    Kyphosis

    Hi i'm a 24 year old male with postural kyphosis who lifts weights two or three times a week. mainly i do squats and dumbell curls and also use the tricep bar for vertical rows. Anyway i am worried that lifting heavy weights could make my kyphosis worse. Is this likely or possible? Should someone with kyphosis be lifting weights? I find it hard to keep good posture whilst doing squats etc. Please help.

    Based on the fact that a kyphosis means an increased curvature of the spine towards your abdomen, and generally occurs at the lumbar spine, then I would suggest working on your spine's postural muscles (such as the multifidii) as well as the larger back muscle groups.

    Perhaps a lifting belt would help for heavier weight loads to give you support to maintain good form?
