Reminder to be careful with your posture. I had shitty posture and now I'm paying the price after enough years sitting terribly. Keep yourself straight, otherwise you'll be like me with neck pain.
Don't make yourself uncomfortable for gaming sake. Also take some time to walk around every day if you don't already get that at work. It helps keep your body properly aligned.
More likely Kyphosis
That shit is treatable with lots of stretching and stuff every day, loo kit up dude with the S shape
No, not that fucked up, I had a friend who had that and had to get an operation. Shit sucked.
I was saying from the same perspective of OP's picture.
It's like when I try to get straight I look like a centaur, like my ass or hips move. Instead of being a straight line.
I read somewhere that they say a more inclined seating position is actually better for you rather than the traditional "sitting up straight" theory.
Dunno how true it is
>that feel when losing sensitivity in a leg and thinking I hurt a musle
>that feel when it was a pinched nerve on the back
>that relief when sitting right for 2-3 days make the pain that lasted for month disapear.
Hybrid nigger rigging master race.
Gotta take care of my 28 year old hiki body.
>spent most of life hunching forward, never stood straight
>first job involves standing up for 7 hrs a day
>get upper back pain all the time, eventually it intensifies to the point where I still have it after a weekend of rest
>have to quit job
>start working on my posture but its hard
>have to consiously rejust myself when standing all the time, feel like I look stupid standing straigh even though its the default position
>still get the upper back pain from time to time
I do this. When I sit like this for long periods of time, I feel my knees get weak as fuck. It's basically "Woman oppressing machine" over a long period of time. My setup is changing soon, though, so I should be able to fix my posture. Still, comfy as this may be initially, it's horrible for posture/joint integrity.
Sitting like that is probably the reason I have lordosis.
I don't care about my health or looks. Why should I care? To get sex? If I want sex then I just rape some girl. To defend myself? If I want to defend myself then I just use melee weapons.
This is how I sit a lot. (legs on table) had to add the penis for perspective cause I suck at paint. I did this in school too which confirmed me being an autist. I guess I have really flexible legs.
Don't discriminate. Skeletons are just like normal people.
>not choosing squat as your default seating position
>Not leaning back and folding your legs up onto the seat
Basically this, the human torso is designed to recline. Modern chairs are the fruit of satan, they force the body to sit either upright or slouch, and sitting upright is fucking impossible under most circumstances so slouch it is.
this has how i've always been
its fucked my posture so hard
don't do this, guys. especially not for years
if you have kids and see them doing it make em stop
I lay down in bed and either put my laptop my side or stomach.
...I dont think this is healthy. I dunno if its related or not but I havent taken a good, fast, healthy, complete shit in a while.
I . . . I think I have this. "Rob Liefeld" back. I want to put my hand on the front of my spine and just push until it straightens out, but all my organs are in the way so I just hurt.
3 months ago, I couldn't get my ass further down than just below my knees. I thought this was pretty normal. Then I started squatting. I'm now doing 85kg and my ass can now touch the ground without problems. Feels fucking good man.
I spend a good amount of time on my feet maybe about 4-5 hours a day sat down.
I do boxing too so physically i'm pretty fit. Brain damage is probably more likely than misaligned spine for me
Raise your monitor so your eyes are directly center of your monitor while your back is straight, it will improve your posture and make you not feel like a monkey
I have a cyst a little bit below where the dimple is marked on this picture, inside the ass crack,
Its not really that big a deal, but it wont ever fucking fully heal. No matter how much time passes and I stay on my stomach, it keeps reopening and bleeding.
brother had this, they had to cut it out cause it was bothering him. Weirdest shit every, had hair and shit inside it and after it healed up his ass became deformed and now looks weird
I'm gonna post the others I have.
What do you think about my workstation for standing?
Anyone know the health implications of this? I lean heavily on my elbows and knees and my back is bent backwards. It feels so good
I don't have friends anymore and haven't gone out with any in a long time - a little over a year.
I would be excited for a "date" with a guy at this point even if I'm straight.
also, how do you guys keep your CPU safe from those bastards?
