Discussion on: Decent ways of dealing with bad posture during lockdown that's other than getting a good chair?

I literally had this issue about 2 months ago. You need to ensure you get out of your chair once an hour and do some stretches. I'd also start doing 1 min planks 1-2 times a day to strengthen your core.

Everyone requires different strategies. It's important to test a bunch of different things and see what works for you. The once per hour stretching stopped my chest pain. The planks allowed me to sleep easier and get through the day without any pain. Goodluck!

Plank is an awesome exercise! It always helped me to get rid of my backache. I usually do 3min plank every day. If I stop for a couple of days / weeks it starts to hurt again
