Posture improvement as we age

I'm in my 60's and noticed in my property camera how poor my posture is when moving around. Hunched over head (IT career at a desk), scuffling around, looking completely nonathletic. It's like a golf swing. Until you see it on video, you don't realize how poor it is.

I do yoga, boxing/MMX for cardio, and weight lifting including pull-ups at home. What can I do to improve? Farmer walks to improved core? More intensive yoga? See a chiro? Aggressive weight loss (6'4" 238)? I'm concerned about my spine deterioration leading to back and neck issues. I have a history there.

Look at exercises to correct upper crossed syndrome. You can see a chiropractor for guidance or adjustments. I'm career IT also and have similar issues.

Don’t go see a chiro. These are slow degenerative changes, that have scientifically been shown respond much better to mobilization vs manipulations.

Most chiros put you on heat and stim to waste time and your money, give you a few manips, and the good ones at taking money pretend that they fixed you alignment.

What you need is to work on thoracic extension and mobility.

If you are capable of front squats in a full rack position great. Extensions over a foam roller, bird dogs, prone chin tucks are a good start but not the end all be all

Good ideas itt. I will apply and make a habit of it. There are some wall exercises I hope to incorporate as some internet digging has given me some exercises to try. I have a foam roller so I'll use it.
