I have an exaggerated arch in my lower back (a condition called lordosis) but also an arch in my upper back ( i think its called kifosis) the arch in my upper back is a lot more exaggerated than that in my lower back..its as if im leaning a bit forward when i stand upright. i also have scoliosis, but i dont think that affects this problem.
i used to have this problem 2 years ago too..i stopped weightlifting due to this and other back problems and started swimming on a consistent basis- 6 days a week for about 4 months..and many of the problems were gone, especially the arch in my upper back.
i started weightlifting again since august, and the arch has developed again. i know that the obvious solution is to stop weightlifting and start swimming again, but i really dont want to-i love weightlifting and i find swimming very boring.
i wanted to ask if any1 else has had this condition, and how it was dealt with. also, are there any exercises to avoid, or any exercises or stretches that could help?
ive stopped doing seated flyes, as i tend to lean forward and i think it may make the situation worse, but apart from that, i dont really know what to do and what not to.
