Strange Body?


#1

I don't know if this is normal..

If I'm standing relaxed in front of the mirror, my chest and the rest of my frontside upper body part seems hanging down..
As I inhale and keep a fair amount of air everything seems normal and quite muscular.

Is this normal?
Should putting on more mass solve the problem over time?


#2

Unless its postural, which it sounds like it could be. Putting on mass should fix it.

Pics would help a great deal.


#3

It does sound like your posture needs some attention.


#4

If you pull your shoulders back, does it go away?

Then it's postural.


#5

Okay, this is one of the few threads where I think we need pictures to know exactly what you are talking about.


#6

Ok, I checked my posture.

I think its a mix of lacking mass and posture problem.

What do you think I have to do to get a good posture? Seeing a doctor?

they'll have no clue.

Maybe a physical therapist or a personal trainer who has some good experience with postural issues.

Or he could try standing up straight. People used to teach their kids to walk with a book on their heads to teach posture. I am all for seeing a doctor for medical reasons, but some of this simply takes conscious relearning and effort.
