    Shoulder blades sticking out?

    I've had this problem all my life.. it's genetic because my mom has scoliosis. With my shirt on I look completely normal, but if you look at my back from the side, my shoulder blades stick out and my shoulders and neck are pushed forward, making my back into an "S" shape. Like I said, it's not severe yet, with my shirt on no one's the wiser. And I can also physically pull my shoulder blades in, then I look normal... but I want to get rid of this condition for good. It's sort of like the second picture here (although I'm not nearly that big) [apparently I can't post links... just search "shoulder blades stick out" on google images and it's the 5th picture]. That's what I look like when I'm relaxed, but I want to look like the first picture.

    I focus on posture 24/7 but is it possible to fix this through weight training? I workout 6 days a week, doing my back every day along with one other muscle group. I noticed that I can't swing my arms back as much as other people on the rear delt machine. My back is gaining some muscle (gets very lumpy when I flex, if that makes sense), but the condition seems to be the same.

    Thanks for any help.. I don't want to be stuck like this forever.

    This thread might be able to help you:
    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...hp?t=123812871


    if your issues is slouched shoulders and/or some hunch back look, then usually that is also caused/exacerbated by an imbalance between your anterior and posterior muscles.

    Working your back and posterior deltoids a lot can help offset this.

    Word, thanks a lot. I really hope it's not a genetic thing that can never be fixed.

    Try some exercises like the cuban press. These should help out with the back imbalance. If it is genetic then it can be fixed. I have a friend who had really bad scoliosis. Things got so bad for him that he had to have an operation to fix his spine and shoulders. Things are getting better for him now and he can do weights again after a year out. If it keeps getting worse, there will always be a way around it.

    Take some pictures of your back. You might have something called scapular winging. If so, it could be a combo of tight chest, weak traps, and weak serratus anterior muscles, or you could have a pinched thoracic nerve. There's a lot of options here.
