It's not that bad dude, just keep lifting and get your diet in check. Eat whole foods not weight gainers. If I can consume 6000 calories a day in between college and work then so can you.
Here's some healthy foods that are high in protein and good carbs.
Chicken and rice
Tilapia and rice
Lean red meats
Lift heavy with good form.... Eat..... Sleep..... Repeat

Your posture is horrible. I don't know if your doing it on purpose to emphasize the imbalance, but you are excessively protracted in the picture. Thats what i would deal with first and chances are once that is corrected and you are moving correctly the rest will fall in line.

No, your posture is just extremely bad. Fix that and get yourself moving correctly from the gh and scap and you most likely will see an improvement in your imbalance.Originally Posted by Troyboi
If you don't grasp the concepts in the above series see if you can obtain a script for a physical therapist. Have them run a postural analysis and then go from there because your shoulders are begging for injury as they currently sit.

Exactly my point you have horrible posture. You just saying that lends itself to it being an actual problem as you were in relaxed joint orientation.Originally Posted by Troyboi

Again that's my point you can change it and you should because that's most likely the root of your problem. It will also be a platform for injury in the future. Go to your MD or DO, preferably a DO, and ask about getting a postural analysis done by an orthopedist, sports med professional, or physical therapist and then follow their prescription exactly.Originally Posted by Troyboi
We are all born with perfect movement patterns granted no serious birth defects have occurred. Ever seen a toddler hit a deep squat it's perfect and they can stay down there all day. We begin to develop asymmetries, imbalances, and ensuing flawed movement patterns as we age and your current upper body posture is a product of our anterior based society taking hold without proper training to offset.

I'm in the uk broad I'm a student so how should I go about this? If its that bad I need to at least try and fix it? If so how long will it take?
03-02-2013, 05:36 PM
Get it fixed and you'll most likely fix your problem. Then maintain it with proper exercise programming, mobility and flexibility work. You'll avoid a slew of neck back shoulder hip knee and ankle problems you would otherwise be apt to suffer.Originally Posted by Troyboi

Okay good, well I posted a four part article series for you in a previous post. I also explained what you should do in a previous post regarding an MD or DO and where to go from there.Originally Posted by Troyboi

Has nothing to do with looks, it's about the musculoskeletal system which is under the skin. None of my posts were in any way referring to looks only attempting to explain your posture and how to fix it. I'm sorry if my blunt use of the word horrible was offensive but it served its purpose as it caught your attention and you are now seeking proper treatment.Originally Posted by Troyboi

This. Your shoulders rotate internally. Odds are your pec minors are tight (more so in your smaller pec) and it's restricting blood flow and not allowing you to fully hot your chest.Originally Posted by NYiron
Odds are you feel shoulder pain when benching touch. Look up trigger point release for pec minor and release yourself and work on stretching and not lifting until you have better mobility.

You can lift but you need to focus on stretching. The reason you can't build a chest is because you're repeating the same behavior. That is the definition of crazy.Originally Posted by Troyboi
You need to focus in flexibility and stretching or the fascia will become so tight it will cut off blood flow and you will get scar tissue. Foam roll, stretch and trigger release yourself or you're posture will only get worse. I'm also willing to bet your rhomboid are torn to shreds from the posture too so bare minimum foam roll those
03-02-2013, 07:05 PM
Dude you're entire upper body is tight. If you want to lose weight lift light with perfect form and then hit cardio and stretch, stretch and stretch again. My job is to diagnose people posture problems and fix them.Originally Posted by Troyboi
Look do me a favor relax your bad pec and then with the opposite hand reach in to your pec minor ( it's to the lower side of the shoulder where the pec inserts and look around for a lump or hard strand) odds are there's a huge knot. This is your pec minor and it's holding you back not because your lifting is off but because your flexibility is

Haha okay I'm not meaning to be harsh but if you want results then you'll need to focus on this. Fixing your chest isn't about just benching more know what I mean?Originally Posted by Troyboi
Look up self chest trigger release. Your muscle is surrounded by fascia which is super tight and can constrict it in time if the muscle is held in a certain position (hence your internally rotated shoulders) it happens a lot to people who play video games or are at a computer or text a lot.
Also go look up foam rolling and invest in a foam roller and foam roll for at least an hour every day. Yes EVERY day.
Than look up static stretching and stretch out all your muscles after you foam roll for at least another half hour. So I can spend half an hour lifting an hour trigger releasing as foam rolling and another half hour stretching. That's 2 hours at the gym. Do that and eventually your shoulders will roll back and should fix themselves in a few months if you're diligent

Haha you're not a freak it's a social norm for tight glutes and tight upper back and chest in today's worldOriginally Posted by Troyboi

Yeah man I'm a personal trainer so it's my job. Everyone thinks it's weight but in reality it's just the flexibility training and fascia that's causing the problems 9/10 times.Originally Posted by Troyboi