I actually googled it and it is pretty fascinating.
Only a little tiny bit. If I leave a bandaid over it and check it over a few days I usually only see a tiny bit of dried blood. I just wish it would go away completely, but fuck spending money to do that.
I should probably get a new chair.
And an actual computer for that matter.
I don't think it will go away, it usually makes its way towards the inside, then it will be a pain
in the ass [\spoiler]
I hope for you it isn't the case, but i would get it checked
like my dubs [\spoiler]
Repeated subconscious alternation between these 2 master race.
this is the point where you need to actually just take a step back and look at what you're doing
get a fucking job man. then buy a waterbed and a ceiling mounted 60"+ tv
Why would any fucking retard do this to themselves?
Do you even look up how to fucking kill yourself before you do it or do you just fucking think "Oh, I know what won't be at all horrific and painful - HANGING MYSELF!"
Hanging yourself is awful you stupid cunt. You WILL shit and piss yourself. You WILL try your fucking hardest to get out of it, but by then it will be too late. You'll have a horrible, degrading, painful, drawn out death.
Just use a suicide bag or something you mongoloid.
Don't do it man, life's worth living, and this is coming from a broke slavshit in his late 20s, who's stealing wifi from a grocery store, and barely manages to feed himself on ~100$/month.
remember that keeping your back straight is "proper" posture that actually does more harm to your body than good
your body knows how it wants to sit
humans have listened to their bodies for thousands of years and a nun slapping your parents on the wrist for not sitting up straight shouldn't dictate your posture
I have a job though. I earn 450€ a month, plus I get the child allowance from my parents.
I live decently enough with that. I am neither ambitious not needy. Plus everything will get better once I finish studying
which I won't do ever
What if I'm contorted in a weird position where my leg sits on the armrest and one of my arms are slung over the chair's back
Office chairs are really comfy like that.
>sitting on a piece of shit like that
>not getting a much nicer chair
>he doesn't realise commercially grade helium won't do shit but potentially give you brain damage
You don't think I wanted to go that route?
Pills, drink, and a noose will suit me fine. I imagine every detail when I sleep. As long as it's done right, you can cut off the carotid arteries and pass out in seconds. The sleeping tabs make sure I stay there.
Surrender your flesh to us. We demand it.
Actually your post made me look it up on amazon and I just orderd a new 50€ chair. Should be here on monday. I guess you just did something that made someone's life better probably, thanks.
Found this chair recently, didnt understand why it had this weird foot rest thing till I saw how high it goes, its fucking ridiculous. It basically becomes a tall stool. Though I wonder if the foot rest is better for my back in any way or not
this works, you welcome
i forgot to caption it but
I have a shitty ass couch that i sleep and sit on and a big tv on a coffee table in front of me about 6 ft away
tvs a 58" so it does well, but man does it fuck my back up. never use a couch as a desk chair, I learned the hard way.
>gf had a scar in the top of her ass crack below her ass dimples
>fucking doggy style so hard one night that I stretch her ass cheeks apart too roughly and actually split it
She had to get stiches. Shit was gross.
I can't believe none of you niggers have a standing desk.
I work in IT and I fucking hate standing desks
If you don't have insoles on your shoes then you're absolutely fucked mode after an hour.
I've had to work on server terminals standing up all day for 9 hours on end, it's NOT fun.
>mfw scoliosis setting in from celtic art
this shit is great but fuck, spending 6+ hours at a time leaning over a desk (right shoulder forward) ain't good for the back
even part of our training involved stuff like not locking our knees because it would cause blood flow loss and make us pass out, kinda similar to how soliders stand at attention for a while, etc.
trust me you do not want to even try to do standing desk mode-o
I keep my keyboard on my lap, usually on a board, and I sit upright while I type. However, this usually also means that I have to make text a couple sizes larger than I used to to be able to read it without squinting.
Also, since I have a split keyboard, I can type while keeping my elbows at my side, in line with my body. It's maximum comfy mode.
