G'day Guys,

I read the article http://www.exrx.net/Kinesiology/Posture ... hor3102554" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; it's a fantastic one but I would like to know the frequency, endurance, repetition & sets for the corrective exercises recommended. I would be glad if some one can post them.

Regards,
Beachbody

I don't think there would be any hard and fast rules. I do some postural work as part of my warm-up routine, usually a single set of 10 reps (this is all unloaded stuff), and some as part of my accessory lifts in a super-set of 3 exercises usually done with moderate loading and 5 sets of 10 reps. I don't think that there's any one right answer for everyone. Just pick the ones you think you need, start light in relatively high volume, and work up slowly. These shouldn't be the lifts that make you grind your teeth and grunt most of the time, but I'd think that occasionally cycling some of them in as heavier lifts wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

I know that isn't as specific as you were hoping for, but this is one of those things that needs to be individualized. Just get started and try stuff!

And welcome to the forum! Maybe you could post in "general" and tell us more about yourself.

Thanks a lot Jungledoc. one more thing that made me thinking and that is, that I think I've some postural problem like, winged scapulae and anterior pelvic tilt, but I'm not suffering from any sort of pains or restricted range of motions (Generally I don't have any problem, it's like I'm used to it). Now I was thinking that what if I start these corrective exercises and if my posture is trying to correct itself then I face some pains or injure my self... as probably my body is used to this posture now.

Don't focus obsessively on the postural issues, then. Pay attention to them, be working on them, but if they aren't causing a problem yet, don't try to correct them in a big hurry.

Go look for a series of articles by Eric Cressy on T-Nation called "Neanderthal No More". It has exercises and good information. It's a few years old now, maybe 5 or 6.

Hi Jungledoc,

I was just surfing on this postural topic and in one of your other posts I found out that your girlfriend had showed you some exercises or stretches which assisted you in relieving anterior pelvic tilt. If you don't mind I would be very interested to know them with their proper execution procedure.

Regards,
Beachbody

This looks like a duplicate of your other post.
