Re: Questions about improving posture

dunno, maybe I'm just an extreme case... i can see the forward shoulder posture improving if you shorten the "pulling" muscles enough.. but cause the hips are fixed, and there's so much forcing the lordotic curve, I can't see, logically, how you could improve this curve, how I can decrease the # of ...

Re: Weight lifting and scoliosis

of course, I feel sore the next 2 days after a squat session, mainly in my quads and lower back.. I'm just concerned that, even if I don't get any warning signals of pain in my spine, I'll be "bending" the scoliotic curve more and more..

I remember people saying something similar about me in my past, so I asked her to look real quick.. she asked me to b...

Re: Erector spinae exercises good or bad with lordosis?

anterior pelvic tilt'll make your ass stick out more and look bigger. Belly too! Anyone has a killer stretch for hip flexors?
