    Arrow How to fix my posture?

    Can anyone recommend exercises to fix my posture please.

    Also I can't tell if my issue is forward shoulders, or if it is lats winging. Because as you can tell I have like a bump in my back from the side view, which I think the lats rotating upwards.

    train your whole body with compound movements and some accessory work consistently for a couple of years then retake the photo

    If you consciously push the top of your sternum up and away from you does that fix your posture?

    You have anterior pelvic tilt. The best way to correct poor posture is to practice good posture from moment to moment. These two exercises will help if you do them on a regular basis:

    It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.

    It's easy to not be afraid of tigers when you're sitting in your living room watching a television program about tigers. When you're in the jungle where the tigers are, it's quite a different story.

    Jeff has a video on all exercise being bad. It's how he makes money.

    its because your question is so broad. its kind of like walking into a barber shop and saying "how do i fix my hairstyle?"

    you should try researching specific posture problems so you know what you have, and then looking for exercises that aid your specific problems

    if you have a few spare bucks i can personally recommend buying the book "overcoming poor posture" by steven low

    My suggestions,foam roll the upper back/spine,work in coach Dan Johns "bat wing rows",do full range push ups with scapula contracting and retraction,band face pulls and or bent over lateral raises.
    My other advise would be to see a chiropractor and make sure you don't have pre existing issues.
    Good luck.
