This is a good piece of advice to prevent any spine conditions, but once you've hurt yourself you can't do it until you're fully recovered. So it turns out my spine had been fucked even before I started feeling pain, few months after I stopped excersising at local gym. Apparently my muscles were preventing my spine from hurting me, but when they deflated I started to feel pain.

Low body fat and shoulder mobility (when shoulders are mobile it will fix your spine by correcting your posture and pelvis tilt also fixed, but only if you lose fat in the butt and elsewhere so lose first.)
Shoulder mobility can be achieved with under 1 minute stretches and once mobile enough you can sit on the toilet and push your body to your feet to fix your spine. No need to do anything that results in pain like walking/sitting/...
Also get a bed to lay on. Use computer as you lay down. No heavy compression to spine when on your back/stomach. Lose fat with calorie deficit if you arent losing then you still eat too much. As you lose and eat less you will notice that your calorie amount per day goes down. Like from 2.5k to 1.5k depending on your body build.

Examples. (should feel good and feel like doing)
When you wake up.
Before bed.
When you go to bathroom.
When standing.
Sit and push one arm as far as you can. So that shoulder blade is moving away from your spine/back towards your side.
Push your arms/hands up as far as you can reach.
Reach towards opposite leg but not down to your toes but up and to the side naturally no need to force just try to push.
These dont have to be 1minute or longer than you feel like. Even 3s is fine. But try both. At first maybe short then at some point long and then back to short if long make you feel no gain. Just make it into a habit to push your arms far moving your blades.

>the 2nd part

Should have done some deadlifts when you had the chance baka

>> No.73136222

I dont know your situation but just push like you ar focusing on your shoulder blade moving. Over time it moves more. Maybe you cant moce it at all currently. Maybe you dont have any issue with it currently.
So you can shrug your shoulders very prominantly. If you cant push your shoulders up or your collarbones arent prominantly showing then you need to try to get mobility to your shoulders not stuck very close to your ribcage. Collarbones flat lying horizontally https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clavicle

Push diagonal. Just try many what feels good or that something is happening. Also try to twist your arm and see if helps. Also try wrist positions and hand positions like push your hand in to opposite of fist (not native english and forget a lot so bear with me). And push your fingers hand as open as you can for extended period of time during shoulder stretch. Shoulder stretch at some point should feel similar as pushing as hard as you can for extended period of time your hand open or fingers up or cant explain. If you got straight back and ass/pelvis not in tilt and shoulders not stuck then no gain for you.

Food prices is about 2x at most anon.
Key issue is that fastfood/frozen dishes/TV dinner costs 3-5x.

Thats sidestepping the issue.
The key is that soviet canned food set a extremely low standard, meaning post soviet frozen/canned food ended up being shit tier.
Meanwhile third world basically have no food that isn't completely shit tier.
Basically most precooked food is shit tier by default. Claiming US food superiority at that point is just dishonesty, since its a uniform issue.

Then again, urbanization also leads to people forgetting how to cook, and then forgetting to teach children how to cook, and people stop buying ingredients.

Not really, the thing that is expensive in Norway is alcohol and owning a car. I spend around 200-250 EUR on food every month, and my mortgage is around 780 EUR. Utilities, electricity, broadband and mobile subscription is around 240 EUR per month. I'm also paying another 250 in student loans, and bus card is like 75 EUR. So after all my expenses, I'm left with around 4000-250-780-240-250-75=2400 EUR per month to do whatever I want with. I usually save at least 1500 EUR per month, and the remaining I either save or spend on buying stuff I don't really need, like recording equipment for my music hobby and instruments.

I work with directing traffic. 12 hours days of standing around waving is significantly better than my experience working 8 hours on a standing desk with some kind of rubber mat.
The key problem with standing is that its horrid to stand in a static position directly on concrete, but its still significantly better than using a fucking office chair in the wrong position.

Nevermind that a adjustable desk means you can keep changing position.

>> No.73146996

I was just memeing, but to discuss seriously, I think standing up for 8 hours a day or more is probably not good for your back either. A motorized desk (or adjustable) is preferable, because at least for me I get to adjust the height even when sitting, which creates enough variation for me and I no longer have back pain. I sometimes stand up too for hours, but when I do this I usually pace around a bit and think and go get coffee and go back etc, so I'm not standing in the same position forever.

>The key problem with standing is that its horrid to stand in a static position directly on concrete
Yep, this. It's not the standing that gets you, it's the standing without changing position much. That's why people that use standing desk often have some kind of small step/stool on which they can put one leg at a time to stretch a bit, and also have a soft mat under their feet that allows them to switch position/angle of their feet by standing wider or narrower.

>I sometimes stand up too for hours, but when I do this I usually pace around a bit and think and go get coffee and go back etc
Yes, I agree, this is I think the main advantage of a standing desk. When I tried it i found myself walking around more to just think, walking up to coworkers to help them with something, or just go in circles "hmmmmm"ing.
