    So that means you are 13" plus you are under 4' tall?

    (or have a very tall toilet)

    I wish I was 13. Mine is so long I used as a lasso to catch runaway armadillos. Today I use it as a belt and a tie... and I still step on it :(

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Yeah.

    Incidently, i think this is why my posture is bad. It's difficult to walk around with what appears to be a boa constrictor in your pants, so i have an odd swagger. Screwed up my low back.


    edit: Macho, i share your pain. i closed a car door on it once, that was pretty horrible.

    Yoga can be a great method for improving posture. Lots of people simply don't get much back-bending in everyday life, and we tend to round forwards. Poses from yoga that may be helpful:

    Table Pose
    Downward Dog
    Cobra
    Crocodile
    Upward Dog
    Child Pose
    Plank
    Side Plank
    Spinal Twist
    Half Locust
    Locust
    Bow
    Wheel
    Bridge

    I don't have the traditional names for'em offhand, but here's a handy link:

    Hey guys, I just wanted to say thanks for this thread. I have scoliosis and an enclave chest so good posture is a nemesis of mine. I almost always look like I'm ready to go in for a shoot. I'll be spending the next few weeks trying these techniques out so if they work on me they'll work on anyone. My doctor and I talk about this at least once every couple of months so thats not a major issue.

    Also I travel alot so I rarely have access to a gym, I was curious if anyone could list some more techniques that don't require weights or machines.

    Again thanks alot, I'm really glad I joined these forums.
    Planks (both front and side) can be pretty killer in terms of core workout for bodyweight if you hold them for a while. Also supermans (alternating aka contralateral) and "bird dogs" (don't know if they have a proper name) http://images.med.cornell.edu/body/nypspine/back6.jpg Additionally you can do stuff that focuses on the "pelvic tilt" such as regular old pelvic tilts, bridging on your shoulders, one leg bridges, leg raises with focus on pelvic tilts, etc. This article explains the pelvic tilt stuff, and I feel like it might've been posted before, but it's early and I haven't slept, so deal with it. http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=990092

    All that stuff is bodyweight, and core related. Good for the lower back, and has helped me a lot in the past. I can't think of anything at the moment that would really do anything for slouching at the upper back. It's a stretch, but tossing a towel over a door and doing pullups would do a little.

    Making sure that your pecs are well stretched should help keep your shoulders back.
