The kid in the picture claimed he was tired, and he normally doesn't sit like that. Yeeeah...
For those of you out there that spend a lot of time around young people (and honesty, any age people really) I'm sure you are well aware that that posture in the picture is a pretty common thing. Whenever I see a kid in the gym slouching like this, I walk up behind them, gently put my knee in the center of their back, and pull their shoulders back. It's an instant reminder that they are WAY off alignment.
It's a beautiful thing to see a large group of teens sitting at attention, supported spines and all, before a class. And I have this vision of a classroom filled with slouching teens, except for 3-4 Courage Performance athletes safely sitting with perfect posture.
Take a moment and check how you're posture is. Do you sit tall? What about standing? Get in front of a full length mirror every now and then and check it out. How you hold yourself says a lot about your ability to function. Your posture also dictates your potential for injury. Learn to hold yourself well.
