    Posture

    i have horrible posture and hypermobile joints (meaning, they do not stay in place and i have to crack my back all the time). what are some ways in which to improve my posture and are there any peptides/aas to help with nitrogen retention (help keep joints in place). any help will be greatly appreciated. thanks

    i remember a couple years ago this was a trend. and it seemed to work from the research stand point
    i myself suffer from a hunch back. i hate it. and it rely effects my squats and dead lifts, and workouts where i need to arch my back.
    i ve thought about goin to a dr to get a corrective brace?

    i think so, but don't quote me. i can go to the chiropractor and 30 minutes later, feel the same as before i walked in. i am starting to do more rows, abs, and back exercises to try to help.

    Every once in a while my GF will crack my back. It feels good, but I can't say it's good for you. It's like cracking your knuckles, you just want to do it more often.



    As far as posture goes, squats seem to really help me out. Plus I try to pay attention when I start slouching. Having a hump when you are old doesn't look so good.

    to be honest, i cannot answer that. i do know one thing, you will feel amazed at the way your body feels afterwards.

    Are you humping over at the shoulder area or lower? There are different braces you can purchase for this. I broke my shoulder and wore a brace for that and it really helped (unknowingly at the time) with posture.

    I can not post links yet. But search this and you will find OTC braces. Professional Orthopedic Elastic Posture Support OR Clavicle straps. That is what I wore. I don't know if you have a Walgreen's where you live but they have them.

    This is very true. That is why you only wear them when your doing things that make you slump more.....sitting at the computer, washing dishes, etc. It only makes you aware not to slump. Instead of having your mom standing there telling you to stand up straight lol. You don't want to make your body change form, that could be dangerous, just for a reminder.

    Just try to focus on it a bit, you should be aight.

    I seem way better than when I was younger. I would just hunch over 24/7 and think it's all good. . . Yeah, no.

    lol anybody have kids or younger siblings that watch icarly?
    freddys mom is always like "if you stand erect, you wont get respect!" funny!

    but for me, my slouch/hump is directly in my middle back.
    wen i bend over it bulges out...kinda weird.

    ill google that and see what happens, never thought bout otc braces, thought it had to be like diagnosed/prescribed or sum thing.
