    I have the same problem. You need to go someone qualified in sports massage, they helped me alot, although I havent tried all the tips yet.

    The obvious one is what you have said. Chest pulling shoulders forward etc...But I found it was more complex (at least for me).

    My glutes dont fire when I extend my hips, my hamstrings do first, pulling my pelvis back. Which makes it look like my shoulders are more arched than they actually are.

    I have to stretch my traps and chest often (especially when working out). I do stretched inbetween sets now too and have been extreme stretching a few body parts.

    Go see someone thats qualified and they will feel around your back, glutes, hamstrongs, neck etc...I've also been told to do certain stretches and holds.

    Unless you have some sort of disablilty or abormal spine (at any part; Lumbar, Cervical etc...) I'm 100% sure it can be put right.
