Re: Fixing bad posture

Do burpees or pushups everytime your posture goes to hell. Old gunny found this worked well.

Re: Fixing bad posture

Set your car mirrors so that you cannot see without good posture. If you spend a fair amount of time driving this really helps. Simply not slouching while driving makes a big difference.

Probably along the lines of "excessive."

I'd second any suggestions for foam rolling around the thoracic spine...
