with having poor posture and APT while not lifting you god damn fool?

Doing a heavy exercise repetitively will eventually affect your posture.

I didn't take my bad postural issues whilst lifting/rowing and it made it tens times more painful. I am now lifting again but with the guidance of a physiotherapist, still getting gains and my back feels way better.

I'd recommend you should do something like this.

Yes.

You've already got the right mindset. Free weights, no smith machine. Good luck.

This may be a stupid question but are you supposed to walk around with your core and abs flexed?

You should think about slightly sucking in your navel towards your spine.