>tfw herniated disk
>tfw pinched nerve and/or muscle knots in trigger points in glutes max and min
>tfw after sitting for awhile if I get up its like I have kyphosis and cant straighten my back for a minute or two
>straightens up fully within 5 minutes or so after getting up
What the fuck is even wrong with me I dont know, apart from daily debilitating vidya distracting pain though
So how many of us pace?
I'm self-employed (don't have to worry about looking like a weirdo) so i usually pace around for about 3 or 4 hours a day. Feels good, helps me think.
>mfw I have those skinny ass Madonna-looking skinny muscle biceps, and even after 8 consecutive months of going to the gym and attempting chicken +rice and protein diets, I still have fucking skinny Madonna biceps.
My metabolism is just fucking retarded. 5.8 and lean as fuck does not look attractive. I have to wear long sleeves and properly fitted jeans to not look like an ex-crack addict.
>tfw lounging in my huge comfy ass bed
>pillows piled up behind me
>television right next to bed
That's what one of the trainers told me.
Unfortunately, I can't eat much more than what I do without getting ill. Fucking sucks.
And on top of that, I haven't been able to properly fit in my gym schedule in roughly 9 months due to my job growing and gaining management status.
LA Fit has been eating 30/mo out of my account for the last 9mo without me walking through the door once.
And yeah yeah,
>Parents have okay gym equipment in the garage
>Always tell myself I'm going to use it
>Never do because I don't want to talk to my parents about why I'm using it
They'll think I'm doing it to improve my life or some shit like get a girlfriend, when I just want to be able to see the base of my dick without sucking in my stomach
>Unfortunately, I can't eat much more than what I do without getting ill. Fucking sucks.
Try to keep a log for a week or so and see what you're actually eating, especially ratio of fat:protein:carbs
Some people (me included) have fast and reactive metabolisms, ie they can take in a ridiculous amount of carbs and the body will just burn and excrete everything as it comes: they need to push the ratio much farther toward fat and protein than others in order to gain any weight.
>torso is inclined but straight
>balls are well aired for those hot summer evenings
>put a pillow of your back and it's even comfier
I never sat straight again
Is it bad that i'm like 105 kg but still can do like 30 squats without feeling tired? i'm not fit in any way possible but i can do hard work without feeling tired. still got fat on me though :/
Losing weight doesn't require any exercise, it's purely diet. Working out does help build muscle, improve posture, burn calories etc. But losing fat is purely calories in vs calories out
>tfw the human body is pathetic as fuck and constantly having problems
>The human brain forces us to have worse lives than is necessary
Fuck you evolution you stupid cunt.
I find myself in this position after spending 30+min playing, even if I started upright.
THe left picture is the top view of me crossing my legs.
I dunno, does your weight bother you? I was 225lbs and am now around 170. Just counted calories and worked out a bit. If you want to lose some fat working out will probably do the trick, but I just prefer counting calories because it's simple as fuck and I love numbers so
Not entirely true. You can use weight lifting as a form of cardiovascular exercise.. and it's generally said to do some physical activity whilst eating the regular (or more- as there's more for you to burn) amount of calories to lose extra weight.
Is this /v/ or /fit/? OP, pls
The image is a bit inaccurate, should probably fix it sometime. The bed is moved forward to the edge of the frame so that I'm right in front of the keyboard and typing is easy, and the pillow is more past my chest and under my arms, wich my arms bent instead of stretching.
Pretty comfy, but obviously not ideal for playing games that require a mouse. I just move to my desk that's right next to the stool for that.
what a disgusting creature, here.
Consuming the lifeblood of cows is meant to show dominance over the creatures. What is reserved for their young is stolen by us and consumed, as a treat! Not doing so is shameful and people who are negligent in such a way will be the end of us all.
I don't know why, Anon, but this made me laugh out loud. Thanks for that.
Have they been proven wrong or have I been sitting wrong for decades now?
