Hello every one, like the title says, i believe i have some problems with my posture and upper back. I have been to a physio a couple of months ago for my elbow tendonitis and the moment she looked at me, the first thing she told me that i’ve got upper back/ posture problems.
I wasn’t fussed too much in the beginning but recently the issue has been bothering me a lot. When i stay up, i constantly feel like my shoulders are rounding inwards, as well as my arms turning too, as if trying to collapse my chest. I’ve read quite a bit about Eric Cressey & Mike Robertson on here and their posture related articles. My chest has always been more stronger than my back and because of that reason i always try to do at least twice the volume for back, than i do for chest. Face pulls, band pull aparts, deadlift, Pull ups, inverted/ DB/ BB rows have always been in my program as well as wall slides, scap push ups and Dan John’s batwings but it still feels like i can’t solve the problem and makes me feel like terribly huncback, along with a not so good look from the back side.
I’ll also attach some pics so you guys might see what does it look like from the back. The first pic is when i stand still and natural and the second one is when i really try to retract my scapula.
Would really appreciate any sort of help or advice, Thank you very much!
