    been gymming for 3-4 months now and never really worked legs. i've always been self-conscious about my posture and i dunno if i'm being paranoid, but i think i got that thing where my lower spine curves inwards and makes it look like u have a belly.

    there is a girl at work who walks like a robot (perfectly straight back and legs) and i found out that she deadlifts/squats. she has the perfect posture and it's really noticeable.. anyway looking into it it seems like they literally fix ur spine - can anyone confirm (from experience) that doing these will get rid of my queen elizabeth posture and turn it into robocop? i don't wanna be doing these risky ass lifts (every injury i hear about comes from deadlifts or squats) just to find out she's been genetically gifted with the perfect back and legs combo.

    great excuse to start doing legs if this is the case cos i was initially gonna go for the johnny bravo look. tried legs once but it was too boring and unsatisfying - realised that training them is a waste of time anyway (until i'm approaching the stage where it looks ridiculous)

    Fixing your posture fixes your posture. It is something you can work on, you learn to hold yourself in a good position, it just takes some consistent effort. Deadlifting with bad posture is how you get hurt, it won't do anything to change your posture.

    no i'm talking about doing the deadlifts with correct form, not with bad posture. i found a thread similar to mine: https://forum.bodybuilding.com/showt...hp?t=161929063

    so i came here for reassurance. needed someone to tell me they were in the same boat and now walk like a ****ing machine - but after bustin' out squats and deadlifts yesterday i'm already convinced. my legs and spine are in some serious pain lol (in a good way).

    pretty sure i just invented 'posture day'. it also involves doing gay leg and back stretches on the mat

    the way the deadlift/squat girl from work walks is the most gangster **** u will ever see in ur life.

    its that "noone can **** with me" gorilla sorta look. nothing screams more "this guy is hench" then having that walk. maybe u just haven't come across a deadlift monster yet to appreciate it cos it is truly a thing of beauty...
