Hyperlordosis (Rounded Shoulders/Protruding Lumbar)

So I have this. I've read through the Googlewebs on it, and now I'm trying to develop a program to fix it. I understand that the program should include some sort of selective muscle strengthening, and some sort of mobility exercises. However, as far as designing a weekly routine to follow, I'm a little lost, and I don't have health insurance or funds to see a specialist. Can somebody help me with this? I have a lot of things that I want to do, but this is really getting in the way (and, frankly, I don't want to look like a bird).

Re: Hyperlordosis (Rounded Shoulders/Protruding Lumbar)

On second thought I have a few more things to say. First, I don't know how you diagnosed yourself. Two this can be from several reasons, but I said row to help with your posture. If it is genetic an your hyperlordosis is coming from how you grew as a child, there isn't a ton that will correct it, just make symptoms better if there are any. Lastly, if it is because you are experiencing anterior pelvic tilt, I would suggest stretching your flexor muscles and your whole posterior chain. Either way, go see someone who does this for a living and get a real diagnosis if you decide to treat something you might not have.

I looked through some old pictures to make sure. It manifested when I was very overweight (240#, 18-26), then went away when I lost the weight (170#, 26-29), and it's recently come back (190#, 29-31). I was introduced to the term when the issue was spotted by one of the coaches in my box. I don't have any symptoms other than my posture itself. Aside from the aesthetics, I know I won't be able to do the physical things that I want to do. I'm considering getting it looked at, but I have to weigh these things carefully, as I'm an uninsured law student. So although I might start looking like him, I'm not exactly Moneybags McQuack.

Assuming you have no underlying serious injury preventing
full use of shoulder, also take a look at cuban rotations.

I am doing these for the past few weeks as part of general
shoulder prehab with light dumbbells.

Your school doesn't offer insurance?

Sure does; for a paltry $4,000 per year. I've got catastrophic through the bar association, but that's about all I can do.
