Ok so I've been lifting for roughly 2 years now with the goal of bulking but due to various things (bad form, shitty diet & most recently APT) I haven't made a ton of progress (I've gained weight, but it's mostly fat). I found out I have APT last year when I went to the chiropractor & ever since I've basically been doing the stretches in this video (including the "cat-cow" stretch & the glute bridge) practically everyday: I've seen some progress made in my posture overall but it still affects whether I can lift heavy, particularly for Deadlifts. I've also been ensuring that my core is braced & my hips are forward when I sit. Here's two images of my posture for reference (took the first pic today & the 2nd last week): I was having lower-back pain from doing the conventional DL & was suggested to try the Sumo. I tried pulling Sumo on a few workouts & was told my form was whack. The last workout I pulled sumo I kept the bar as close to my shins as possible but my lower-back started hurting on just the warm-up sets so I skipped the work set & have been on a downward spiral with going to the gym because of this issue (been skipping a few days & will be a week tomorrow since I've lifted). I've made a thread about this & was suggested to do various exercises like Good Mornings, Front Squats, Glute Ham Raises, Romanian DLs & Reverse Hypers, etc. (I do StrongLifts 5x5 btw). Trouble is, I'm always pressed for time & don't have the time to spend 2 1/2 or 3 hours in the gym (I work 9-5 & my gym is 10 -15 minutes from home & my office. I'm usually in the gym for about 2 hours, get out around 8:30 pm). My question is, did you guys just do stretches to fix your APT or did you make the sacrifice & did various assistance exercises after your work sets to fix this issue? Some YouTuber said the best way he fixed his APT was Reverse Hypers & not stretching. My gym's Reverse Hyper doesn't have a strap but the 4 pads where you put your legs through them & it's very unstable & not sturdy. I'm just unsure of what's the smartest & most effective approach to rapidly resolving this issue is. I feel like stretching is good, but there's gotta be a more effective approach. It's absolute hell trying to make gains when having this issue & I'm unsure if I should just focus on fixing it & not Squat or DL. I have a strong desire to become stronger & athletic but this issue is very demotivating & having bad posture makes gaining any progress ridiculously tough. I feel like this issue is the biggest thing that's impeding me from making any gains.
