I have really big problems with my posture. I spent a lot of time sitting at computer for many years. My shoulders are rounded, they go forward and due to this my neck is overloaded. I have also forward neck and head.
I tried to stretch my pecs many times - but stretching did not help and it caused pain when stretched too much.
I tried also to strengthen my back muscles - but I always found the exercises difficult, leaving me with sore back muscles and not much improvement.
What I have recently found out is that when I fully open my palms (I mean straightening all my fingers, like I want to grab something really big... fingers must be all in line and wide) then my shoulders get slowly fixed - automatically - without any effort (except for the effort of holding the palms).
Just holding my palms open makes my shoulders get in correct position, I feel my chest getting wider, scapulas going down and everything feels better, including my neck.
So just by opening palms I have almost instantly achieved something what I have not achieved by years of experimenting with all sorts of exercises.
The problem is that it works only when I have my palms open. When I stop doing it, then my shoulders get back and everything is as before.
I really really don't understand it..... what's going on? Why does it work? What is the problem?
P.S. sorry for my english