>SIT UP STRAIGHT
>KEEP YOUR BACK STRAIGHT
Although my problem was hunching not laying back, so I was screwed either way, FUCK
I used to do this in High School when I lived with my parents.
Only difference is that it was on a hardwood floor, since I didn't have enough space for a desk/chair, and I got a shitty handme-down eMachine for free that was setup on the floor.
Shit fucked my joints up afterwords.
I physically can't lay like that for long periods of time. It's why i love my desk. Plus the fact that i have to get up and move around constantly, when i'm laying down i STAY laying down
Not him but sometimes that's just not possible.
Muh battlestation see pic
>"As to what is the best angle between thigh and torso when seated, reclining at 135 degrees can make sitting more difficult as there is a tendency to slide off the seat: 120 degrees or less may be better."
Who 120 degrees seated incline masterrace here?
not me ;-;
I sit like this normally. Its a leftover from when I was a camwhore trap. Always wanted to be fucked like this but I'm all old and manly now so it will never happen.
Jokes on you. I lay in my bed, placed in my living room, in front of a 124" projector screen.
I use myfitnesspal on my phone. It's got a barcode scanner, pretty cool stuff. If you get really into it I suggest buying a little food scale so you can measure some food. I usually only measure my chicken

Yeah, that works alright I guess, but the problem is I've got a bit of screen glare now
ARTIFICIAL NERVES TOO
MINUTE NERVE FIBERS REPLACING ALL THE FUCKING NERVES IN THE BODY THAT CAN GET DAMAGED AND HURT LIKE FUCK
CARBON FIBER SCIATIC NERVE
NO MORE PAIN
BUT THEN, THAT HAS TO BE LINKED TO THE SPINAL CORD AND THE BRAIN, SO ARTIFICIAL BRAINS WHEN?
Help, i can't break this habit
I will never be able to straighten my legs at this rate
Thanks anon, fixed my posture, blocked out the screen glare, time for vidya
daily reminder if you have to slouch or hunch, it's not a good posture
now why can't I remember that, I fucking force myself to sit at 120 degrees or something but then feel like I'm too far from the monitor to read something properly so I hunch and then back tosquare 1
This is new. Explain why memester. I need to up my meme rating to hang out with you guys.
I have my consoles and laptop hooked up to my HDTV on a platform at the foot of my bed, this way I basically pass all day in or on my bed when I don't have work. Always comfy with lazy access to everything.
Shitty posture still though, cause I have spent most of my youth hunched over a desk.
Thinking of getting a standing desk to do DIY and paint my warhams on it.
>not ascending beyond the confines of your mortal form and using the power of satan worship to play video games
>You could die from bad posture at any time
>You will never be able to play the video games that come out after you die
What kinds of exercises would you recommend?
I would love to do something about this shit? Not because of the fact it's bad for you and looks terrible but also for the fact I can't stand up on my feet for more than a fucking hour or two without having decent lower back pain.
>Masturbating to doujins while all comfy and surrounded by covers
mine is kinda like that, but not as extreme curve is also lower on the spine so its harder to fix. I just stretch a lot and try to keep a good posture now. Use to go to a chiropractor, but shit got too expensive and I lost insurance so I had to stop it. At least my back doesnt hurt as often as it use to
>tfw when I secretly love to skip

I hate to think what it's going to be like by the time I'm 40 or 50.
my knees turn inwards thx to bad posture
reminder to have proper posture /v/ only you can save yourself
and i just can't fucking break my bad posture habits, everytime i need to remind me to sit properly
>by moving most of your body under your desk.
Oh if only it were that easy.
My desk unfortunately sits solid on top of a slight rise in the flooring which prevents me from comfortably rolling under, I have to raise the legs of the chair up to get one or two forwards under the desk over the rise, but the position is still difficult to maintain because there is little free space in between the desk.
Not to mention the useless fucking keyboard roller shelf that is too small to fit both the keyboard and the mouse so its functionally useless except to roll out as a crumb catcher when eating food occasionally, fuck it too.

I know that feeling. It just feels so good to do it, but nobody understands.
