Rounded shoulders/hunched over

Just wanted to add a little bit....
With posture problems, I would take a couple of weeks to correct this issue before handling heavy weights (going heavy can sometimes make the problems worse).
Make sure you stretch before using weights.
You might want to try a couple of weeks of Corrective Training.
This would involve 6-8 exercises per workout with 1-2 sets per exercise and 12-15 reps per set.
Your rest interval should not be very long, and 30 seconds would be a good place to start. Make sure your form is tip top!
I'm just throwing ideas out there... well GOODLUCK!

I have severe postural problems. It makes my gut look about 10 times larger than it actually is. I'm also incredibly knock kneed... a really really obvious lack of flexibility is evident. I'm a mess.

Take action now because it gets a lot harder to deal with 10-20-30 years from now. I have a hell of a lot harder time stretching now than I did in my teens and 20's.
I used to be able to do the spits and snap kick the top of doorframe. If I tried that now I'd break. lol

Yeah. I want to go see a personal trainer this summer so they can tell me what the hell is wrong with me. i am seriously a huge mess when it comes to posture and fleixbility. I imagine it came from when I was younger and much fatter. I would hunch over so as to hide my stomach... not so good =/
