Forums Back Anyone else “sway back”? Re: Anyone else “sway back”?

    I know your question is in relation to seated posture, but I often see this with clients in the gym before they’ve gotten a good handle on the bracing sequence. In setting up from standing, I usually try cues like “make the crown of your head touch the ceiling” or “make your spine as tall as possible” before getting them to clamp the ribs down.

    So, in addition to hip torque and torso mobility, maybe consider some motor control fixes like this related to organization of the trunk itself, and make sure you’re not going soft through the core after a few minutes.
